DOLE chief ‘receptive’ to POLO transfer
LABOR Secretary Silvestre Bello III is receptive to the proposal to transfer the Philippine Overseas Labor Office from the Admiralty Centre to Lippo Centre.
“He’s favorable [to the proposal] because it’s cheaper and more convenient. He’s receptive to the idea,” said Labor Attache Jalilo dela Torre in an interview with Hong Kong News after the meeting on May 13 of President Rodrigo Duterte Jr. with the Filipino community.
Bello was one of Duterte’s cabinet members who joined the President’s trip to Hong Kong.
The POLO has sought proposals from three companies for the renovation of the office that it is eyeing in Lippo Centre.
