In April to September 2018, 15.7 percent of 2.3 million Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) worked in the United Arab Emirates. Nevertheless, some Filipinos are still adamant that UAE is not an ideal and safe place to be working and living in. In this week’s blog post, Subnet RTA will share with you some facts about the UAE that you should know in case you are planning to move or work there.
The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia remained to be the top destination of Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) in April to September 2018 with one out of four (24.3%) Filipinos working there, according to the latest data released by the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA).
