dc.description.abstract The paper gives a comprehensive picture of the history of internal migration, destination cities, age and sex of migrants and the sectors of employment. It also covers the impact of such internal migration both to the migrants and their families and the economy of the country. The author also identifies the gaps in research on the subject and recommends the conduct of regular migration surveys. The patterns and trends of labour migration, with emphasis on migration to the Gulf region are also described, with detailed tables of statistics relating to destinations, periods, gender, abuse and accidents. The impact of the national economy of labour migration is also examined. The report concludes with a review of the existing policy directives and recommendations for future developments of such policies. en_US
