Aggressive Foreigners Causing Philippine Brain Drain

http://exn.ca/Stories/1998/07/31/54.asp MANILA, PHILIPPINES (NB) -- By Erwin Lemuel G. Oliva, Metropolitan Computer Times. The Philippine Software Associations (PSA) is claiming that the local software industry is losing a lot of its key people to "aggressive" foreign recruiters. Accordingly, many projects held by these migrant IT workers have, in effect, been delayed or even halted, thereby putting local software houses at the losing end. "The brain drain in the IT sector has reached a proportion that the local industry is now reeling from the lack of trained IT professionals in the country," the PSA claims in a statement obtained by Newsbytes.
