UK Business Migration

The British business community mobilized to force the government to review its election promises on immigration, saying dangerous for the economy the introduction of quotas. In a country affected by the crisis and unemployment close to 8%, a record for fifteen years, the Conservative David Cameron during his campaign had declared an ambitious goal: to fall by 2015 the number of net 'non-EU immigrants to 196,000 a year to "tens of thousands."Six months after taking office, Prime Minister is caught by his promise when his government said Tuesday how they will do it.

The business was the first to step into the breach, alarmed by the new rules can be imposed on senior executives and highly skilled workers as well as others.

Each company is already facing a provisional basis, to an individual quota visa fixed until April. Additional source of concern, the changes in Britain in multinational companies are subject to the new regime.

Increasing the economic warnings with a threat-shock, already used by banks seeking to avoid a too strict regulation on bonus: if barriers are increasing, the multinationals will flee the UK and across the country will pay the price. The Anglo-Dutch oil group Shell has warned, among other things, that "any restriction on the movement internal to the company lead to a relocation of some projects in the Netherlands or the United States."

Japan has indicated, through its embassy in London, the maintenance of such quotas would force Japanese companies to "reduce their investment or to retire."
