http://www.theaustralian.com.au/higher-education/unis-told-to-act-to-meet-demand-of-asias-middle-classes/story-e6frgcjx-1226498125207Mr Robb, a former vocational and further education minister, raised eyebrows in May when he said Australia could be teaching 10 million international students within a decade -- up from about 700,000 at present. His office stood by the prediction, saying he had revised his original estimate of three to eight million following industry feedback.He said "strangling red tape" and a "one-size-fits-all approach" were preventing Australian institutions from capitalising on extraordinary demographic change in the Asia Pacific, which would boast two-thirds of the world's middle class by 2030 -- up from just 28 per cent in 2009.
