MOSCOW, December 9 (Itar-Tass) —— Russia needs more highly-qualified foreign engineers, the Russian Ministry of Health and Social Development said in a release on Friday.
In 2012, the ministry will expand the list of professions of foreigners, which are outside the quota system. The list will be supplemented by six more professions, namely, welding engineer, design engineer, electrical engineer, drilling engineer, start-up and testing engineer, and production engineer.
The list is to be expanded “over the need in Russia for highly-qualified professionals who can organize new production lines, use new technologies, and operate state-of-the-art, often imported, equipment,” the ministry said.
The ministry has been approving such lists of professions since 2008. The 2012 list will include 41 professions, primarily engineering ones. The list will soon be submitted to the ministry of economic development.
According the Federal Migration Service, a total of 17,303 foreign specialists, whose professions are not subject to quotas, came to Russia in 2011.
