PH lawmaker urges creation of Department for OFWs

A Philippine legislator on Monday revived the push for the creation of a Department of Overseas Filipino Workers (DOFW), touting as urgent the need to more efficiently deliver aid and protection to workers abroad.

“We urgently need this OFW Department. Deployment of workers abroad is not a temporary phenomenon. I agree that our main goal is still to provide a good employment environment here, but the fact is there are millions of Filipino workers abroad,” Senator Aquilino “Koko” Pimentel was quoted in the Manila Standard.

“There will always be those who will choose to work abroad, even if their numbers may dwindle or even if they will eventually come back home to retire. We should offer our modern Filipino heroes greater focus and protection than we give them at the moment,” he added.

He said the urgency comes as insufficient manpower had been reported at national government agencies mandated to address OFW concerns and respond to economic trends that threaten OFWs’ jobs, among others.

Pimentel filed in May 2017 Senate Bill 1445, “An Act Creating the Department of Overseas Filipino Workers, Defining its Powers and Functions, Appropriating Funds Therefor, and for Other Purposes.”

The creation of a DOFW is among the campaign promises of President Rodrigo R. Duterte.
