They have the most positive view of immigration
5th August 2011: If you think immigration is bad for the country as it puts pressure on the services, look at the Brazilians. They have the most positive view of immigration.
This was revealed by Global @dvisor survey of 17,000 people worldwide. It was conducted by Ipsos Mori.
Brazilians had the most positive view of immigration. Almost half, 49 per cent, insisted immigration made their country a more interesting place to live in. Their assertion is in sharp contrast to the opinion expressed by the Britons. Just 33 per cent Britons believe immigration makes the country a more interesting place to live in.
A similar proportion of Brazilians thought immigration was good for their country’s economy.
The survey also showed only Russians and Belgians were more likely to say their nation had too many migrants.
People in Japan, where immigration is historically low, had the least concern about numbers.
