Duterte: My gov’t will take care of OFWs
Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte on Sunday vowed to create one government body to take care of the millions of overseas Filipino workers (OFWs.)
Duterte also promised to create a bank for the OFWs for their remittances.
To end the “abuses of our brothers and sisters,” he said he would keep track of the welfare of Filipino workers abroad.
“I will make it mandatory for consul-generals to keep track of OFWs,” he said during the third and final presidential debate at the Phinma-University of Pangasinan in Dagupan City.
He said his administration would be a government “looking after the welfare of Filipinos.” IDL
