CEU Professor Martin Kahanec is quoted in Deutsche Welle regarding how migration affects economy.
Martin Kahanec is a professor of public policy at Hungary's Central European University where he specializes in labor economics and immigration. He said that migrants with similar backgrounds to Hungarians can more easily integrate but do not provide skills that are missing in the economy.
"Whereas migrants who come from distant cultures and regions and countries, they may have more difficulties to integrate (but) they also bring in skills which are new, which provide more dynamism, which make new economic opportunities."
He added that migrants with a more diverse skillset can help boost trade and business relations around the world, something the government says it has been working on for years.
