The Philippine Embassy in Singapore and the Philippine Overseas Labour Office conducted the first of the series of Post Arrival Orientation Seminars (PAOS) lined up for 2018 last Sunday, February 25 at the Embassy Chancery. The seminar benefitted 280 Filipino domestic workers who were provided with information that would help them achieve a pleasant living and working experience in Singapore.
Ambassador Joseph Del Mar Yap led officials of the Philippine Embassy and the attached agencies in reminding the workers to be law-abiding residents of Singapore and help raise the bar of Filipino identity in the said city-state.
The officials took turns in orienting the workers on the Embassy’s consular, assistance to nationals, labor and welfare, OWWA, trade, SSS and Pag-IBIG services. The workers were also relations between the Philippines and Singapore.
The event was supported by the Embassy’s institutional partners including Philippine National Bank, Metro Remittance Singapore Pte. Ltd, BDO Singapore, LBC Express, Afreight Cargo Pte. Ltd, Brunphil Express Pte. Ltd, and PLDT Singapore.
