OrNeg has high number of Filipinos leaving abroad
by Rachelle M. Nessia
Dumaguete City (30 August 2005) -- Oriental Negros is among the provinces in the country from where a big number of Filipinos are leaving for abroad, disclosed officials from the Commission of Filipinos Overseas (CFO) who were in Dumaguete City recently to conduct an awareness campaign on issues concerning migration and intermarriages.

According to Ma. Regina Angela Gallas of CFO in a press conference conducted by the Philippine Information Agency (PIA) here, between 1998 to 2004, around 4,887 Filipinos from the province left the country to work or live overseas. Of the total, almost half are from Dumaguete City with 2, 237.

In the period from 1993 to 2004, there was a total of 1,692 Negrenses who married foreigners, of which 696 are from Dumaguete.

Janet Ramos of CFO in the same activity disclosed that as of December 2004 already 8.08 million Filipinos left the country, or around 10 of the total Filipino population are now based overseas.

About 3.19 million of the total are permanent residents abroad. Some 70 % are in USA, 14% in Canada, 7% in Australia, 6% in Japan, 1% in Germany and .5% in United Kingdom.

Ramos said the number of Filipinos going abroad has been increasing in the recent years, and based on the trend, she said that the number is expected to increase in the following years.

There were a total of 55,137 Filipinos who left the country as immigrants in 2003, and this increased to 64,824 in 2004.

She said that an average of 300 to 350 Filipinos leaving the country as immigrants register for CFO's pre-departure and guidance counseling sessions daily.

CFO is an agency catering to Filipino immigrants, either through petition or intermarriage, and holds pre-departure and guidance counseling sessions for Filipinos about to leave the country.

The agency conducts annual awareness campaigns in provinces identified to have a high number of Filipino immigrants. (PIA)
