(ANSA) - Rome, September 19 - Permanent immigration into
Italy is decreasing while asylum applications are on the rise,
the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD)
said in a report presented in Rome on Wednesday
The report was discussed at a conference organized by the
National Council for Economics and Labor (CNEL) looking at
trends in international migration, especially in Italy.
The OECD noted that there was an increase in young
immigrants without work or study permits.
Italians emigrating to other OECD countries have risen to
approximately 78,000, up 6% between 2009 and 2010.
Asylum requests in Italy have tripled since 2009, placing
the country seventh among OSCE countries for refugee applicants.
Immigrants are harder hit by unemployment trends in
temporary positions, said the report, but in terms of long-term
contracts the rate of unemployment is comparable to Italian
nationals.
Three out of five immigrants in Italy have found work in an
emerging field, a higher proportion than in other OECD
countries, and also accounted for 28% of the increase in the
Italian workforce over the past decade.
However, 30% of young migrants work in less qualified
categories, about 50% higher than other OECD countries with the
exception of Spain and Greece.
Immigrants play a role in maintaining the size of the
Italian workforce, said the report.
Italy is one of the few OECD countries where the retired
population exceeds young people entering the workforce.
