The Philippines has the most sophisticated labor-exporting model in the world. Despite the robust supply of workers in the Philippines, there is a concern that emigration—coupled with limited capacity of local training institutions—has contributed to labor shortages in key industries.
Please join the International Organization for Migration and the Migration Policy Institute at a breakfast briefing to discuss these critical issues and launch the Issue in Brief, Shortage amid Surplus: Emigration and Human Capital Development in the Philippines, the fifteenth in this joint-publication series offering succinct insights on migration issues affecting the Asia-Pacific region today.
The Rajanakarn Building is a short walk from the Chong Nongsi BTS station and is right beside the Ascott Sathorn Hotel and Empire Tower.
