Labour market access

 On 9 June 2014, Australia decided to add Chefs, bricklayers and wall and floor tilers to the Skilled Occupation List (SOL) from 1 July 2014. No skillsets were removed from the list. The SOL is one of the lists used by the Australian points based immigration system to prioritise immigration of skillsets that are in high demand.
