Globalisation is just as much about people, as it is about goods, services and capital. With questions on immigration policy and globalization heightened in recent months, understanding the effect migration has on labour markets, public spending and economic growth is essential to supporting policies that maximize the benefits of migration for business. Our panel of experts will explore the reality of increased global mobility so business leaders and chambers of commerce can be equipped with the understanding, know-how and resources to not only encourage growth, but to properly adapt to it. Now more than ever, partnerships between business and government are needed in order to harness the development potential of migration to the benefit of societies and migrants.
This session will discuss:
- how to maximize the benefits of migration
- the diverse skill sets and advantages migrant groups bring from certain countries
- how migration boost can boost economic growth
- persistent myths surrounding migration
