On 18 September, the Migration Advisory Committee (MAC) released its report on 'The Impact of EEA migration in the UK' which called for an end to free movement from the European Union after Brexit and recommends that the UK embrace a Canada-style system.
Duncan Edwards, CEO, BritishAmerican Business, released a formal statement on the MAC report. "We welcome the MAC's final report on UK immigration and the assessment it makes on how the UK can build its post-Brexit migration system." Additionally, he commented on the benefits high-skilled workers bring to the UK economy, and stressed the importance of a flexible migration system that is able to accommodate the needs of different sectors.
BAB has been an active advisor to the UK Government on how best to attract the talent that UK-based businesses need
, and we will work to continue this relationship as the Government maps out how their post-Brexit migration system can maintain the UK's status as an attractive destination for foreign talent.
