Australia has set its sights on building more affordable housing for refugees, which could boost its economy and boost jobs, as part of a plan to help alleviate homelessness.

In a move likely to anger the Government, the Government announced a raft of new measures this week to ease the pressure on the housing sector, including the creation of a new regional council for refugees to help manage the supply chain of housing.

Key points:Australia has announced it is building more housing than ever before, in addition to housing for migrantsThe Government will create a new Regional Council for refugees in regional areas to help with supply chain managementThe new council will also help with the resettlement processThe announcement comes after a spate of recent incidents of violence targeting refugees and asylum seekers.

In addition to creating a new national housing and community development agency, the new council for refugee resettlement will help manage supply chain issues and assist with the resettling process.

It will also be responsible for overseeing the resettlement of asylum seekers, and will also take on a role in helping manage the resumption of Australia’s largest refugee camp.

Mr Abbott said the Government was committed to helping refugees to return home and ensure they were supported during their journey.

“We know it is an incredible task, and that’s why we’ve been working hard to build a national housing strategy,” he said.

“But the more housing we have, the more we’ll have to build, and the more jobs we’ll be able to create.”

This new regional housing authority will be a crucial part of that process, to help people and to ensure that we can get them back on the land as quickly as possible.”‘

Greatest threat’Australia has seen an increase in asylum seekers arriving in Australia, with more than 100,000 in the past three years.

The Government has introduced a range of measures in the last few weeks, including a new range of welfare benefits, such as a new $100 cash allowance, and a new program to encourage more refugees to come forward for refugee protection.

Mr Abbot has also promised a new National Emergency Fund, with a focus on helping vulnerable people to return to their country of origin.

Mr Turnbull said the $2 billion was intended to help provide the financial support necessary to ensure refugees and migrants returned home safely.”

The government’s long-term aim is to see the vast majority of refugees return home safely,” he told the ABC.”

Our government’s approach has always been to help them return home as quickly and as cheaply as possible, but we’ve got to be careful not to take this too far.
