The Filipino youth and the employment-migration nexus

Published by: MDG Achievement Fund and UNICEF


This report analyses the international migration patterns for employment in the Philippines and offers suggestions on how to respond to them. Presently more than 10% of the national population is based abroad. This study also aims to better understand the link between youth employment and migration and how to broaden the youth’s options in these areas.

It recommends promoting the hiring of young workers via incentives such as tax breaks, improving education and dissemination of information on job opportunities both within the country and abroad, and it notes the need to engage young Filipinos overseas to improve data collection and develop “brain gain” policies and programs.
