To attract more skilled and brilliant immigrants into Europe, the EU has proposed a new Migration Pact. This pact is made to enable bright people from third-countries to live and work in the EU.
The new pact intends to update the EU regulations applicable to regular migration. This is to make it easier for more skilled migrants to arrive in Europe. The new move is significant for Europe as it has to improve its capacity to attract such migrants in comparison with countries like Australia, Canada, and the USA. Considering that Europe has an aging population that’s shrinking and facing an acute skills shortage, addressing the issues on priority is of greatest priority.
The EU Blue Card scheme enables highly-qualified workers from non-EU/EEA nations to live and work in any EU member country. Now, it’s been planned to make it attractive and easier for highly-skilled third-country nationals.
Something similar is planned for EU’s Single Permit Directive, which is a regulation aimed at establishing a procedure of application for a single permit for nationals of third-countries to live and work in EU member states. It will provide a common set of rights for third-country workers who are legally residing in a member state.
With the new measures in the pipeline, the shortcomings and inconsistencies in the implementation of the directives will be identified to streamline, simplify, complete, and improve the EU legislation.
Long-term residence directive will be revised to strengthen the residents’ rights to work and travel in EU member states. Also, work will be done on an EU talent pool that was proposed by OECD in 2019. The obstacles standing in the way of making the pool an attractive one for international migrants will be removed.
The European Union Labor Force survey has revealed that close to 31% of working-age immigrants form the EU’s key workforce. Hence the new reforms will be taken to improve the situation in the EU’s migrant performance area.
