"Labor migration is a difficult topic. About 3 million Ukrainians work abroad. Some of them are seasonal workers. According to the NBU, last year an average of about 2.5 million of our citizens were abroad at the same time. The impact of migration on the economy is significant. In 2019, migrant workers transferred $12 billion to Ukraine, which is more than 8% of GDP.
