COTABATO CITY—The Ministry of Labor and Employment (MOLE) held a groundbreaking ceremony Tuesday, Sept. 28, for the construction of a three-storey one-stop-shop service building inside the Bangsamoro Government Center in this city.
Worth Php11.4-million, MOLE Minister Romeo Sema said the building will provide constituents easier access to the ministry’s programs and projects.
Some services from the Professional Regulation Commission, Social Security System, PhilHealth, and Philippine Statistics Authority will also be available in the building.
“Dito po natin ilalagay ang lahat ng mga partnered agencies ng MOLE para doon sa mga requirements ng mga Bangsamoro Overseas Filipino Workers at iba pang services,” Sema said.
“Napakalaking tulong nito sa mga kababayan natin lalo na yung naghahangad na makapagtrabaho sa ibang bansa dahil hindi na sila mahihirapan pumunta sa iba’t ibang agency kasi dito na napaloob sa one-stop-shop,” Sema added.
According to the minister, the facility is part of the milestone programs and projects of MOLE which are anchored to the 12-point priority agenda program and ‘moral governance’ advocacy of BARMM Chief Minister Ahod Ebrahim.
Building contractor Curve Line is expected to complete the project by March 2022. (Bangsamoro Information Office)
