MEA and a visitor to Finland sign a migration agreement Tuula Haatainen is the minister of employment.
The Finnish Minister of Economic Affairs and Employment, Tuula Haatainen, stated this during a visit to India to promote Finland as a place where Indians can find employment due to a severe shortage of skilled labour. By 2030, Finland’s government plans to double the number of work immigrants entering the country and triple the number of international student placements. In particular, Ms. Haatainen stated that Finland hopes to draw nurses from India and workers in the technology and information and communications technology (ICT) sectors. She signed a “joint declaration of intent on migration and mobility” with Minister of State for External Affairs V. Muraleedharan. The Minister clarified that while her administration aims to make it easier for workers to migrate, a route to citizenship may not yet be available.
We can see that India has the kind of professional talent that Finland needs. We need a larger workforce, more talent, professionals, and skilled workers. “I see that it is good for both sides, that people go abroad, and also earn and study there,” Ms. Haatainen said in an interview with The Hindu.
