CBI Migration Summit
28 Oct 2008
The new settlement on migration

With the new immigration points system starting in 2008, this summit aimed to help business and public service HR leaders and executives understand the new landscape for migration and government policy to use the new systems and work together on the new settlement on migration. The UK economy depends on a high level of immigration and temporary migration from Europe and beyond and key sectors of the economy, such as major public services in health and care, depend on strong migration . But these also bring public service pressures and tensions which need business and public sector co-operation if flexibility is to be maintained. This summit looked at future migration patterns with business and public sector solutions to cope with the changes and avoid penalties and reputation damage. It also addressed how to ensure a fair deal for business for those seeking work and those in work.
