Why does migration to Iceland matter?

English

Iceland is rapidly growing from a relatively small, far away island to a recognized actor among the Nordic Countries. Many migrants come to Iceland to explore opportunities, to embark on a new path in life, to work, to study, to seek asylum or as quota refugees. Visitors are welcomed, as a valuable source of tourism, work force and an addition to the gene pool.
