Return of Investment on OCWs

There is no difference between foreign exploitation of our natural resources and highly-skilled human resources. Exploitation means our local resources are imported by other countries but our motherland is not benefiting any wealth of this exportation.

What benefit will out motherland get in return for the taxpayers expenses (govt subsidy) on the healthcare, primary education, secondary education, scholarship in State University, and skills training of a person who leaves the country to work in a foreign land? Why should government invest in the person without a guarantee that the Philippines will benefit from the person in the future?
