TESDA signs joint agreement for ‘Agri-Negosyo’ program

  • by

A joint memorandum circular (JMC) has been signed between the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) and other institutions to help returning Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) who have lost their jobs abroad through the “Agri-Negosyo para sa OFWs” program.

Agri-Negosyo para sa OFWs is a one-stop-shop of information for OFWs which will introduce agri-business; provide investment opportunities; assist in crafting business plans and studies; facilitate access to financing programs, trainings, available technology; and build network linkages.

The JMC was signed by the Department of Agriculture (DA), National Economic Development Authority (NEDA), the Department of Science and Technology (DoST), and the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) to implement the unified action of the agencies for the integration of government programs and services in agri-business to address the urgent need for sources of livelihood and gainful employment of repatriated OFWs and develop the agriculture and fisheries sector.
