OFWs Around The World



Everywhere you go, you would definitely see a Filipino. It might be in Asia, Europe, America or even in the Middle East. We Filipinos do everything for our families even sacrificing being away from them. I actually read this data weeks ago and wasn't able to post it. Since I can consider myself as an "OFW" (Overseas Filipino Workers), I was intrigued on our demography.

Here is the 11 million OFWs Around the World.

United States - 4,000,000
Saudi Arabia - 2,000,000
Malaysia - 636,544
Canada - 437,940
UAE - 450,000
Japan - 258,977
United Kingdom - 200,000
Italy - 200,000
Mexico - 200,000
Qatar - 200,000
Taiwan - 158,116
Singapore - 150,000
Hong Kong - 130,810
Australia - 129,400
Kuwait - 144,955
South Korea - 70,000
Germany - 65,000
France - 65,000
Guam - 45,600
Greece - 40,000
Bahrain - 36,718
Israel - 37,155
Lebanon - 30,000
Spain - 26,505

Norway - 19,291
Netherlands - 18,456
Macau - 18,447
Sweden - 17,343
Thailand - 5,000
Nigeria - 2,324

I don't think I'm still not included in that list since that is only as of 2007.

If you like this post, buy me a cup of coffee.
