SECURING OUR OFWs’ FUTURE

IT’S GOOD that the Social Security System (SSS) is pushing for the mandatory coverage of overseas Filipino workers as part of the proposed reforms and amendments in its charter now pending before Congress.

The move is seen to help achieve its goal of expanding membership and at the same time ensure that our OFWs would have something to look up to once they decide to stop working overseas and stay in the country for good.

According to the latest data from the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA), there are 2.4 million OFWs as of 2016.

The reports therefore that the government might start building this year what it described as hybrid model national broadband network was a welcome development for everyone.

In a presser, Information and Communications Technology Secretary Rodolfo Salalima was quoted as saying that their project would aspire to serve at bringing internet access to mainly underserved areas in the countryside.

Salalima is recommending for the government to build a “north to south” broadband…
