The National Bank of Ukraine expects that in 2019 the intensity of labor migration from Ukraine to Poland will significantly decrease. This is stated in the NBU inflation report for October, reports Ukrainska Pravda.
The document notes that the number of Ukrainian workers in Poland has increased dramatically since 2013 and in recent years work in the neighboring country was attractive for Ukrainians because of its territorial proximity (for 52.0 % of respondents) and high wages (51.3 %). According to the National Bank, for 2015, the average net income of a Ukrainian worker in Poland was higher than income in Ukraine by $ 390, and in the construction industry by $ 573. The financial department clarifies that, in general, a decrease in the intensity of labor migration from Ukraine to Poland is expected.
