Prime Minister Manmohan Singh left for India on Saturday after attending the G20 Summit where he said the movement of labour should be free across nations without restrictions as it can otherwise stifle growth.
"International labour mobility in high end skills has become an important
aspect of global integration across countries," the Prime Minister said on Friday.
"Pending the evolution of international agreements in this area, we must do whatever we can to avoid new restrictive measures, which can stifle a sector that can contribute to global growth in the years ahead," he added.
The G20 Summit ended on Friday with a declaration that while countries will not prolong the exit of fiscal stimulus, it will be done in a calibrated way and clearly communicated in a bid to prevent volatility in currency markets.
