Has any work been done on the cost of importing graduate skilled people into the Island since 2012 to fill jobs, in terms of cost of housing, (need to build more homes, increase in rental cost due to shortages), educating the children of those people, and the cost of providing healthcare?
If so, what are the costs?
Work is ongoing to establish the full benefit and cost to the economy and to the wider community of all those who come to work and live in Jersey.
Further information about our planned expenditure and government plans for dealing with our changing demographics is outlined in the following documents:
