Preserving jobs, generating employment seen to help stimulate economic activities

by T. Villavert

Iloilo City (25 February) -- One of the key priorities of the government to help stimulate economic activities is to preserve jobs and generate employment.

President Arroyo in one of her speeches, disclosed that on the employment front, the government is processing 3,000 jobs daily as it extends all possible assistance to Filipino workers here and abroad.

She said that her administration had "rebooted"the economy years before the current financial meltdown "and this economic medicine helps a lot in mitigating the impact of worldwide economic turmoil on the Philippines.

"We have brought forward investments to further stimulate our economy, to help our people and to sustain the growth that has been so important to our economic success," she said.

It will be recalled that during the President's recent visit to Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, the government had launched a skills-retooling program for Filipino overseas workers (OFWs) right in their places of employment abroad.Under the retraining program, the professional regulation commission (PRC) will conduct licensure examinations for Filipino professionals, who have yet to take the examinations required for their profession, right in the countries where they are working.

In tandem with the government's retraining program abroad, the Technical Education & Skills Development Authority (TESDA) has launched a massive vocational training and retraining program to further raise the level of the Filipino worker's competitiveness.(PIA 6) [top]
