Lightbulb Taiwan agencies urged to support OFWs


The Department of Labor and Employment (DoLE) urged officials of the Pilipino Manpower Agencies Accredited to Taiwan (Pilmat) to lend support to government’s efforts to provide expanded welfare and protection to OFWs deployed to Taiwan.

Labor Secretary Rosalinda Baldoz held a dialog with Pilmat on key issues affecting the deployment of OFWs in Taiwan.

Pilmat is an association of several POEA-licensed recruitment agencies authorized to deploy Filipino workers to Taiwan .

“By now, you know that President Benigno Aquino’s overarching agenda is to invest in our country’s top resource, our human resource, to make us more competitive and employable while promoting industrial peace based on social justice,” Baldoz said during the dialogue.

She reminded the Pilmat officials that 11 of the 22-point labor and employment agenda of President Aquino’s concern for OFWs and mentioned that one of the most important points in the 11 items is the call for the transformation of Filipino Workers Resource Centers into centers of care and excellence.

“The agenda calls on us to address the social costs of migration by working closely with communities and families of OFWs to provide effective social welfare services such as counseling and pre-departure orientation seminars,” she said.

Baldoz informed Pilmat during the dialog that she had directed the POEA, the OWWA, and the Philippine Overseas Labor Offices in Taiwan to undertake further efforts to strengthen welfare and protection for OFWs in that destination to complement the Taiwanese’s preference for Filipino skilled and professional workers.

The Philippines deployed 33,751 OFWs to Taiwan in 2009, according to POEA data. Mina Diaz
