BW Research: Economic Indicator

BW Research: Economic Indicator: "Results from the 2006 Survey on Overseas Filipinos (SOF) released by the National Statistics Office (NSO) show that the OFWs who worked in a foreign land during the period April to September 2006 reached 1.52 million, 14.3% more than the 1.33 OFWs reported during the same period a year ago....

East Asia remained the second biggest home to OFWs; two out of 10 (22.6%) OFWs worked either in Hong Kong, Japan, Taiwan and Singapore, while almost one out of 10 (9.9%) worked in our neighboring Southeast Asian countries like Malaysia and Singapore."
