I don't know where you found it, but there we go:
Some authority (let's say the World Bank) has told both countries that they must make huge efforts (in terms of taxes, competitiveness of labor market, protectionist laws, etc) to bring stability back to the world economy. As it is, each one of them must make efforts which are completely different from one another; so different as to be, in some cases, opposite (that is, one is asked to derogate certain immigration laws and the other one to enforce them. Just an example though).
