High-skilled migrants total 13,000

Some 13,000 people have come to the Netherlands via the special scheme for highly-skilled migrants (kennismigranten), news agency ANP reports.

The scheme has been operational since October 2004. Most come from India, followed by the US, China and Japan.
The aim of the scheme is to make it easier for highly-educated people from outside the EU to work in the Netherlands.
