I am so pleased to receive an invitation from Phil. Embassy and Phil. Overseas Labor Office particularly from our New Labor Attache Rusty Dela Fuente re: series of consultation among Filcom leaders in Riyadh. The mentioned first series of activities dubbed as “2006 Filcom Leaders Consultation Workshop” will be on Friday, September 15, 2006 from 1:30 PM to 4:30 PM at the Chancery Hall, Philippine Embassy, Diplomatic Quarters, Riyadh, KSA. Filcom leaders are divided into two groups (sessions), one in the morning and the other in the afternoon where I belong.
The said workshop is designed to identify common felt needs issues and concerns affecting the employment and welfare of OFWs in Riyadh. It also endeavors to collectively recommend corresponding solutions and responses.
Labor Attache Rustco Dela Fuente is not new to the community; he served the OFWs in the Kingdom before and just recently posted as Labor Attache in Riyadh. He was also one of the POLO officials assigned in Lebanon to look for the welfare of OFWs during Israel-Hezbollah crisis. I met him twice and I described him as a low profile persona and friendly to everyone. I may say that he is the right man for a very tough job.
Good Luck! Sir and see you on Friday.
