POEA conducts Bacolod seminar on anti-illegal recruitment, anti-trafficking in persons

Negros Occidental (21 September) -- With about 10 million Filipinos working abroad and sending approximately $14 billion a year as government figures indicate, many are enticed to seek employment abroad.

The rising demand of skilled Filipino workers as well as health care providers around the world, more and more Filipino hopefuls are trying their luck on employers and recruitment agencies where most of the time they fall prey on illegal recruiters carting their money and dreams away.

The Philippine Overseas and Employment Agency is conducting a seminar on anti-illegal recruitment and anti-trafficking in persons through its satellite office in Bacolod City headed by Carmen Nagum.

Nagum told PIA that in 2006, more than P3 million was wasted to illegal recruiters in Negros Occidental alone.

"Although some of these cases are already with the prosecutor's office for appropriate decision still, many illegal recruiters remain free as it is hard to go after them since these are foreign nationals," Nagum added.

This seminar aims to orient the police force on illegal recruitment and trafficking as well as create awareness to the other partners in curbing these problems.

Set on September 27, from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at Sugarland Hotel, the seminar will be participated by representatives from the different government agencies, non-government organizations, private entities, religious sectors, LGUs, law enforcement agencies and the tri-media. (PIA/EAD) [top]
