President Arroyo Urged the Arab Employers to Hire More Filipino Nurses & Others

President Arroyo goes to work in her two-day working visit in Dubai to encourage Arab employers to hire more overseas Filipino workers (OFWs), meet with the Filipino community in the Arab state, and pay a visit to UAE President Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan at the Presidential Palace in Abu Dhabi.

Thousands of OFWs (as well as those hoping to get out of the country soon) expressed hope that the two-day visit to Dubai by Mrs. Arroyo and a delegation of labor officials will secure their jobs there and create more employment opportunities in the host country for Filipinos.

Labor officials headed by Labor Secretary Marianito Roque had arranged a meeting with foreign principals beginning yesterday until today in Dubai where they planned to discuss more job openings for OFWs.  The top agenda of the meeting is the set of strategies on how the government could fill up the job vacancies for Filipino skilled workers and professionals in Dubai.

This year alone, she said more than 100,000 jobs are available in the Middle East for construction workers, engineers, architects, and medical workers such as nurses and caregivers. However, the recruitment industry warned OFWs seeking employment in Dubai to verify from their prospective employer first if a working visa or permit will be issued to them before they depart for the most populous city of the United Arab Emirates.
