Liechtenstein - Easier migration discussed - August 31, 2016

Representatives from sectors including construction, gastronomy and the hotel business have spoken out in favour of liberalising immigration. Their main hope is to make the country more attractive to skilled workers. The business representatives have spearheaded an article in a daily newspaper that speaks in favour of liberalising immigration. The president of the Builders' Association recently spoke out in support of opening the borders – a move that reflects the difficult economic situation currently facing builders. A board member of the Hotel and Gastronomy Association (LHGV) commented that immigration must become easier. He claimed that the country did not have access to the necessary skilled workers, adding that when recruiting, there was no secure settlement. The government has announced a study.
