Consul General Achim Burkart said that signing the memorandum of understanding with Kerala is a historic event.
More than 10,000 job opportunities are expected to come up for nurses in Germany in the post-Covid scenario, he said.
The MoU, he said, was part of the efforts of the government to find new destinations of migration for Keralites other than the traditional hubs against the backdrop of the changes in the global employment scenario. The MoU has opened the way for recruitment to Germany, one of the most powerful and industrialised countries in the world, he said.
The CM said ‘Triple Win’ is reckoned as the first step towards tapping the possibilities of migration to European countries. The project would help the recruiters to hire the best nursing professionals.
