Pakistani parliamentarians visit Federal Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs

Parliamentary State Secretary at the Federal Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs Anette Kramme welcomed a high-ranking delegation from the Senate of Pakistan on 17 October 2019.

The six-member delegation was led by Senator Mushahid H. Sayed. The discussion focused on the new regulations of the Skilled Immigration Act.

Anette Kramme explained the opportunities offered by the legislation and the possibilities for regulated immigration of qualified workers to Germany. The senators welcomed the new legislation as an attractive opportunity for qualified young people from Pakistan to find new career prospects. There was agreement that the key to successful integration was learning German.

The Senate of Pakistan is the upper house of its parliament, and its role is comparable to that of the German Bundesrat.
