Migration of people to different regions within the country is often resisted by the local inhabitants. What are some of the contributions that the migrants could make to the local economy?
Migrants contribute greatly towards the economy of the state where they are working.
They perform useful work at lower wages and make up a large proportion of the service sector.
The goods and services provided by them are counted in the GDP.
Migrants bring new skills and techniques that can be adapted to suit local conditions.
Migrant workers also pay taxes and thus contribute to economic growth of their host region.
