Poland could soon witness a large influx of Indian workers, particularly in the construction sector, after the two countries sign a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to streamline labour migration to the East European country.

This was decided at a meeting held here Wednesday between Minister for Overseas Indian Affairs Vayalar Ravi and Poland’s Minister for Labour and Social Policy Anna Kalata.

Addressing a press conference after the meeting, Ravi said, “We proposed to sign an MoU with Poland and a note is being circulated in this regard… The MoU will streamline migration of labour from India to Poland to work in the construction, agriculture and service sectors in that country.”

As of now, there are only around 3,000 Indians employed across various sectors in Poland but this number is expected to get significant boost once the MoU is signed. The Polish minister has taken the initiative to promote recruitment of Indian workers in her country.

Stating that her country is facing an acute labour shortage, Kalata said, “We have noticed severe discrepancies in our labour market. Around 800,000 Polish workers have left to work in other countries in the EU (European Union).”

“The need for labour is more so in the construction sector as we are going to build a number of stadiums for the Euro 2012 football championship,” the visiting minister added.

Poland, along with Ukraine, will play joint hosts to football’s second biggest event in 2012.

She also said that Poland is on a quick growth path and hence there is an urgent need for skilled manpower. “In the first quarter of this year, our economy grew by 7.4 percent.”

The proposed MoU will also facilitate Indian companies to invest or get into partnership with companies in Poland in various sectors.

To a question as to whether Poland was seeking investment especially from Indian IT companies, an official from the Polish minister’s delegation said, “IT is one of the fastest growing sectors in Poland. We don’t have to especially invite them (Indian IT companies). They very well know where the green is.”

To a question as to whether India will be signing a social security agreement with Poland similar to the one that was signed with Belgium last year, Ravi said, “This will be an MoU for streamlining labour migration, but yes, we can go on and sign a social security agreement later.”

TOM GOLDMAN: The NBA lockout is starting under a cloud of deep pessimism. Heres why. Yes, NBA owners want to stop the bleeding nearly three quarters of the teams lost money this year, they say a total of more than $300 million. But also, they want to change the structure of how players are paid. By significantly cutting the percentage of league revenues that goes to players currently 57 per cent and by locking in a mechanism to keep the salaries down. A hard cap on salaries is non negotiable, say the players. They dont believe they should bear the brunt of the owners losses, when the owners, they say, have made bad business decisions. So, as commissioner David Stern said Cheap china Jerseys yesterday, theres a huge philosophical divide.The first two things to know about bellwethers is that there’s no letter “a” in the word, and bellwethers don’t have anything to do with predicting the weather.

And you talked about that that you wanted to you always wanted to Cheap NFL Jerseys China win, but you wanted to win the right way. There are those who do feel that there’s too much public cheap football jerseys profession of faith in sports. And they feel that it’s somewhat, in a diverse country like this, that maybe it’s exclusionary, that it kind of leaves some people out. And I would like to ask if you could speak on that, if you ever thought about that?
