He found positive association between a country’s development level and both measures of migration – the remittances’ share of GDP and foreign-born population share. In his research, migration was assumed to be exogenous. Park and Hewings (2009) examined immigration’s impact on regional and national GDP using a simulation model. Their results showed that immigration’s negative effects on wage and capital/labor ratio and positive effects on national and regional GDP will diminish over time. This study shed light on the time frame of the examination of immigration’s economic impact and indicated that immigration’s negative and positive impacts may both be limited to a certain period of time and is closely related to the demographic structure of immigration.
For example, Europe is facing some job issues for international people as well as domestic people, China, India has good opportunities, Australia, Canada has good market for mining, US, Japan for technology, France for Aerospace. However, not only the global market is having opportunities but also the Indian market is having a great and promising future if the government successfully implements the ‘Make in India’ policy.

Yoon et al. (2001, p. 21) attempted to examine the structural effects of four tourism-impact factors on total ipact and on local residents’ support for tourism development. The research revealed that four tourism-impact factors namely economic, social, cultural and environmental impacts were related with two factors, including the variable of total impacts and support for tourism development.
