Firms slightly mollified on U.K imm福彩3d2020288太湖钓叟字谜 igrationLONDON – The Japanese business community in Britain gave a guarded welcome Thursday to plans for an annual limit on immigration.On Tuesday, Britain announced it will introduce in April an annual limit of 21,700 work permits for skilled graduates coming from outside the European Union, referred to as tier one and two.But intracorporate transfers, or senior staff transferred to British operations from overseas head offices, will be excluded from the cap as long as they earn a minimum of £40,000 (¥5.28 million) a year and are coming for more than 12 months.The Japanese Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Britain said it welcomed the announcement to exclude intracorporate transfers but is concerned that putting a ceiling on non-EU skilled workers could impact firms.“The JCCI welcomes the U.K. government’s decision . . . to keep ICTs outside the cap on non-EU migration,” chamber spokesman Patrick Macartney said. “We believe that, as for Japanese businesses established in the U.K., the decision reflects the important and positive contribution that they make to the U.K. economy and employment.“For such Japanese businesses, the majority of ICTs lasting longer than 12 months are above the new salary threshold of £40,000.“Nevertheless, the changes are still likely to have some negative impact on the operations of Japanese companies there, especially with the new restrictions on other tier one and two routes, complicating the process of recruitment, and the JCCI remains concerned that the new system may have an impact on new investment decisions.“The JCCI and its member companies will need to monitor closely the details of the new system as it is developed.”Japanese firms are concerned the new cap will make it harder to recruit skilled people, such as engineers, from outside the European Union for their British operations.Some have already expressed frustration at an interim cap on immigration that has meant applications for work permits being denied.Under the new scheme, Britain plans to reduce annual net migration from hundreds of thousands to tens of thousands by 2015.TwitterFacebookLinkedInGET THE BEST OF THE JAPAN TIMESIN FIVE EASY PIECES WITH TAKE 5Mail the editorError ReportRepublishingCommenting PolicyJOIN THE CONVERSATIONLATEST BUSINESS STORIESWorkplace equality 'decades away' in Britain as men dominate top jobsEquality for women at work is decades away in Britain, according to a study released Monday that found just 6 percent of chief executives at leading companies are female, with representation in som...Tsai's election victory set to bolster Taiwan's buoyant marketsA winning run for Taiwan's financial markets is set to be reinforced by Saturday's landslide election victory for President Tsai Ing-wen.That's the view of market watchers and analysts, with th...Ex-drug company execs face reckoning in opioid bribery caseThe founder and former top employees of a pharmaceutical company are facing a reckoning for their role in a bribery scheme that prosecutors say boosted sales of a powerful, highly addictive painkil...
