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."
