Immigration trends and policy developments in Asia Pacific

Dec 2017

While there is little doubt that the topic of immigration fuels politics for most of the OECD countries, setting immigration agenda and policies is a complicated task for any Government, with several influential factors ranging from unemployment rate to national security to the economic drives and future developments of a nation.

In the recent PwC 2017 APEC CEO Survey, nearly one third of CEOs expect to experience an increased barrier to employing foreign labour, the highest percentage of its category.

For Asia Pacific, with several important and growing economies in the region, Governments in this part of the world are inclined to develop policies for a more targeted approach to foreign labour rather than putting up complete barriers to foreign talent.
