Region 2 to host National PESO Congress

TUGUEGARAO CITY, Cagayan---The Public Employment Service Office Managers Association of the Philippines (PESOMAP) through the PESO Managers Association of Cagayan Valley (PESOMACV) will host the upcoming 17th National PESO Congress according to Director Manuel C. Roldan of the Department of Labor and Employment – Regional Office No. 2 (DOLE 2).




“The PESO Congress, which is one of the most anticipated employment facilitation event in the Philippines, will be held on 4-6 October 2017 at FL Dy Coliseum in Cauayan City, Isabela,” Director Roldan said.




The three-day activity is expected to have 650 or more participants, which consists mainly of PESO Managers throughout the country.  Some LGU and national officials are also expected to participate in the said event.




The DOLE 2 is now closely coordinating with PESOMAP and PESOMACV for the preparatory activities to ensure the success of the event and the comfort and safety of participants.




It was announced last year that the venue for the event will be in Cagayan de Oro City but due to the advent of the Marawi siege and the implementation of the Martial Law in Mindanao, Secretary Bello tapped Region 2 to host the event instead.




The DOLE 2, together with the PESOMAP and Bureau of Local Employment, already conducted initial meetings to plan for the said event.  Ocular inspection of the FL Dy Coliseum in Cauayan City, Isabela where the activity will take place was already done.




Likewise, committees on Transportation, Accommodation, Registration and other working groups were already finalized.




Moreover, the matters regarding transportation and accommodation is what the DOLE’s giving more attention due to the possibility of having scarcity of the available resources if the number of the expected participants will not be properly monitored.




Meanwhile, a Bus Company from Cauayan City already gave its commitment to help in transporting participants to where they will be fostered. Some hotels were also already reserved and closed for exclusive use. Hotels of nearby Municipalities will also be utilized to ensure that all the participants will be housed.




DOLE 2 Regional Director Manuel C. Roldan then challenged all the employees of DOLE 2 to actively participate in the preparatory activities.




“Although this event is not only for DOLE, I urge you to do your best and help each other to make things easier,” Director Roldan added.




The conduct of National PESO Congress is an annual activity to improve employment-facilitation program of the country and to strengthen the partnership of private and public sectors in developing human resources. (END/JVP/RBE)
