Germany -East European workers return home -February 24, 2014

Figures of the statistical office Destatis show that while immigration from the EU's newest members is growing fast, numbers of people moving back from Germany to Bulgaria and Romania are climbing even faster. In the last 2 years, around 200,000 Bulgarians and Romanians have left, putting into doubt fears of a mass immigration from eastern Europe to the country. If the number of people leaving for Bulgaria and Romania are taken into account, the net figure for immigration from Romania increased by only 9% between 2012 and 2013 (from 41,684 to 45,484). And the net total of Bulgarian immigrants actually dropped by 10.5% on the previous year, from 21,394 to 19,143.
