Skilled & Educated Immigrants Move to Germany


According to statistics issued by the Organization for Economic Cooperation & Development, Germany was only second to the United States in the number of skilled and educated immigrants it received in 2012.  In 2012 Germany simplified its immigration procedures to encourage skilled and educated immigrants to move there and increase its working population.  Evidently, this is a result of a fairly stagnant growth rate in the country.  Frankfurt and Berlin have been cited as foreign-friendly cities.
