“Conference on Mobility and the Business Case for Migration”

Conference on Mobility and the Business Case for Migration” being organised by the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI) in association with Oracle and the International Labour Organisation on Thursday, 18th December, 2014 at Federation House, New Delhi, from 0900 – 1700 hrs followed by a Networking reception.  
International migration and the mobility of skills represent important facets of a rapidly globalizing world. They impact industry and business in myriad ways, no less than do international trade and finance. Yet, in much of the discourse on migration, industry and trade are missing from the high table. The business case for migration is compelling because it can help meet labour supply shortages, access much needed skills, catalyse innovation and enhance productivity.
However, ensuring ethical recruitment, fair contract conditions, finding the right skill sets and protecting the rights of workers remain challenges. It is in this context that we will be hosting this kick-off event to establish and promote the, ‘Business Case for Migration’. The objective of this Conference is to:
a.       Drive the debate on the relationship between the private sector and international migration in key geographies around the world
b.      Facilitate collaboration and partnerships and to incentivize collective action on critical issues related to the interests of business –
·         Consular issues
·         Skills shortages
·         Labor supply gaps
·         Global hunt for talent
·         Recognition of educational qualifications and skills
·         Factor productivity
·         Recruitment
·         Cultural diversity and
·         Innovation and entrepreneurship.
This Conference will bring together captains of industry, multilateral organisations, thought leaders and policy experts to share their experiences on issues at the intersection of migration, industry and business.  The Conference shall focus on key industry verticals of the knowledge economy such as: Information Technology, Biotechnology, Healthcare, Hospitality, and Education.
I hope you will  be able to join us for this significant event.
