The Development Dimension Migration, Remittances and Development: MIGRATION POLICIES, REMITTANCES AND ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT IN THE PHILIPPINES
Abstract:The Philippine Overseas Employment Program (OEP) was institutionalised in 1974 with the enactment of the Philippine Labor Code. Regarded as a temporary programme or a stop‐gap economic measure to address the high unemployment rate during the Marcos era, the programme eventually became an important fixture of national policy because of the recognition of the role of international labour markets in containing the problem of local unemployment.
