'Businesses will welcome these reforms as a good first move'

The CBI has responded to reported changes to the non-EU migration visa cap for skilled workers.

Matthew Fell, CBI Chief UK Policy Director, said:

“If these changes are as reported, businesses will welcome these reforms as a good first move. International skills and talent are a core foundation of the Global Britain employers want to help build.  

“A successful migration system should focus on people’s contribution to the UK economy and society, not numbers. Until our immigration system is reformed to reflect this, including scrapping the net migration target, businesses will continue to struggle to get the people they need to create jobs and growth.”
