February 20, 2014

As part of their study tour on good practices in labour migration management, eleven(11) Nigerian government officials from the Ministry of Justice, Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Federal Ministry of Labour and Productivity visited the National Reintegration Center for Overseas Filipino Workers last January 28 to facilitate an information exchange and peer learning mission in the Philippines.

Facilitated by International Organization for Migration (IOM) Nigeria in collaboration with IOM Philippines, this European Union-funded tour aims to enhance the migration management in Nigeria. One of its objectives is to strengthen national capacity to manage organized labour migration and mobilize diaspora for national development.

NRCO OIC-Director Violeta N. Muñoz spearheaded the endeavour in welcoming the said officials. Muñoz also presented audio-visual presentations on the NRCO programs and services and OFW success stories. She also presented a short discourse on the National Reintegration Program, emphasizing the “brain-gain” system or the transfer of technology among OFW-returnees, as part of the information exchange objective of the tour.

Aside from NRCO, the said officials also visited the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA), the International Labour Affairs Bureau (ILAB), Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA), Office of the Undersecretary for Migrant Workers of the Department of Foreign Affairs, Kabalikat ng Migranteng Pilipino, Inc. (KAMPI), and LBS e-recruitment Solutions.
