Community expertise drain

Other Names:
Uncontrolled migration of village labour force
Skilled workers from rural areas are obliged to leave their villages and seek work in the already overcrowded cities, due to the lack of industrial and commercial development elsewhere. Those who leave the village for further academic or technical training rarely return, and if they do they can seldom find employment.
