In line with President Rodrigo Duterte’s special focus for the OFWs, the City Government of Baguio and the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) will open a “one-stop shop” service center for the latter this coming Saturday, October 29.

It will be located at the Baguio City Center and formal opening will be conducted by DOLE Secretary Silvestre Bello III and Baguio Mayor Mauricio Domogan.

The “one-stop service” center will provide easy access for the OFW in processing their travel and work documents.

Domogan said services of the line agencies will bring the government services to the grassroots level which is one of the goals of the national government.

The politiko said the OFWs may patronize the “one-stop shop” as soon as it becomes operational to facilitate the processing of the pertinent requirements for their work overseas without delay.

Duterte, in his first State-of-the-Nation Address, directed all offices to establish “one-stop shop” centers to ensure that all requirements needed by the public are housed in one location for public convenience.

The “one-stop shop” will include services of the Department of Foreign Affairs, Philippine Overseas Employment Administration, Overseas Workers Welfare Administration, Technical Education and Skills Development Authority, Professional Regulation Commission, Maritime Industry Authority, Home Development Mutual Fund, Philippine Health Insurance Corporation, Social Security System, Philippine Statistics Authority – National Statistics Office, Bureau of Immigration, National Bureau of Investigation, Commission on Higher Education and Tourism Infrastructure and Enterprise Zone Authority.
