Not really a slowdown but a simple case of demand and supply. Australia still wants migrants but there are too many aspirant migrants who want to call Australia home. So the government is taking their best pick.

The bottom line: if you're in top 5 or so percent, you get in. Otherwise you whinge and moan on online forums on how unfair the Australian Government is. I know - truth hurts!

Partially Yes. The Banking and Insurance Royal Commission has wrecked havoc on the bottom line of Financial Industry, which has been the backbone of major Cities like Sydney and Melbourne. Finance Industry has also taken another hit due to Real Estate Slowdown. Banking sector has been shredding some weight for last few months and many have been let go.

My hunch is that newcomers will struggle more to get into white collared roles.

Probably not. You'll be paying $140 to get 13 reports of "personalised" estimations, speculations and wild guesses lol. I generally like the way ISCAH presents their findings and estimates, but this is borderline scammy...
You'll get as good a guess on this forum, for free...

I second with your hunch. But on the upside, if you can get a job and are sitting on some cash, you can *finally* afford a home in Brisbane, if not Sydney/Melbourne.

Australia has sailed 27 years without a major financial setback or recession. It was lucky all these years as something or the else(immigration, mining boom etc) saved it. It can't get lucky every time. It is cruising for a bruising. The US(and along with it) the whole world seems to be staring at a long due recession. Many financial indicators like the US Treasury bond yield curves, Fed cutting rates, consumer spending pattern, negative job growth in high income sectors like tech and positive job growth in low profit to no profit sectors like education and healthcare, raising Gold prices etc are indicative of it. Global protectionism a.k.a trade wars are only abetting this.

Given this, I do not feel the low immigration numbers have a lot to do with the impending financial slow down. It seems like a political decision to make public happy and try to move infra strain from Syd/Melb or just to wait it out till November to see if people are interested in the regional visas.

There is no dearth of desperate applicants in the world
Many will apply knowing fully well that they will not get jobs of their skill in rural Australia but with the hope that they will somehow survive for 3 years and then move to cities or try to beat the system even earlier

So initially the scheme will be a success, but doubt if in the long run it will succeed

Cheers

There is a real problem happening with over population in the major cities, and I think the public and government are getting more and more aware of this. In Sydney alone I have seen tremendous changes in just under 7 years, from increased road and public transport congestion to increased competition for a given service (ie. GP, school, etc). They build a lot of apartments but they don't do enough city planning. Some parts of the city are so grid locked that the infrastructure performs worst than most 3rd world countries, I'm not even exaggerating.

At the same time all the money goes to the major cities, and pretty much nothing is invested into rural areas. And that's also a massive problem. We know we need to attract more people outside the cities, but how does the government expect migrants to remain in regional areas if there are no adequate services or jobs?

Australia's economic growth relies almost solely on immigration. There is a reason why Australia didn't know recession and it's not because of the coal mines. It's because immigration numbers are so high that you can always inflate demand, and as a result production too.

Australia is in a bit of Catch-22 between spending the money to make rural areas attractive and spending the money to address rapid overcrowding in the cities. The best solution to solve this is to turn down immigration while you improve infrastructure, but that's another Catch-22 because by doing so we risk absolutely tanking the economy. What happens when everyone's Super starts decreasing, unemployment increasing, etc, especially that the market is already very weak?

I honestly have no clue how Australia will get out of this one...
