Duterte to ask labor Secretary Bello for possible removal of OEC for OFWs

(Wow-Cordillera) -- In his community meeting with overseas Filipino Workers (OFW) gathered in a hotel near the airport in Hong Kong on Friday, President Rodrigo Duterte once again asked the Filipinos to give him 3 to 4 years to improve the Philippines.

Prior to his scheduled trip to China to attend the One Belt, One Road (Obor) Summit, Duterte delivered a speech to the gathered group of OFWs that eagerly waited for him.

In a short interview after the meeting, the issue of the Overseas Employment Certificate or OEC online service was brought up, asking the president for the total scrapping of the process siting that such procedure only adds to the burden of OFWs when going home.

In order for an OFW to be granted departure from the airport, he/she must present an Overseas Employment Certification  (for first time OFW) or present an OEC exemption number ( returning OFW to the same employer) to the immigration officer before he will be allowed to exit the country.

Although the new procedure of getting a certificate is done partly online, many OFWs still struggle to log-in and register due to unfamiliarity of modern technology.

Thus, they asked the president for a possible removal of the OEC.

President Duterte acknowledged the call and said he will ask the labor secretary to look into it.

"I will ask Bebot Bello to conduct a study. I'm not too familiar with what is wrong here and what is not," he said.

He also added that he will conduct an investigation and crackdown of alleged illegal recruiters who are victimizing many unfortunate Filipinos.

With the regard to the issue of some domestic helpers who allegedly forced to sleep in an inhuman sleeping quarters, he said that Hong Kong authorities and legislators will look into it and will fix the problem.

President Duterte is set to arrive on Beijing, China to attend the Obor Summit on Saturday.

The Obor Summit will be attended by leaders of 28 nations in Beijing to map out China's ambitious new Silk Road project.
