While it is widely believed that everybody wants to have their version of the American dream, a recent NEDA survey shows that most Filipinos only want to work in the country.
The survey, titled "Ambisyon Natin 2040," reviewed the aspirations of the Filipinos as part of Long-term Vision project, which dares to imagine where the country wants to be in 2040.
Conducted to a population size of 10, 000 respondents, 88% of Filipinos said that they preferred to work in the country by 2040 instead of abroad.
Moreover, if it came down to a choice, over 69 % would still rather just work at home instead of overseas.
