Job fair to be launched by Duterte admin to help returning OFWs

-

- Advertisment -

Presidential spokesperson Harry Roque assured the displaced and returning overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) will be helped by the national government by providing them jobs through the ‘Build Build Build’ projects.

“Magkakaroon po tayo ng job fair especially targeting the OFWs dahil kailangan po natin sila ngayong nandito na sila sa bayan natin at kulang po talaga ang mga construction workers dahil marami ang nagsipag-abroad na,” Roque said in a statement.

Currently, the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA) is providing displaced OFWs with help and the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) has recently received additional funds to further promote their programs and reach thousands of OFWs.

Roque added that even the Department of Trade and Industry (DICT) and the Department of Agriculture (DA) have already prepared programs for OFWs who want to start a business.

It was also recently reported that more than 300,000 OFWs are expected to go back to the Philippines this year as the travel and movement have been restricted and greatly affect the economy.
