Considerable reductions in rates of net in-migration were experienced by Austria, Germany and Greece, the other three countries with relatively higher rates in the early 1990s. This was when they faced the main problems of refugees from war zones immediately after an initial upsurge in movement following the opening of borders during the early stages of transition in CEECs. The main changes were the transformation of Portugal and Ireland from being countries of net out-migration to being net in-migration countries.

The contention here is that rectifying those rules would lead to reduced pressure of so-called ‘bogus’ asylum claims. 38 Immigration, labour mobility and EU enlargement A guiding principle of the development of EU policy on immigration (and also the policy towards the free movement of labour during accession negotiations) has been that any policy has to reflect and respect the situation in the countries of origin as much as that within the existing EU. The differences in economic status of the candidate countries from that of the existing EU members are feared to imply an enormous continuing pressure for east–west migration that could be threatening to the economies of both the originating and the receiving regions.

Consequently, the major hope for industrial recovery lay in restructuring output to produce goods for the more sophisticated, high-income market in the EU, particularly neighbouring Germany. However, this required major inflows of physical capital that was not available domestically. The need to compete with existing producers in western Europe who possessed technical know-how, who had already built up complex international supply networks and who benefited from high levels of advertising and brand-name products necessitated the creation of links with Western corporations.
