Islanders are all increasingly concerned at the level of immigration and the
knock on effects it has on infrastructure. No one can deny the benefits of
individuals with fresh ideas and specialist skills being brought into the Island.
But uncontrolled immigration is extremely worrying. Finding the right balance
may be a challenge. All sectors contribute to our economy, but in the coming
years, we must make best use of the talent available on Island, whilst at the
same time supporting the non-financial sector who wish to grow their business
and need off-island recruitment.
Jersey must review the current policy and consider better controls.
