Albay was named as one of the top five provinces with the highest amount of remittance and number of Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) recently by the Commission of Filipino Overseas (CFO).

Among the other top provinces are Pangasinan, Iloilo, Negros Occidental and Pampanga.

Albay, the report said, contributes greatly to the $25 billion that is brought into country by the migrant workers.

Last year, however, the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA) noted that Camarines Sur had the highest number of OFWs in the Bicol Region, with around 25,242 workers abroad. In the same year, Albay had 16,607 OFWs.

The same agency also said that female OFWs from Bicol outnumber the males, according to the 2013 data.

United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, and Hong Kong are the top areas in which OFWs from Bicol work.


A majority of the OFWs are domestic helpers, caregivers and nurses, the report added.—BICOLSTANDARD.COM
