Australia is all set to woo highly skilled population from the region including Sri Lanka in a bid to create an educated, productive work force to boost its economy.

According to minister for Immigration and Citizenship Chris Bowen, the government in its 'Asian Century White Paper' released yesterday, has highlighted the opportunities for the nation's growth by building deeper and stronger links with the Asian region.

Seven of the top 10 source countries in Australia's 2011-12 migration programme are in the Asian region including India, China, the Philippines, Sri Lanka, Malaysia, South Korea and Vietnam.

The Indian sub-continent is Australia's largest source region of migrants, providing 23 per cent of the migration program, while 18.3 per cent of migrants come from the north of Asia.
