Publication: "Immigrants’ contribution to the economies of developing countries"

  • Immigrants’ contribution to the economies of developing countries
    • Synopsis

      Immigrants’ contribution to the economies of developing countries is the result of a project implemented by the OECD’s Development Centre and the International Labour Organisation with the support of the European Union. The report covers ten partner countries: Argentina, Costa Rica, Côte d’Ivoire, the Dominican Republic, Ghana, Kyrgyzstan, Nepal, Rwanda, South Africa and Thailand.

      The project aimed to provide both qualitative and quantitative empirical evidence of the host of ways in which immigrants impact their host countries.

      The study shows how labour immigration has a relatively limited impact on native workers’ labour market results, economic growth and public finances in the ten partner countries. This means that the perception that immigrants have a potential negative effect is often unjustified. However, this also means that the countries of destination do not sufficiently avail themselves of the migrants’ human capital and experience.
