Contingency plan for OFWs in Taiwan, pushed by Senator Tulfo

Senator Raffy Tulfo urged the government and other concerned agencies to develop a contingency plan for Overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) should the tension between China and Taiwan escalate.

The government agencies should develop an organized plan to ensure the safety of OFWs.  in Taiwan and other neighboring countries.

Tulfo heads the Senate Committee on Migrant Workers, the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA), Philippine Overseas Labor Office (POLO) and the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA).

“We should be ready to evacuate OFWs in the event that the current situation escalates into a war,” Tulfo said.

He said, in his experience helping OFWs over the past two decades, government agencies seem to be more reactive than proactive.

There are an estimated 200,000 OFWs working in Taiwan.
