International migration flows are an extraordinary source of change, progress and integration. These flows have built our nations and they keep being essential for the functioning of our economies, both in sender and host countries, said OECD Secretary-General in Brussels.
International migration is at a turning point. As our countries try to foster a job rich recovery and build stronger, cleaner and fairer economies, we must analyse international migration through a new lens, one that considers the transformative changes that are affecting the world economy and their impact on cross-border movements of people.
A. Gurría said that attracting enough high-skilled candidates for some countries may require introducing elements of supply, as well as demand-driven migration in their immigration regimes.
