The UK government has published its white paper on “The UK’s future skills –based immigration system“ and has invited comments and recommendations.
The Indian Professionals Forum (IPF) in partnership with the High Commission of India and FICCI UK is organising a high level debate on the impact of proposed Government policy on immigration, education, youth and skilled manpower mobility from India.
In her foreword the Prime Minister has said “ The white paper sets out how we will use this moment to introduce new, skills-based immigration system… It will be a single system that welcomes talent, hard work and the skills we need as a country… “
The Home Secretary in his foreword has said “Fundamental to the design of this system has been a recognition that immigration has made huge contributions to our society ,culture and economy –enriching communities, bringing new perspectives, stimulating growth and making us the outward–looking nation we are today."
The panel discussion and debate is aimed at reviewing the report and making specific suggestions and recommendation as it affects immigration and attracts key skilled labour from India.
On Tuesday 5th March, IPF will be hosting Dr Rathin Roy - Director, National Institute of Public Finance and Policy, New Delhi - for a talk on Economic Reforms in the context of India marking 75 years of independence in 2022.
Dr Rathin Roy has extensive experience in managing economic reforms in India and globally having worked in a number of countries. He will will expand on the Indian Government’s Strategic Vision for achieving economic goals as the Indian economy has over taken France and the UK in GDP rankings and recent OECD forecasts predict India will soon eclipse China as the world’s fastest growing economy.
What policies have the government put in place to target the potential obstacles to this growth, such as corruption, security threats and social inequalities? And how can these reforms be organized to ensure they will benefit all sectors of society?
IPF is looking forward to the lively debate and interactive debate session.
