POEA Sees Rebound In OFW Hiring

Bonjour. Mabuhay.

Planning to go abroad as an OFW? Here's some good news.

THE country would soon be able to recover from the 3.79 percent drop in the deployment of overseas Filipino workers, the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration said yesterday.

POEA administrator Carlos Cao said his optimism is based on some 675,146 job orders from at least 129 countries that they are currently holding.

"Add this figure to the 380,188 that we have already deployed during the first quarter of 2011 and we could breach the one million mark," Cao said.

He said the figure does not include the projected employment opportunities to be offered in Saudi Arabia, Guam, South Korea and Australia, among others.

Earlier this month, POEA admitted the drop in the first quarter OFW deployment from 395,189 workers in 2010 to 380,188 this year.

Cao blamed the drop largely on the political crises in the Middle East and North Africa, and the selective ban on OFW deployment put in place by the Philippine government itself. - http://www.malaya.com.ph/may31/news8.html
