MOSCOW, March 21 (Itar-Tass) – Unsolved visa problems are one of the barriers to move human capital assets to the EU countries from Russia, Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said on Thursday.
Speaking at conference devoted to Russia-EU partnership, Medvedev said, “Unfortunately, we can’t solve the visa problem. This is one of the barriers to move human capital assets. It hampers entrepreneurship and scientific and cultural contacts.”
Medvedev said unprecedented mobility in the modern world, especially among businessmen and the youth, “requires the abolition of visas”.
