Leni Robredo should not be left stagnant if she only continues what the Office of the Vice President prioritized during the Aquino administration when these sectors were put in last. Outgoing Vice President Jojo Binay is actually hoping that Robredo would continue his OFW and Housing advocacies.
As you can see, Overseas Filipino Workers are one of the main driver of the Philippine economy – and yet overseeing their welfare abroad is just one of the many jobs of OWWA. This sector needs either one of the two top officials of the government. Like for example in the Middle East, the Kings will not talk to no one except the President or the Vice President.
She can also be the presidential adviser on Overseas Workers’ Affairs (OWA) like Binay. OVP Official Martinez commented that she will be perfect in taking over the tasks of V.P. Binay – instead of insisting on her own advocacies.
