Gloria Arroyo Requests Japan to Take more Workers from Philippines

Remittance is one of the top contributors for Philippine economy. Many workers from the country are in the Middle East countries and they send billions of dollars every year back home to families and relatives. However, now, because of economic recession, the country is suffering in this sector. So, President Gloria Arroyo has called on Japan to help the country. They have skilled workers who are good in English and that is why Gloria Arroyo is suggesting that her country can provide many English language teachers and IT workers for Japan.

What I understand is that Japan is suffering from economic recession. Unemployment is a major concern in the country now. So, I am not sure whether Japan can give importance to the call of Gloria Arroyo.
