International migration is a major driver of social and economic change in the contemporary Asia-Pacific region. Asia-Pacific countries are overlooking the gains they receive from migrant workers and need to do a better job of improving worker conditions, says this report. When you provide migrants with decent work, when you treat migrants as your own, assimilate them into your economy and treat them as national labour – it really benefits the national economy.
