Astana. April 22. KazTAG - Kazakhstani employers may attract a foreign specialist, but the Government will decide whether he is needed for the country, said Tamara Duisenova, Minister of Labor and Social Protection.

"There is a quota for attraction of foreign workforce today, where the application is made by an employer pointing which specialists he needs. Taking in account economy diversification, the program of accelerated industrial innovational development, we are considering one more approach - to define staff deficit in the country, and attract foreign migrants of these professions. But a foreigner must prove that he has qualifications on those professions that we defined," she said.

She added earlier the Ministry repeatedly informed that there is internal migration, resettlement and increase of mobility.

"It happens in voluntary order. If citizens of Kazakhstan move from one region to another they get social package, but there was a condition in case of application from an employer," she said.

Currently the Ministry is defining regions facing deficit of labor resources.

"Kazakhstani people may resettle from the depressed districts. Equally with repatriates they will get social package," she said.
