ER-01: Examining the Portability of Social Security Benefits among Migrant Workers in the APEC Region: A Roundtable Discussion

For 2015, the research study entitled “Examining the Portability of Social Security Benefits among Migrant Workers in the APEC Region” has been proposed as one of the Institute’s working papers. The study intends to deliver valuable information on the portability of social security benefits among migrant workers both in Asian and non-Asian member-economies of the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC). As preliminary drafts of the research are already available, a roundtable discussion (RTD) was held on 29 June 2015, at the Employee Compensation Commission (ECC)in Makati City. The RTD served as a stock-taking activity to inform key government agencies with their mandate to ensure migrant’s welfare and protection, the social security situation within the Asia Pacific region, and gather their perspectives on the feasibility of implementing portable social security measures. Moreover, the initial findings of the study were presented for validation.
