A number of farmers and rural communities in Australia stated that the new visa program for refugees offered the government will benefit businesses in the area. 

The Australian Government plans to introduce visa-called safe haven visa enterprise. The visa is valid for five years, and under this visa, asylum seekers who proved as refugees required to live and work in rural areas. 
John Milington, former general manager of the company Luv-a-Duck, which is engaged in poultry meat, stating that the refugees from Karen, Burmese, has helped tremendously Nhill community, who live in western Victoria.


A few years ago, Luv-a-Duck difficulty expanding because not enough local skilled workers. 

Then Milington heard about the hundreds of thousands of residents of Karen living in refugee camps in the border areas of Thailand and Burma. 
"The Karen state of Burma, as well as the state of Victoria in Australia," he explained, "When the World War II, she sided with the Burmese allies while others sided with the Japanese. 

"So there is a lot of political problems that occurred when the British withdrew from Burma in 1948 Since then, Karen suffered atrocities under the old regimes."

Millington then approached an NGO called AMES, and he initiated a program for the Karen people whose status has been recognized as refugees by the United Nations. 

Currently, there are more than 150 residents who live in the city Karen Nhill. Most of them work in the Luv-a-Duck. 
"Three of these properties were held resident Karen: honesty, loyalty, spirit," said Millington. 

Visa enterprise given safe haven to refugees who meet the relevant requirements of expertise and training. 
Those who work without asking for financial support for three and a half years can apply to obtain other types of visas, in order to preserve their right to stay. 
However, they are not considered permanent residents, and refugees is not going to be gone and then back again. 
Laurie Nowell, from AMES, stating that the visa will be well received, but only if the refugees were given better access to education and training. 

"They need English language instruction and job search assistance," he said, "We also want these visas be the path to permanent residency for those who qualify." 
Agriculture groups are currently considering the cost-benefit of the program. via news.viva
