  • Joint meeting - European Economic and Social Committee (EESC), VMA building, room VMA 1, 2 rue van Maerlant, 1040 Brussels, Belgium, Belgium

    This event was organised by the LMO and IMI together with the European Commission, in the context of the revision of the Blue Card directive.

    The EU Blue Card Directive was adopted in 2009 to facilitate the admission and mobility of highly qualified migrants and their family members. Evaluations of the Blue Card's implementation identified a number of issues that may negatively affect the effectiveness of the Blue Card and hamper the attractiveness of the EU in the global competition for highly skilled workers. Therefore, the European Commission intends to present a proposal for a revised Directive in March 2016, as part of a wider package of measures on migration.

    The aim of the workshop was to discuss the results of the public consultation that has recently been carried out on this subject. The event was an occasion for participants to express their views on the use of the Blue Card in their countries and on possible improvements of the scheme. The discussions will contribute to European institutions current work on legal migration
