Paula del Rosario was just fourteen when her family emigrated to Adelaide from the Philippines.

Arriving a handful of days before Christmas in 2009, the pharmaceutical science student said her parents landed in the South Australian capital feeling confident of their new life.

“My parents were able to bring us here because they were skilled migrants, they decided to bring us here because they thought there was a better future in Australia, even if we were doing well back in the Philippines,” the 19-year-old said.

 

Ms del Rosario represents a new generation of overseas-born Australian citizens.

澳洲统计局显示,海外出生的澳洲人达到120年的最高点。

A new report from the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) has revealed the proportion of overseas-born Australians has reached its highest point in 120 years.

660万澳洲人在海外出生,达到28%

The research found 6.6 million – or 28 percent – of Australians are born overseas, with Asia constituting the third most common birth place of migrants.

Born on the outskirts of Manila in Quezon City, Ms del Rosario said she would never move back.

“The best thing about [Australia] is that it’s a first world country,” she said.

“I believe the Philippines is not progressing, or let’s say improving economically, whereas Australia provides us with really good opportunities.”

 

排新移民人数前两位的是新西兰和英国,在过去十年里,印度和中国移民也翻了两倍。

移民令澳洲新增人口达到50%以上。

New Zealand and the United Kingdom remain the leading sources of new residents, although the number of migrating Indian and Chinese-born individuals has tripled in the last decade.

“Overseas migration has been a large contributor to the total Australian population growth for several years – it has consistently been the main driver since 2005-2006, contributing more than 50 percent of population growth in Australia,” ABS spokeswoman Denise Carlton said.

It was love that drew 35-year-old Irish native Emmet O’Cuana to our shores. 

The Melbourne-based website designer met his Australian wife Stevie in 2007, and moved down under in 2008.

Emmet said a “superior” standard of living and a fresh start are appealing components of a new life in Oz.

“My first impression was that coming here, I was taken as I am,” he said.

“The idea of everyone having a ‘fair go’ was very appealing, and it was easier to advance professionally as a result.

“I think that is appealing coming from countries with more of a cultural emphasis on class and background.”

He also said that it was not unusual to run into some friends from his homeland.

“Most of the Irish I know here wanted a fresh start, and appreciate the opportunities on offer here. I have even met old schoolfriends walking down Pitt St in Sydney – on several occasions,” he said.

While Ireland will always be his “home”, Emmet agreed with Paula and said he has no desire to move back to his birth country.

“I became increasingly disillusioned with both the economy and the political inertia of my country. I visit as often as possible to see my family and friends, but have no desire to return there to live,” he said.

The total population of Australia stands at 23.7 million, according to the ABS.

中新网1月29日电 据澳洲新快网报道,在海外出生的澳大利亚人人数比以往更多,660万名定居澳大利亚的居民来自其他国家。这个比例处于120年以来的最高水平。

  澳洲统计局29日公布的数据显示,在海外出生的澳大利亚人占澳洲总体人数28%。澳大利亚统计局女发言人卡尔顿表示:“传统上而言,澳大利亚移民人数比例很高。但当前移民人数比例达到了1800年代后期,即淘金潮以来的最高水平。”

  卡尔顿说:“海外移民对澳洲人口增长做出了重大贡献,自2005-2006年后,移民成为了澳洲人口增长的重大推动力,占新增人口50%以上。最大的移民群体来自英国和新西兰,超过180万名澳大利亚居民出生于这两个国家。第三及第四大移民群体则来自亚洲地区。”

  “这两个地区是中国和印度,分别为澳大利亚带来45万名及40万名左右的移民,”卡尔顿补充道。中国和印度为澳洲贡献的移民人口数值均在过去10年中翻番。

  从国内来看,移居昆州、维州和西澳的人口继续超越离开这些地方的人口。
