A two-week job fair in Saudi Arabia and Qatar this year. This is a plan of the Philippine government to encourage Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) to apply for a job where they can home and work in the country.
According to reports, the government will bring 18,000 job vacancies for Filipinos in the Middle East. Part of these is 2,000 job opportunities for teachers who want to work in the Department of Education (DepEd).
The planned job fair in the Middle East is being discussed after the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) banned Filipinos from working in Kuwait due to the deaths and abuse of Filipino maids there.
