Alternatively, brain drain is defined as the emigration or migration of talented people with education and skills from developing or underdeveloped countries to developed countries.
Why is this not okay?
When young people who have opportunities and qualifications move from Ukraine, it discourages investors from investing in the country's development. This affects the country's economic and innovative competitiveness.
Loss of investment
The migration of young people leads to a loss of the labor force in Ukraine, especially if they have qualifications that are difficult to replace. This significantly worsens the economic situation and the state of employment in the country.
Loss of employees
Youth migration worsens the demographic situation in the country, reduces the number of births and increases the aging of the population. This affects public policy, the pension system and other social problems in the country.
Demographic problems
Migration leads to the loss of Ukraine's human potential, a decrease in the level of education and professional training of the population, as well as a decrease in cultural and intellectual diversity.
