About us & Partnerships 

According to the IOM international labour migration is defined as the movement of people from one country to another for the purpose of employment. Today, an estimated 105 million persons are working in a country other than their country of birth.  Labour mobility has become a key feature of globalization and the global economy with migrant workers earning US$ 440 billion in 2011, and the World Bank estimating that more than $350 billion of that total was transferred to developing countries in the form of remittances. However, despite the efforts made to ensure the protection of migrant workers, many remain vulnerable and assume significant risks during the migration process.

When properly managed, labour migration has far-reaching potential for the migrants, their communities, the countries of origin and destination, and for employers. While job creation in the home country is the preferred option, demographic, social and economic factors are increasingly the drivers of migration. As a result, a growing number of both sending and receiving countries view international labour migration as an integral part of their national development and employment strategies. On one hand, countries of origin benefit from labour migration because it relieves unemployment pressures and contributes to development through remittances, knowledge transfer, and the creation of business and trade networks. On the other hand, for destination countries facing labour shortages, orderly and well-managed labour migration can lighten labour scarcity and facilitate mobility.

One of the initiatives INGRED is supporting is "Visa2Belgium" program. Promoting migration of its global citizens, aiding political refugees; offering support to students, family reunion programs, migration through labour (Blue Card) and alternatives offered through businesss or investment programs. 

To support this project a feasable commercial investment project wil be launched to initiate a selection and recruitment agency for bottleneck professions, with the ambition to recruit +1000 employee's in 2022-2023.
