We would like to request for the number of OFWs repatriated from Saudi, Kuwait, U.A.E., and Japan ( if any)  for the period: whole year 2017 and Jan - June2018. This data is being requested since we notice a decline in the OFW remittances from said countries. We appreciate if you can provide the figures within the day please.
