Wednesday, May 2, 2012
CITY OF SAN FERNANDO -- The Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) has cited the excellent performance of Pampanga in the recently concluded Employment Permit System–Test of Proficiency in Korean (EPS-Topik).
In a letter addressed to the Provincial Government, POEA Employment Branch Director Jocelyn Sanchez said the province garnered the highest EPS-Topik passers.
Pampanga has a total of 2,119 passers followed by the province of Cavite with a total of 746.
Passing an EPS-Topik is a primary requirement in getting legal entry and employment by any Filipino in Korea, Sanchez said.
It can be recalled recently that Governor Lilia Pineda, through the Pampanga Public Employment Services Office, assisted the Korean Language Test passers in terms of discounted price of medical examination in selected venues in the province.
Earlier, the Provincial Government coordinated with various clinics duly accredited by the POEA to facilitate the medical and physical examination of those who passed the said examination.
