NBU: Labor migration processes from Ukraine may intensify

The labor migration processes from Ukraine may intensify in the coming years, in particular, to Poland.

This is stated in the quarterly "Inflation Report" of January 2018, the press service of the National Bank of Ukraine reports.

"Migration processes may intensify in the coming years, in particular, to Poland. An additional risk of activation of labor migration from Ukraine is an increase in the number of students who study abroad," the report reads.

It is noted that most Ukrainians have gone to work to Poland, Russia, Italy and the Czech Republic. In recent years, the flow of Ukrainian migrants to Poland has grown (against the backdrop of the Polish economy growth, simplification of the employment rules, the provision of a number of advantages and opportunities for Ukrainians having the Polish card, simplification of border crossing due to the introduction of the visa-free regime with the EU countries). The migration to Russia has decreased, including due to complex interstate relations.

"In Ukraine, both internal and external labor migration has intensified in the past few years, which, among other factors, has been fueled by military aggression, macroeconomic crisis and the deterioration in the well-being of households, a high level of youth unemployment," the National Bank explains the reasons for migration.
