The 11th ASEM Conference of Directors-General of Immigration and Management of Migratory Flows took place on 30-31 October 2012 in Nicosia, during the Cyprus Presidency. The conference is a relevant forum for exchange of views and experiences between EU and Asian countries on migration-related issues.
The focus point of the conference is in line with the increased emphasis given on mobility by the EU’s renewed Global Approach to Migration and Mobility. Labour migration is an important issue of high interest to both EU and Asian countries. Economic growth, labour market needs and securing and improving prosperity, welfare and well-being are issues of great concern in both continents. An important question in light of these considerations is how well-managed migration and improved possibilities for mobility can contribute to vitality and competitiveness of both EU and Asian countries.
