An international survey has found that almost half of Australia’s technology professionals were born overseas, which is well above the global average.

The Harvey Nash Technology Survey 2015 surveyed 3200 technology professionals from 49 countries including Ireland, Britain, the US and Australia.

Australia’s 48 per cent of technologists that were born outside the country is 18 per cent higher than the global average of 30 per cent. This figure was topped only by Switzerland, which had the highest proportion of technology workers who were working outside the country in which they were born, at 59 per cent.

This week, Harvey Nash managing director, Bridget Gray, told the Australian that without immigration, Australia’s technology industry would be “really challenged”.
