Population

The Progress Party’s plan with regard to population

The Progress Party recognises that the Island must maintain a highly skilled workforce to retain the ability to remain prosperous in the future.

We recognise that sectors of our economy have and will continue to rely on labour from outside of Jersey. 

However we will develop policy to concentrate on developing the necessary skills in Jersey and attracting back skilled Islanders to their birthplace. The Progress Party’s focus will be to invest in the continuous learning & development of Islanders to meet this reliance in the face of the changing demands of our economy.

The Progress Party will develop policy to support the need for clear population and migration guidelines to ensure migration into Jersey does not continue unchecked.
