He cited the many programs, prime of which is “Tulong Panghanapbuhay para sa Ating Displaced/Disadvantaged Workers”, through which DOLE served as a catapult to uplift the lives of many.

Sec. Bello III agreed with Sen. Recto. He commended Director Tan as well and challenged DOLE-BPO's staff to deliver better services to its clients.
