Relax Immigration Controls on Skilled Workers: OECD Requests UK Government

UK Immigration controls on skilled workers
The Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) has summoned the UK government to relax immigration controls on very skilled workers, stating that existing regulations are too off-putting and hindering the country’s productivity.   

In a report, the OECD stated that quotas for company-sponsored visas were not positive signs to expand the economy. Businesses have stressed that the government's decision to cap visas to 20,700 each year for non-EU workers in skilled professions was a break to the development of the country.

The director general of CBI, John Cridland stated that firms found that the net migration target was negatively affecting their ability to attract highly skilled professionals. He added that the target should be removed and businesses should work collaboratively with the government to offer good vocational education and practical training, which would help to increase the productivity.         

Mr Cable stated that the research revealed that overseas workers will not only contribute for the growth of British businesses with new ideas and innovations, but also will bring their foreign networks and culture to expand their business abroad. 

The OECD said that strategies to support a knowledge-based economy would include enticing very skilled professionals to reside as well as work in the country, which would assist to plug the skill gap and to boost labor force. For this, government should relax quotas on company-sponsored visas, which was launched between 2008 and 2010, when there is no demand for the labor force.
