MANILA – Plans are underway to construct a training facility for healthcare professionals in the Philippines, Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello III said.
Bello made the announcement after a meeting this week with delegates from six healthcare companies from Japan.
Bello said Japanese investors will fund the construction of the planned facility in a bid to enhance the employability of Filipino healthcare professionals, such as nurses and caregivers aspiring to work in Japan.
“Some members of the delegation from the Taizankai Medical Society (TMS) laid down plans to establish a training facility here to ensure the readiness of Filipino healthcare professionals to be employed, not only in Japan, but also in other parts of the world,” Bello said.
Bello had a meeting with the group to discuss the current developments, challenges and opportunities for Filipino workers in Japan.
In his message, TMS President Taiji Yamada said there is no doubt that the caring and hospitable characteristics of the Filipinos are well suited for the growing healthcare industry. PR/DOLE
