Time and again, we have written about the importance of a recruitment agency to be licensed by the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA). But did you know what POEA really is? In this blog post, let us get to know more about the agency that takes care of our modern day heroes, the Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs).
In line with the government’s commitment to protecting and upholding the welfare of the country’s modern-day heroes, President Rodrigo Duterte has kept his promise to the Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) during his 2016 presidential campaign. Almost two years forward, President Duterte led the ceremonial launch of the OFW bank on January 18th, 2018 in Liwasang Bonifacio, Manila. Named as the Overseas Filipino Bank, the OFBank is a policy bank dedicated to provide financial products and services tailored to the requirements of OFWs and foreign-based Filipinos.
