Brain drain can be noted as the migration of the skilled personnel in search of the better standards of life, increased salaries and availability of the advanced technology and more stable living environment. This immigration of the skilled personnel from one country to another is a matter of growing concern because of its impact on the economic system of the developing countries. This report will figure out the aspects of the issue like, what is the social issue, who is effected and how, what are the consequences etc...Background information about the issue, data from the past along with the possible solution to the topic will also be covered in the report.

Defining the issue, brain drain is the movement of the skilled workers from one part of the world to another part of the world. In 2000 nearly 175 million persons, or 2.9% of the...
