After his departure from Israel, President Duterte has arrived in Jordan for another historic visit. This is the first time that a Philippine president would visit the country since 1976.
As invited by His Majesty King Abdullah II, Duterte will meet the King and then he will be attending a business forum.
As reported by GMA News, there have been many business deals to be signed between Philippines and Jordan. The agreement includes a $10 million deal, government relations, labor, defense and foreign affairs.
In a press briefing, Foreign Affairs Undersecretary Ernesto Abella stated, “The agreement provides that the recruitment and employment of Filipino domestic workers will be governed by a standard employment contract and other measures that will ensure the protection of the rights and welfare of workers,”
Once business deals have been signed, this will open more career opportunities for Filipinos. It has been recorded that as of last year, around 40,000 Filipinos have been working in Jordan.
The president will be in Jordan until the 8th of September.
In a previous report by KAMI, President Duterte has closed 21 business deals with Israel. The done deals will open 790 job opportunities for Filipinos.
