The economic contributions of international migrants



Young, connected, entrepreneurial and skilled: migrants from Africa, China, India and the Philippines are making a positive impact on the countries they’ve settled in.

Research from Western Union and the Economist Intelligence Unit found that Nigerians Americans, for example, are overrepresented in sectors such as law, business and investment banking.

China’s millennial migrants are helping countries in Europe and the U.S. build cultural and trade links with their homeland. A third of immigrant-founded startups in the U.S. have an Indian founder. And a third of Filipino workers in the U.K. work in healthcare services.

ImpactAlpha has rounded up research on the contributions of migrants here and here.
