Taiwan’s manufacturing sector still has its growth but its net hiring for the first quarter fall 2% according to the survey made by the firm group. Overseas Filipino Workers (OFW) has the number of migrant workers in terms of working in the manufacturing industry of Taiwan especially in electronics, semiconductor and food manufacturing.

Its transportation, warehousing, communication, retail and wholesale industry stood the best in terms of net hiring but unluckily only few OFW are hired in this kind of sectors.
