House Bill 1357 authored by Rep. Roseller Barrinaga was filed in the 13th Congress of the Philippines. It provides for an OWWA charter that shall govern the operation and administration of the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA). Currently, in the 14th Congress, no proposed bill on OWWA has been filed. CMA recommends to study the merits of the proposed Charter for the purpose of drafting a bill on OWWA.
This document is an effort to monitor, in terms of policy, the proposed Charter of the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA). Created by a presidential letter of instruction with the intent of assisting the overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) in terms of welfare and training for more than three decades now.
