MANILA, Philippines – A common complaint among overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) and their families is that government services they require are spread across too many agencies. This can be inconvenient and confusing for workers needing information. The government hopes to end this confusion soon, after heads of government agencies serving OFWs signed a document that aims to streamline these various services. (from Rappler)
