Diversification of labor migration flows

As reported earlier, German employers offered 50 thousand jobs for Uzbeks - officially, through the Agency for External Labor Migration. The agency also helps with German language courses before leaving.

Recently, Minister of Employment and Poverty Reduction Bekhzod Musayev also met with the Ambassador of Canada to Uzbekistan Alam Hemson to discuss the ways to establishing cooperation in the field of labor migration.

Current labor migration flows from Uzbekistan are mainly concentrated in a few nearby countries, in particular Russia and Kazakhstan, which account for the bulk of remittance inflows. Meanwhile, there is a gradual diversification of labor migration, as noted earlier by the Central Bank. In particular, the share of transfers from Russia decreased from 87% to 78%.
