It's no longer a secret that Germany represents the main target of immigrants. Under these conditions, experts warn that there are some necessary long-term strategies to handle this problem more easily. On November 12, in Malta, European leaders will meet with those of North African states to sign an agreement that will facilitate the cooperation between the countries' governments. However, the situation is at a tipping point: In Europe, winter is fast approaching, and thousands of immigrants still live in refugee camps, in inappropriate conditions, and the cold seems to rush the process of integration.


According to experts, Germany could spend between 5.9 and 8.3 billion euros this year and between 9.0 and 14.3 billion euro in 2016 for integration of the refugees. Although it is a very disturbing reality, German authorities continue to be very confident about this crisis. The German Finance Minister, Wolfgang Schauble, has decided to add eight billion euros of its budget for the year 2016, giving assurances that Germany will be able to cope with the influx of immigrants.


Economists had urged German authorities to accelerate procedures for consideration of requests for asylum, as more than a million immigrants could arrive in Germany this year.

According to Reuters, an action plan of 17 pages will be signed on Thursday by EU leaders and Africans at the Malta Summit, agreeing to dozens of initiatives - some older, others newer- spells out that which the leaders deem is necessary to represent a partnership in the fight against poverty and insecurity that pushes Africans on to the north of the continent.

This agreement is intended to provide assurances that migration is a phenomenon that is safe and beneficial to all involved.

According to the plan, all progress is to carefully tracked and the problems of education and the social dimensions will be addressed . Thus, the number of Africans students and university teachers taking part in an exchange program in the field of education with the EU will be doubled next year, compared with the level in 2014.
