At the 2nd Joint Committee Meeting KSA and PH agree to reduce process cycle time, automate procedures on recruitment of Filipinos for Saudi Labor and Employment Secretary Rosalinda Dimapilis-Baldoz yesterday welcomed the report of Undersecretary Danilo Cruz saying the Philippines and Saudi Arabia have arrived at a number of agreements during the 2nd Joint Committee Meeting under the Agreement on Domestic Worker Recruitment, held in Riyadh last week. The first Joint Committee Meeting was held in Manila last year. "I am happy to note the report of Usec. Cruz which underlined the strength of the bilateral relations between the Philippines and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia on matters involving OFWs. I welcome the salient points of their discussions during the 2nd Joint Committee Meeting, particularly the agreement to further reduce the process cycle time (PC) in OFW documentation and the agreement to further enhance the existing 24-Hour Assistance Center established by the Saudi government to receive household service workers' complaints," said Baldoz. Undersecretary Cruz reported that during the meeting, the Philippines informed the Saudi government that the Philippines's Department of Health is intent on reducing its PCT to complete medical examination results from five (5) to only three (3) days, thereby reducing the entire PCT from 16 days to 14 days.
