DOLE backs proposed separate agency for OFWs to make services effective, efficient


- Advertisment -

The Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) backed the proposed separate agency for overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) to make the programs related to them be more effective and efficient. 

“We really look forward to a DOFW (Department of OFW) that will be of better service to our brothers and sisters na OFWs,” Labor Undersecretary Joji Aragon said in a statement. 

She added that the separate agency envisions to make their programs and services effective and more efficient. 

Presently, various agencies handle OFW affairs, including DOLE, Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA), the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA), and the Department of Foreign Affairs’ Undersecretary for Migrant Workers Affairs.
