This is regarding the attached request. FOI Request #POEA-531537717951 

Thank you for sending the copy of MOU as well as the general statistics. 

However, would you be able to send a detailed statistics regarding the number of workers deployed via EPS since 2004?

How many were deployed?  How many of them returned to the Philippines?  How many returned back to Korea for work? If possible to have the break down of this data annually,  it will be much appreciated.
