DTI-ROG, OWWA SIGN MOU: DTI-Regional Operations Group (DTI-ROG) supervising Undersecretary Zenaida Maglaya speaks during the MOU signing of the Enterprise Development and Loan Program (EDLP) between the DTI and Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA) to assist Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) adjust on their return to the country through entrepreneurship.

MANILA, Philippines - The Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) has formalized its partnership with the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA) to implement a program to help repatriated overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) venture into small businesses.

A memorandum of understanding (MOU) has been signed by the DTI-Regional Operations Group (ROG) and the OWWA to formalize their partnership in implementing the Enterprise Development and Loan Program (EDLP) for returning OFWs.
EDLP, formerly the P2-billion OFW Reintegration Program, seeks to help OFWs and their families who intend to venture into micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) build their own businesses, in support of the government’s reintegration program.

DTI-ROG Undersecretary Zenaida Maglaya said the partnership came at a good time as some OFWs, specifically those from Saudi Arabia, have recently been retrenched due to the oil crisis.

“Now with this situation with our OFWs, it’s good that we have partnered with OWWA because what we really want to happen is that they would still be able to help their families, be able to get a good and decent job, without leaving the country,” Maglaya said.

She added the partnership is timely as the DTI and OWWA intend to promote and advance entrepreneurship for OFWs.
