More jobs abroad for Pinoys despite economic crisis

Iloilo City (10 February) -- Despite the prevailing global economic slowdown, another window of opportunity in overseas employment has been opened for Filipino workers.

Recently, the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) disclosed in a Malacanang report that the country's labor officials and Australian employers met to discuss the recruitment of thousands of Filipino workers.

"South Australia is bent on recruiting Filipino skilled workers to address its perennial problem on skills shortage and subsequently ease the pressure on employers in this Australian state, struggling with the lack of essential skills," said POEA Administrator Jennifer Jardin-Manalili.

South Australia needs an initial 10,000 construction workers, welders and pipe fitters for its rehabilitation projects according to the POEA.

Manpower requirements of these projects are estimated to reach 133,000 until 2018. Another 206,000 workers would be required to replace those who would leave the workforce.

Manalili added that Australia was very reassuring that it will hire OFWs this year even its export, manufacturing, and retail sectors were adversely affected by the financial crisis.

South Australia is a state of Australia in the southern central part of the country. Its economy centers on agriculture, mining and manufacturing, mostly of automotive and component parts, pharmaceuticals, defense technology and electronics systems.

Nearly 1.6 million people live in the state that comprises less than 10 percent of the Australian population.(PIA) [top]
