The continuous deployment of Filipino science professionals overseas is a “bittersweet” reality that affects the development of research in the country, a study of the Philippine government’s Science Education Institute (SEI) said.

Titled International Migration of Science and Technology Manpower-OFW, the research conducted by the SEI was “an accounting of the temporary Filipino overseas contract workers” under the science and technology category, using data from the Commission on Filipinos Overseas (CFO) and the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA).

The study accounted the number of overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) in the following occupations:
•physicists, chemists, and related professionals;
•computing professionals;
•life science professionals;
•nursing and midwifery professionals;
•mathematician, statisticians, and related professionals;
•engineers and related professionals; and
•health professionals (except nursing).

It noted that most of the host countries are developed ones, while the sources of workers are the less developed countries.

The salaries of most of the science professionals there are “relatively higher compared to that earned locally by a person with the same profession,” it added.

Most Filipino science professionals, the study found, are deployed in Arab countries, particularly Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE), where most overseas Filipinos were deployed according to the POEA statistics in 2010.

Three other countries in the same region—Kuwait, Qatar, and Bahrain—are included in the top ten destinations.
