The national Bank predicts that this year the migrant workers transferred to Ukraine 11.6 billion dollars.

The scale of labor migration in Ukraine has reached a threatening level for the future of the Ukrainian economy. About it I wrote in Facebook the head of the National Bank Bohdan Danylyshyn.

He recalled that the report for January was noted that the proportion of migrants in the population aged 15 to 70 years is 8%.

Danylyshyn noted that a new wave of labour migration from Ukraine due to many factors, most important of which are military aggression, a deep and protracted economic crisis, unemployment.

He recalled that the unemployment rate among the economically active population in the first quarter of this year amounted to 9.7%, and among the working-age population – 10% . Although these figures are slightly better than the same period last year, yet they indicate that the situation in the domestic labour market remains tense. Thus, the current wave of labour migration of Ukrainians is, in fact, is a kind of safety valve in terms of low employment opportunities to decent jobs at home.

“As for the reduction of migration intentions, international experience, including Eastern European countries, argues that the need to apply an integrated approach, in particular: focus on creating decent jobs; strengthen government institutions; to create conditions to increase employment; raise productivity and the economy as a whole. For more effective regulation of migration, we need to implement these fundamental ideas,” – said Danylyshyn.

Note,currently abroad are approximately 3.2 million Ukrainians.

The national Bank predicts that this year the migrant workers transferred to Ukraine 11.6 billion dollars.

Recall that the inflow of remittances to Ukraine last year amounted to 8.5% of GDP.
