Asian Development Bank Institute : 2020

The biggest driver of migration flows in Asia is the search for greater job opportunities and better income. This report analyzes labor migration in Asia and puts it in the context of demographic and policy trends. It examines different approaches to effective labor migration management, including the imposition and regulation of fees and costs, and reviews the relevant policies in Asia and the Pacific. It also looks forward to new approaches, examining the concept of skills mobility partnerships and how existing migration channels in Asia could be innovated using this concept.
