Investment into Africa by multinational companies has increased hence immigration of professional workers has been on the rise in the Sub-Saharan Africa with investments up to 1.4 trillion USD.
While globalization comes with tremendous advantages, managing migration in the modern world poses a big challenge to states, according to Global professional services firm Fragomen worldwide immigration trends report 2019.
The firm celebrates 5 years of operation in Kenya as it continues to entrench its position as a trusted immigration services firm in the market.
“Immigration in the 21st century is a moving target. It is both complex and diverse as countries grapple with their unique situations but top on the list is national security and jobs protection for locals.” said George Mucee, Practice Leader for Fragomen in Kenya.
The 2019 Worldwide Immigration Trends Report features a detailed global analysis of current and emerging immigration trends and patterns in Africa, Asia Pacific, Europe, Latin America, the Middle East and North America.
George says that Fragomen will continue to rely on their wide expertise, local and global knowledge of the immigration industry and cutting edge technology to offer unrivalled immigration solutions to their clients to enable them move with ease despite these dynamics in the immigration landscapes.
The status of business migration in light of all the global developments taking place including the recently launched African Continental Free Trade Area the outlook for the industry will remain uncertain owing to the various push and pull factors that impact mobility, a situation that calls for industry leaders and employers to be well-informed and equipped to be able to steer their organisations through these changes.
