Workshop 3 - developing external relations

30 May 2012

This Task Force meeting addressed the issue of developing external relations in the field of labour migration. Participants discussed the distribution of competences between the EU and its Member States, the existing tools and their efficiency in helping to enhance the integration of migrants into the EU labour market and how the EU and its Member States can plan for future needs and the mechanisms employed to address these needs in terms of facilitating migration from outside the EU.
