It appears that demands for Filipino Jobs Abroad continuous to be stable despite the global economic crisis and localization policies in a number of countries.
“Notwithstanding lingering global economic uncertainties, the cumulative steam of remittances from overseas Filipinos continued to be solid and resilience, supported by sustained demand for Filipino skills abroad,” the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) said in a statement on Monday.

A few months ago we posted on RRJM Facebook Page about an interesting case of a Filipina Domestic Helper applying for permanent residency in Hongkong.
Evangelina Banao Vallejos has been working in Hongkong since 1986 (25 Years).
According to the Legal References website of the Hongkong Judiciary the hearings were set on 22, 23 and 24 August 2011. And the Judgement date was set on September 30.
The verdict was any foreign worker who have resided in the city state for a continuous period of seven years is allowed to apply for permanent residency. Along with it they are entitled the right to vote, welfare and other services.
The HK government is still going to appeal the ruling.
But we should all watch this case because it applies to all foreign workers in all kinds of jobs.
