ABSTRACT
The article discusses the impact of the departure of international migrant workers on the country they left. Information technology professionals from India who worked overseas and go back to their country boosted India's service exports. Financial reasons and hopelessness forced highly trained professionals to leave the Philippines to work overseas even if it means a downward career move. Even as the infrastructure continues to decline in the Philippines and its industries become less competitive globally, massive remittances by overseas workers prevent the worst from happening.
