This Extended Migration Profile (2011) has been prepared in the framework of the “Building Migration Partnerships” initiative funded by the European Union’s Thematic Programme, which was implemented between January 2009 and June 2011. The overall objective of this initiative was to contribute to the implementation of the Joint Declaration agreed at the Prague Ministerial Conference "Building Migration Partnerships" (April 2009). This Extended Migration Profile has been elaborated on the basis of a template prepared by the European Commission. It contains different statistical and analytical information which aims to evaluate the overall migration situation in the country. The objective is to facilitate cooperation between countries in the field of migration management: on the one hand by providing information on the migration situation in the country and, on the other, by providing a sound empirical and statistical basis for policy planning and development.
