The question about letting qualified migrants enter Denmark has been a hot topic politically – cf. the latest report of the Economic Council. The Confederation of Danish Industries is calling for easier access to Denmark and of cause, the Danish People’s Party is against it.
One solution could be to look to Microsoft which has decamped some of its activities to Canada. According to Business Week, the corporation unsuccessfully tried to persuade legislators to ease immigration restrictions and when that approach failed, the next step was this:
So in September, Microsoft took matters into its own hands. It opened an office in Richmond, B.C., a polyglot Vancouver suburb, where it hopes to place hundreds of workers unable to obtain visas a few miles south in the U.S. The office won’t be filled only with those who can’t get visas. But for many, it’s akin to a refugee camp, except these displaced persons aren’t fleeing the U.S. They’re trying to get in.
Maybe placing or expanding branches in the Lund-Malm÷ area could be a similar solution for some Danish companies?
