PIA Press Release
2010/11/19

Job orders overseas for Pinoys reach 525,472

Manila (19 November) -- The Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) reported yesterday that the approved job orders for Filipino workers abroad reached 525,472 from January to October 2010.

The POEA noted the bulk of the approved job orders was mainly for jobsites in Saudi Arabia, UAE, Kuwait, Hong Kong and Taiwan.

Of the total number, about four-tenths (38.5 percent) was comprised of processed job orders for service, production, as well as professional, technical and related workers.

The agency also reported that land-based workers classified as new hires with processed contracts and awaiting deployment rose by 16.2 percent to 320,915 for the period January-September 2010 from 276,192 in the same period a year ago.

In related development, the recruitment and hiring prospects for Overseas Pinoys continued to be broad-based across host countries.

According to POEA, South Korean demand for Filipino manpower in manufacturing, construction, services, agriculture and livestock, and fishing sectors continues to be strong.

Moreover, as reported in the POEA market update, Germany, to boost its economy, opened its labor market for highly qualified migrant workers particularly technicians and engineers which could also be tapped by overseas Filipinos.

Likewise, the POEA recently lifted the ban on the deployment of overseas Filipino domestic assistants to selected European countries such as Switzerland, Norway and Denmark. (PIA-MMIO) [top]
