    In contemporary era, due to highly populated countries with undeveloped infrastructures, numerous of health care professionals and tutors are relocating to developed countries for better living. As a result this is causing talent scarcity and economy loss by migration of skilled people from unprogressive countries to industrialized countries.

    The foremost reason is that lots of ambitious professionals wants to pursue their work and research in developed countries due to infrastructure provided and tools available. Work life balance is very high in those places with lots of benefits like wages, education and even healthcare side. In calculation also it’s proved that life span of the people is high in developed countries as great facilities provided. Due to shortage of skilled people, country is becoming poorer as there is no development happening and economy is getting plummet.

    However, there are various solutions for these problems by creating good institutes which can providing research and work infrastructure so that medical practioners and educators get good exposure in their fields. Government should mandate basic salary for professionals with scholarship to pursue their studies in the same country with good incentives. Moreover, authority should collaborate with developed countries for short time visit so that professionals get chance to learn and bring new skills to home country. All this will result in increase in economy and good relationships with foreign countries as brain-drain will not happen for underdeveloped. For example, Srilanka’s situation is not hidden from the world as they are struggling for even leaving due to governments’ bad decision.

    In conclusion, government has really need to work hard for keeping skilled people and retaining aspiring youth from migration to different countries by providing great employment opportunities and lucrative incentives.

    Developed countries can attract a lot of talent across the globe, because of the multiple benefits they offer like competitive pay scale, work-life balance, higher quality of education and so on. This has led to a wave of emigration of skilled professionals like doctors and teachers in poor countries which has caused major problems like increased skill demand, expensive professional fees, rising inflation and decreased quality services. However, government intervention with reforms in policies of taxation, education, salary structure can help in retaining domestic talent.

    The foremost problems caused by lack of doctors and teachers in poor countries is that a lot of ailing people will be unattended and left for God’s grace.

    As doctors and teachers emigrate, prices of these professional services will soar, thus pushing the mass towards poverty and leading to increased lead time for poor countries to recover and progress on the path of development.

    Brazil, which is one of the largest hubs for graduate of doctors and teachers, had one doctor for 5000 citizen which is one of the lowest ratios. Professionals were requested from other countries to support them and ensure medical safety.

    However, possible solutions to these problems would be robust government policies and education reforms.

    Government policies like subsidizing income tax for certain professions, providing interest free loans to setup hospitals, schools in the country will help curb emigration.

    Also, providing higher education scholarships and job placements in domestic companies will help professionals stay in their birthplace.

    The United States is a perfect example on how to retain domestic talent. With policies like, minimum wage , compulsory domestic services and free education has helped build a good workforce.

    To conclude, professionals leaving poor countries for better prospects is a big concern as it can impact poor country’s economy through rising inflation and resource scarcity. These can be controlled through various government initiatives and education reforms.

    The burning issue faced by under-developed countries is the upsurge in the migration of skilled workers in the search for a better lifestyle. The significant impact of this is on the young generation who remain untrained and leads to the lack of specialists in the vicinity. However, specific measures could come to the rescue like providing proper opportunities and imposing strict migration policies.

    First and foremost, it is intuitively obvious that due to this brain drain, the upcoming generation would surely not have enough chances to learn from experts. Nonetheless, people have to travel far distances in order to be benefitted from skilled professionals such as doctors. There is ample evidence about how individuals from small towns have to move to metropolitan cities for being treated by certain specialized doctors. Thus, it is plausible that this movement of skilled professionals shall be a great loss to the natives.

    However, some specific measures can help out to solve this burning issue like providing good civic amenities eventually leading to a settled life, and imposing high taxes to restrict immigration. To add, governmental organizations should work on setting laws and regulations which can support a person’s living in the local land, resulting in reduced migration. Hence, it is intro-controvertible that the described steps could solve the issue of migration to a certain extent.

    To conclude, many professionals like doctors, architects, teachers and so on, prefer to move to a richer country in order to achieve a well-settled life. This decision has many associated problems which the natives suffer. Nonetheless, government and other organizations should come together to mitigate this challenge.

    Developed countries have become host to talented and meritorious professionals leaving behind

    shortage of skilled people in their own countries. However, certain steps can be taken by the Government

    to provide scholarships and better opportunities to encourage in-house employment.

    Firstly, lack of subject expertise workforce is seen due to migration patterns. Such poor or developing countries

    may lead to untrained future generation. One of the examples is in many cities of India ratio of teacher

    to student has become 1:100 today. Consequently, it also causes shortage of facilities like quality education and medicals

    in many cities. Secondly, as many skilled labor is moving to foreign nation for better opportunities,

    countries economy can take a big hit in coming future.

    However certain steps can be taken to mitigate the relocation of expert labors by providing sponsorships on higher

    qualifications for the outperforming people. Also such professionals can be encouraged by providing satisfactory

    wages. In addition, different governing bodies also can plan on imposing higher taxes or applying restriction on

    count of people emigrating every year. For example, Singapore country always prefers local resources over foreigners

    for any job openings and also impose heavy charges for allocating emigration work visas.

    In conclusion , in order to encourage different professionals like doctors, nurses, tutors, IT professionals to

    stick to their own origin country, government should create valued workplaces for them with good payment.

    Additionally learn from different countries to impose or modify emigration laws to reduce relocation of skilled

    labor to foreign locations and save the countries economy from drowning.

    In today’s era, it’s a fact that a lot of individuals such as doctors, teachers and engineers are moving towards developed countries. It is because there, they will get more job opportunities, more advance training compared to a poor or underdeveloped countries and the number is increasing day by day. It is a huge problem and if they can’t control this migration, in near future, it will cause a huge population crisis in both developed countries as well as underdeveloped countries.

    There are a lot of reasons behind this problem of leaving the country. One of the main reasons is the high pay rates. In a developed country, the salary is so high compared to their own country, like if we compare India with United Kingdom, the salary an individual get in UK is a lot of higher that in India because of the difference in currency. 1 pound in UK means 97 INR. Here we can clearly see the difference which is huge. Another major problem is the quality of education. In the developed countries the quality of education is far better than the underdeveloped countries. For example, if we check the QS world ranking for engineering and technology, we will not find any Indian university within top 100 in 2023. Only three universities are there in top 200.

    India is developing country, but if we try to compare it with the western countries, then we will get to know how much underdeveloped we are. To solve this immigration problem, we must overhaul everything. First, we need to overhaul the education sector, to do this we can take suggestions from different educationist from the developed countries. We should appoint someone on the top of the education sector, who have an brief idea about this. Because education is the basic need of a country and if we can’t solve this problem, then it will be very difficult to change this problem.

    Another main issue is the job crisis, the job sector is not good in the underdeveloped countries. A lot of graduates are being unemployed in those poor countries, because they don’t have proper jobs. So, they are moving to those developing countries so that get can some jobs with a good salary.

    People don’t want to leave their home country but rather than we can say, they are being forced to leave their country because of the unemployment and pay scale. It can be solved by providing more jobs with an attractive salary. Otherwise, as I said before, soon we may see a population crisis.

    In today’s scenario lot of employees in the profession of doctor and teacher are fleeing from their deprived country to richer nations because of better salary and lifestyle. This situation have led to scarcity of skilled employees and impacting the economy, however these problem can be solved by providing attractive wages and doing collaborations with international bodies

    To begin with, the decline in the percentage of well trained employees is affecting the country from top to grass root level. Migration can be seen due to high salary packages and better job benefits, especially in Medical and Education sectors. It is directly affecting the literacy and medical infrastructure of country. In addition, this practice is impacting economy and worsening it. The contribution by these professionals in tax and revenue is decreasing drastically, moreover pushing the service sector a bit behind. For instance, my school friend after completing his medical practice went to Europe for job because of lucrative earning; however there has been scarcity of doctors in our country.

    Now talking about the solutions, giving a good salary to people of these fields can convince them to work at home country; furthermore, providing them with extra benefits and bonus can enhance their job lifestyle. Meanwhile, collaboration with foreign organization will definitely enrich the opportunities to work on the same projects and job profiles for which they are leaving the country. This will give them a job satisfaction; moreover they will also contribute to the nation. For example, our government have collaborated and loosen the policies which have forced a lot of big multinational companies such as Microsoft, Google, Apple have to establish their offices in India.

    In conclusion, fleeing of doctors and teacher is impacting our economy and reducing their number, but collaboration with foreign institutions and improving their wage can help in stopping the migration of these professionals. In my opinion one should always contribute in building of the nation.

    There is an increase in the migration of working professionals from their poor countries to rich countries. This essay discusses the problems such as the shortage of skilled professionals, along with that it has an adverse impact on the country’s economy. These problems can be averted by taking proper measures to generate employment opportunities and by enacting strict migration policies.

    Firstly, the migration of skilled workforce from poor countries has been affecting the nation in several factors, such as a reduction in skilled workers and a negative impact on the country’s revenue. Companies in economically weaker nations are shutting down because they couldn’t find skilled labour which matches their requirements due to the migration of talents. As a result, the closing down of factories has a cascading effect on the country’s economy. The government couldn’t manage their expenditures and investment in various sectors for development due to fewer taxes paid by firms.

    However, the government can take proactive measures to avert a financial crisis by generating employment opportunities. Governments can simplify the process of setting up new companies and also support them in ease of doing business, which in turn will result in the generation of more employment opportunities. In addition, the government can enact minimum wages and strict migration policies by asking them to serve the nation or to work in local companies for at least a minimum of years after pursuing their education. The minimum wage policy will provide a morale boost for workers to work in their native countries since it will entice them to work here if they are not finding any big deviation in the pay scale between their countries and rich nations.

    In conclusion, the Migration of skilled labour to richer nations due to lucrative wages and promising careers results in brain drain and shortage of skilled people. Consequently, it wreaks havoc country’s economy. It can be alleviated by providing incentives and subsidies in addition to streamlining the process of ease of doing business, which results in generating more job opportunities.

    In recent times, highly skilled workers are migrating to richer nations owing to various reasons. This movement will aggravate problems such as skill scarcity and economic loss to their native country. Providing better infrastructure and offering scholarships to pursue higher studies for advancement in their career are some ways to retain the talent.

    Firstly, the main problem is due to brain drain in poor countries in the areas such as research, medicine and education. This will deteriorate the country’s economy and the living conditions for individuals. Furthermore, owing to a lack of skilled professionals, their citizens struggle to get a higher level of education and health services. For instance, a recent study in Norway proved that scientists were not able to conclude research on an emerging virus on account of a shortage of virologists in their country. Secondly, the skilled workforce were also paid lesser salaries compared to their counterparts in developed nations. Hence, this also made them to look for highly paid jobs in wealthier nations. Therefore Government should act immediately to address this problem at the earliest to overcome the shortage of skilled people in key areas.

    One possible solution is to provide good wages and scholarships to skilled workers in their respective fields. For instance, interns and junior professionals can be provided training for advancement in their careers along with highly paid job offers from reputed institutions. This will inspire them to serve for their native country and also be beneficial for the citizens of the country in terms of services. Another possible solution is to provide better infrastructure in order to pursue their higher studies in their respective fields by networking with international bodies.

    In conclusion, if given the financial support and living conditions to the skilled professionals, they would not immigrate to the more economically developed nations.

    Foreign companies gives much opportunities to working professionals such as doctors and teachers.These days,there has been a trend of migration of people from their home country to a more developed nation as they value their skill well.The movement of working professionals has lead to many problems like brain drain,like professionals leaving their parents alone.There can be a few solutions to it like giving better opportunities,good wages,good quality of life.

    The relocating of experts from one destination to another has many consequences like leaving their parents alone,brain drain.For example,in the time of COVID-19 the professionals who had left their families alone had faced a very tough time as in the case of medical emergency no one was with them to take care of them.Futhermore,there were also some instances when their childrens didn’t attended their parents funeral as they were very far from them and it was impossible to reach their home country due to lockdown imposed in the wake of covid restrictions.

    To overcome this problem there a a few solutions to it. Firstly,their home companies should value their skills well and moreover they should pay them good wages so that they don’t have to shift to a new place.For example,If a person sitting in his home town gets good quality of life,good work balance why will he think of moving to a new place.Secondly,goverment should make good policies for foreign companies so they can start their business in each and every country so that less people have to left their country for working.

    To recapitulate,goverment should make some laws for companies to give fix salaries to professionals according to their education and also good work balance life to stop the trend of relocating of working professionals from their home country.

    Nowadays a significant quantity of people having professional skills ,such as doctors and teachers ,are passionate to leave their own country and are shifting to developed nations in search of greener pastures. This situation of migration of so many professionals is causing problems for both developed and developing countries.in this essay I will discuss what are the problems arising due to such migration and what are possible remedies to overcome such situation.

    Fisrtly,due to huge number of professional migrants to developed countries triggers scenario of unemployment and over competition for professionals who are natives to developed countries.For instance,a mammoth number of IT professionals from India left India and reached US for high emoluments and better working conditions.This situation has caused lot of anger and rebel in native citizens as they have limited job opportunities now.

    secondly, the developing nations whose professionals with polished skill sets are going out ,face lack of skilled doctors, engineers and teachers. This causes lowering of quality and services of our education and medical system.

    All causes and effects considered, in my opinion government should optimize the number of movements of professionals to other countries and create better opportunities of employment prospects and reward system so that the skilled professional feels more recognized and appreciated.

    The foremost problems caused by increasing number of professionals displacing are unemployment, overcompetetion,in developed countries and lowering of quality of education and medical system in developing countries. Due to huge number of professional migrants to developed countries, it triggers scenario of unemployment and over competition for professionals who are natives to developed countries.For instance,a mammoth number of IT professionals from India left India and reached US for high emoluments and better working conditions.

Furthermore, better opportunities for professionals in own country will give them hope to get better recognition and reward thereby discouraging them to move out.

    To conclude,more and more migration of skilled manpower from developing countries to developed countries poses serious problems.regulating the movement of such people and rewarding and recognizing them in their own country could be a possible solution.
