Perhaps it's time to stop using the term 'brain drain' when speaking about migration of skilled labor… here's why, with insights from @jhaushofer and a school friend from Zambia
Migration brain drain: Not just a negative trend?
The movement of highly skilled labor from developing countries to richer ones is largely seen as a negative trend....
@AsthanaRoli @AstrupUN @NoshadiSara @YuUnfpa Heard about the new carpet shop… time to book flights!

Policymakers would do well to heed the dictum of a former RBI Governor, who never tired of reiterating that ‘containing the build up of price pressures is the best anti-poverty programme’ as the poor ‘have no hedge against inflation’ - @the_hindu editorial

Inflation disproportionately affects the economically weaker sections

Delighted to join Twitter as @WorldBank VP for Europe and Central Asia. I’ll be discussing our response to development issues in the region during these challenging times, including #HumanCapital, #PrivateSector Development, #GreenTransition, and strengthening #Institutions.
The old doors of Saudi Arabia are known for their rich decoration. Inspired by nature, they represent the culture & deep roots of the central Saudi region. Decorated doors were an essential part of family homes & a focal point for guests
A thread on the art of Saudi doors…
Salom! I'm an artist who mostly focuses on Central Asia and today is my bday. The best present for artists is a retweet of their works!
Thank you 💙💙💙

@AsthanaRoli @AstrupUN @UZAmbassador @Navbahor @TUmarov @jmurtazashvili Sounds good. But only if you recant your totally false statement that there exists any “kitsch” in Ybad! It’s all treasure. 100%. 😁
@AsthanaRoli @AstrupUN @UZAmbassador @Navbahor @TUmarov @jmurtazashvili I left a piece of myself at Ybad. And there it will remain forever. 🥲
@UZAmbassador @vinnynagaraj Oh yes, same here. The entire process is so painful. Even the registration of residence at a mahalla was smoother!
@Jordanova_An @UZAmbassador Propiska is one of their best reforms. I love e-mehmon. If only #UZIMEI could be as effortless as that.
Most likely the post office won’t be able to help you as you’re a chet el mexmon. You get the red carpet - a visit to #UZIMEI HQ. @nikmccaren and I are thinking of publishing a how to find it guide.
@vinnynagaraj Yes please to this! My phone hasn't worked since November because although I've been back twice since then, I don't have time to go to the Post Office and sort it out during working hours.
End of my six-monthly #UZIMEI thread 🙂
Ok, I could go on. But a big kudos to @nikmccaren, @davletovuz and the other bloggers for continuing to make the case for the reform of #UZIMEI. #Uzbekistan's economic reform journey is impressive, but #UZIMEI stands out as a policy standing in the way of further progress.
And needless to say, it hurts Uzbekistan's digital ambitions. Mobile phones are instruments of power for the reforms and for innovation. GDP will be better off when the "fruit" of these devices--more trade, higher exports, greater innovation--is taxed instead of the simple phone.
