    Realizing a fair migration between Asia and the Arab States

    Bali-Indonesia, 5 May 2015

    The largest migrant flows from South Asia and part of South-East Asia are to the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) member states, who currently rely on foreign labour to fill in almost 90 per cent of private sector jobs, often in construction, service and domestic work.
