Migration and remittances in Kazakhstan (English)

Kazakhstan is the ninth-largest migrant-receiving and the seventh-largest migrant supplying country in the world, according to the recent World Bank study migration and remittances: Eastern Europe and Former Soviet Union, which was presented in Astana and Almaty on September 24-25, 2007. The theme of migration is very complex and multi-faceted as it touches upon economic, social, cultural, and political aspects of the country development and individual people's lives. Presentations of the World Bank reports were followed by a lively discussion on topics which were especially important to Kazakhstan: labor migration, legalization of labor migrants, the so-called brain drain, demographic situation, and the need to strengthen productive labor force to support dynamic economic and industrial growth. It was concluded that this topic needs a very balanced approach, because migration, if properly regulated, can benefit all the sides: receiving countries, supplying countries, and migrants themselves.
