Labor and Employment Secretary Rosalinda Baldoz said in an interview that UAE Ministry of Labor Saqr Gho-bash Saeed Ghobash proposed the proj¬ect during his visit last week, wherein OFWs could avail of skills training.
“I was very interested in that (pro¬posal) because Gulf States are getting many skilled work¬ers. It is about time they will seriously consider they can invest in their skills development,” Bal¬doz said.

If approved, the program is expected to boost the employability of OFWs in UAE.
Baldoz said pro¬fessions which will be covered by the program is still be¬ing finalized and will depend on the in-demand jobs in the UAE. (Samuel P. Medenilla)
