Brunson McKinley, director general of the International Organization for Migration (IOM), said on Friday that he hoped his organization would expand cooperation with China.
McKinley spoke during an interview at the IOM Liaison Office here.
He said that human mobility was bound to grow as a result of rapid globalization, world economic integration, climate change and the information revolution, which posed challenges for all countries, including China.
McKinley said that it was very important to maximize the benefits and solve the problems of migration.
McKinley, who worked with the U.S. Liaison Office to China from1973 to 1974, was here from March 20-21 to attend the launch of the capacity building program for migration management in China on Thursday.
The two-year program is sponsored by the European Union and will include exchanges of personnel, information and technology concerning migration between China and the EU.
