KUWAIT CITY, Jan 23: A group of Philippine employment agencies in Manila has written to the Philippines Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello requesting him to allow them to send trained workers to Kuwait and those who were on vacation abroad, reports Al- Rai daily.
In what is seen as a new development, in the letter which was published in the Philippines by a newspaper, the agencies said the administrative decision No. 25 issued by the Philippine government is only concerned with domestic employment.
The letter stated the agencies be allowed to send techno specialists, market managers, electricity and maintenance technicians, plumbers and carpenters as soon as they receive tickets from their sponsors in Kuwait. “The Labor Secretary confirmed last Friday that Filipinos who have tickets and business contracts can travel to Kuwait and complete their work,” the Philippine news agency said.
