The African Ambassadors labour summit was held on 24th of February in Berlin 2023 with the intention to lay the foundation for close cooperation between Germany and Africa, and open the door for dialogues on many other migration-related agendas. Here are some of the insights from the summit.

Which role should ambassadors from African countries based in Germany together with Diaspora communities in Germany play in providing a solution to the acute labour shortage in Germany?

Germany is struggling with an acute shortage of skilled workers. In order to ensure the security of social standards of the industrial country Germany and its competitiveness in the long term, Germany is now relying  on the immigration of skilled workers from other countries. The representatives of migrant civil society in Germany and the ambassadors from African countries can play an important bridge regarding creating a common framework with a win-win impact for all.
