In the fiscal year, the state of Victoria will be more transparent in issuing the state government. The state government strives to share the latest review information with everyone in real time. This week, it announced the official summary of the first round of invitation information in August:
1. A total of 170 ROI invitations were issued to six sectors. This round was not issued to the digital sector. Although the medical industry still had the most applications and invitations, 62% of the invitations were issued to non-medical industries.
2. The scores of the basic invitations for each sector are 90-95 points, but the note mentions that individual outstanding talents may score lower than this. For example, we understand that biotech applicants who do COVID test strips only have 65 points.
