Almost 44% of Ukrainians want to work abroad - survey

Almost 44% of Ukrainians are looking for job opportunities abroad according to the migration attitudes survey of the population.

Head of the Rating Sociological Group Oleksiy Antypovych informed this at a press conference on Tuesday, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"A total of 44% of Ukrainians are looking for employment opportunities abroad. 68% of respondents who want to get a job abroad are among young people, 52% among middle-aged people and only 20% among the senior. People with higher education and wealthy people would like to work abroad," Antypovych said.

He notes that since September of 2016 the number of people who would like to have a permanent place of residence abroad has increased by 5%, and the number of people who would like to work abroad has grown by more than 3%.

He adds that Germany, Poland, the USA and Canada are the most desirable countries in terms of employment for Ukrainians.

However, according to him, most Ukrainians do not consider the possibility of emigration and intend to return home after working abroad.

The study was conducted by the Rating Sociological Group commissioned by the All-Ukrainian Association of Companies for International Employment in early September of 2017. 1,200 respondents were interviewed.
