Ties with UAE excellent - Filipino official

posted on 23/08/2005: 589 views


A senior Filipino diplomat yesterday described relations between the UAE and the Philippines as excellent, adding that the consulate is working with Dubai authorities to address all issues involving Filipino expatriates. "The relations are excellent," Consul General Generoso Calonge told Gulf News. He was commenting on a report that a local party in the Philippines, called the Migrante Sectoral Party, has asked the Philippines Government to file diplomatic protests with the UAE because it claims Filipino domestic workers are mistreated here. The problems some Filipinos encountered were routine, Calonge said. "In any situation where there is a huge number of people, there is always some part of the population who are in trouble."



Gulf News last week reported that the number of runaway Filipino maids seeking shelter at the Labour Office shelter had doubled to 60 in a month. However, Calonge confirmed yesterday that the consulate is working with Dubai authorities to quickly return the women to the Philippines. The consulate estimates about 2,000 Filipinos enter the UAE monthly in search for jobs. More than 200,000 Filipinos are living and working in the UAE, according to consulate figures. (The Gulf News)
