MANILA, Philippines - Filipino workers who wish to gain employment in Paris will now have an easier time fulfilling their goal.
Gerald Chesnel, France’s Ambassador to the Philippines said that the new labor migration policy in France makes it easy for overseas Filipino workers (OFWS) to land a job there.
The France Ambassador said, “There will be more Filipinos in France because we have also new regulations for migration. If Filipino workers want to come to France, it is easier now."
France specifically wished to attract Filipinos workers in the following field: electronic, information technology, and health care industries.
Chesnel said, “We need [people] especially in electronics, informatics, IT. We need also nurses. We don’t have enough in France people who can take care of our old people because in France and most countries in Europe, we don’t have enough young people who are willing to take care of the old people. We know that Filipino nurses are very good for that and they respect your people and treat them well. This is the population we would like to welcome."
To formalize the new labor policy, an immigration agreement with the Philippines and France is set to be signed before year 2008 ends. The main agencies involved are the following: French Ministry of Immigration, Integration, National Identity, and Co-Development, the Department of Labor (DoLE), and the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA).
