Statement by Mr. Angel Gurria at the 93rd meeting of the Development Committee held on April 16, 2016 (Inglês)

This is a statement by Mr. Angel Gurria, Secretary-General, Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) at the ninety-third meeting of the Development Committee held on April 16, 2016. He states that OECD’s 2015 international migration outlook finds that permanent migration flows returned to their pre-crisis levels in 2014, reaching 4.3 million migrants - a 6 percent increase compared to 2013. Intra-regional migration has also risen sharply. Migrants are becoming increasingly skilled, reflecting both selective migration policies and the rising educational attainment of the global population. Highly educated Diasporas can become an important asset for development if countries of origin engage with them and effectively mobilize their skills. The emigration of tertiary educated individuals can have a brain-gain effect by encouraging those left behind to study longer, increasing the stock of human capital. Policymakers can foster brain circulation by promoting the temporary or permanent return of high-skilled migrants and consolidating scientific Diasporas.
