The conclave of global experts on immigration today said that work permits should be more liberal for students who study abroad in order to enable them take up jobs there.

The experts participating in the ongoing `8th Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM) Conference of Director Generals of Immigration on management of migratory flows` in Goa stressed on the need to encourage students` mobility to various destinations.

Countries should also relax work permit or visa rules so as to enable them take up work in respective destinations where they are imparted the skills, the experts said.

The first session of the two-day-long conference that began today with address by Union Minister of Overseas Indian Affairs Vayalar Ravi, discussed international cooperation on migration and development presentation of case studies.

The participants, including European Commission, ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) and directors General of Immigration, emphasised that language training should be given thrust.

"Many a times not knowing the language turns out to be a barrier," they pointed out.

Hailing the mobility partnership agreement signed by India and Denmark, the conclave unanimously felt that there should be more such agreements between countries so as to facilitate the flow of skilled labour to these destinations.

In the global economic scenario where Asian companies are on an acquisition spree abroad, the experts felt that Asian citizens will be in a better position to get jobs in those countries where the acquisitions have taken place.

The Asian participants for the conclave during the interactive session pointed out that Europe is giving too much emphasis on the remittances earned by employees, which are sent back to the home countries.

It was suggested that since remittances go to the families in the form of private transfers, they should not be considered as substitute for development support provided by European countries.

"They should continue giving support to the developing countries," the delegates opined.

The conference held in Canacona taluka, 60 kms away from Panaji, will discuss various issues related to migration.

"The conference is a main multilateral channel for communication between Asia and Europe, strengthening interaction and mutual understanding between both the continents," organisers said.
