According to Ukraine eyes Filipino workers in rebuilding war-torn nation | Global News (inquirer.net), Denys Mykhailiuk, the country's ambassador to Malaysia, said on Wednesday that Ukraine is considering using Filipino labor to help reconstruct the war-torn country.
According to Mykhailiuk, conversations would start about sending Filipino workers to help Ukraine rebuild after its war with Russia caused damage.
As this rehabilitation endeavor would require a large increase in manpower, we will start discussions regarding future Filipino labor, the counselor told reporters at a news conference in Makati City.
The bulk of European governments, including Ukraine, are aging nations. Hardworking Filipinos will be warmly welcomed there to support our progress and Filipino investors would also be warmly received there, he continued. This is not the case here.
Mykhailiuk said that their calculations indicated that $1 trillion would be required for Ukraine's rebuilding.
He said that a quick recovery strategy had already been put in place for the rebuilding and restoration.
According to Mykhailiuk, we started this initiative to solicit donations and investments from outside.
We envision Ukraine becoming the largest building site in Europe, if not the entire globe, within the next ten years. We'll draw in workers. We will draw in capital, and these investments are secured by international organizations as well as the Ukrainian government, which might be dangerous, he added.
Ukraine lost 35% of its GDP last year as a result of the conflict.
Russia invaded Ukraine on February 24, 2022, to stop what it perceived as Western intrusion brought about by NATO's and the EU's backing for Kiev.
