Rehn: "The EU will benefit from Turkey's young, well-educated workforce"

Cultural resistance and the fear of integrating a large Muslim minority are leading the European Union to consider imposing restrictions on the free movement of Turkish workers when the country eventually joins the EU, said EU Commissioner for Enlargement Olli Rehn yesterday. Speaking to EurActiv.com, Rehn stated that while he believes the EU will "benefit from the youthful and rather well-educated Turkish labor force," some countries may view Turkey's EU accession differently. He added that as early as 2004, the commission had warned of the possibility of long transition periods and permanent safeguard clauses to avoid disturbances in the EU labor market.
