About the product

Using available statistics as a guide, this report examines the levels and trends of population migration to selected countries in Asia. The report focuses primarily on changes since 1970 and discusses the burgeoning of labour migration during the past decades in response to the development of strong economies in Eastern, South-Eastern, and Western Asia. The report also touches on permanent settlement of people and refugee flows that have characterized several countries in Asia.
