Migrants Do Well in Life

Migration is basically the overseas movement of people from their native, not-too-developed country to a developed, affluent country. It can be either on a temporary basis, or a permanent basis. The high increase in the global mobility enables an ever-growing number of people to reach distant countries or continent rather easily.

Migrants normally do well in life, it’s only a very small percentage of the migrants who really fail to make some progress, or have to return to their native country without gaining anything substantial.  Some of the favorite and the widely preferred immigration destinations–such as the UK, Canada, the US, Denmark, Australia, etc–always remain the countries with a high standard of living, economic compatibility, and prosperity, and attract the migrants no end (justifiably so).
Since ages, due to the various reasons, people have been migrating on a large scale. The reasons can vary depending on individual circumstances. But whatever could be the reason, the fact remains the same: every migrant is essentially looking for a prosperous, economically stable and socially secure future–not only for himself, but also his loved ones.

It is also clear that the process of migration is, by and large, beneficial. Migrants usually do well in life, provided their rights are well protected, and they are employed as per their capability, and much more importantly, paid accordingly overseas. Post migration, there are various aspects that bring shine in the life of both the involved parties, i.e., the migrants, and the host country. Some of the beneficial factors are as follow:-

Migrants, along with them, bring valuable knowledge and gain knowledge from the foreign country. They fulfill the requirement of manpower in return of good pay package and social benefits. At times, they are exposed to some of the finest professional opportunities which perhaps they may never have got back home.

Migrants, along with them, also bring diversity. To put it in simple words, different cultures and ethics come under one umbrella, and interact at the same platform. Diversity is what most people get pleasure from. Diversity brings the world a lot closer, due to new cultural experiences in terms of food, culture, language, and festivals.

Migrants also encourage and inspire business. Since decades, they have shown to be highly resourceful, in terms of their settlement and survival in foreign environment with almost no financial or social capital. They are able to use their human capital successfully, and set up fruitful business ventures.

Migrants maintain transnational connections globally. The world is growing to be more competitive, cities benefit when its resources come from all practically over the world. Migrants connect the globe easily, and use their transnational social network to strengthen their local socio-economic activities. One can imagine if a city caters to these transnational connections and eventually becomes a hub in the transnational migrants’ social web, then it will certainly take a lead on the transnational ladder of competitiveness and progress.

Migrants invest heavily; they send tremendous amounts of capital to their native countries. Their commitment, connected to their transnational ties, translates itself into a significant investment in developing countries, and eventually may alter the socio-economic structure which may eventually benefit almost everyone.

In today’s highly competitive world, every individual wants to earn and get employed as per his specific qualifications and professional capability. When a person does not get something as per his requirements, he is hardly left with any choice but to migrate abroad to, say, Canada, Australia, and/or Denmark.

However, it is also a fact that most people migrating regard this step as only a temporary change in their lives. And they leave their country in the hope of returning one day. Many of them dream of earning enough money abroad to enable them to set up their own small business in the native country.
