With a burgeoning economy, a recent World Cup win and reported growth of 0.8% (3.3% annually) recently some might be inclined to think that the Germans haven’t got much to worry about but this may not entirely prove to be true as certain specific skillsets seem to be missing within the country’s economy.
The biggest sectors of the German economy include manufacturing and the services sector but outside of those two areas many business heads are reporting a lack of the required skills to succeed in their area of business this includes many of the big cities such as capital Berlin. This poses the question, could Germany turn to immigration?
Since unification Germany has actively encouraged its image as a multi-cultural country and has previously turned to immigration to tackle issues with its ageing population and encouraged younger, skilled workers to consider relocating to Germany. This could be a tactic they try again with the relative success of previous attempts.
There has also been a lack of outside investment in the German economy and infrastructure which, although not affecting the buoyant state of the nation just yet, could spell problems in the future if not addressed soon and the Government is also looking at offering incentives to both foreign and home based investors to rectify this issue before it becomes a problem.
With the economy on the upswing after the 2008 economic downturn that hit Europe and being one of the strongest economies in the world looking to solidify their place in the world’s elite now may be a great time to consider emigrating to Germany!
