“For this reason, we are drafting NERS as an expanded medium-term Trabaho, Negosyo, Kabuhayan blueprint for decent employment and entrepreneurship in the ‘new normal’ so that we can achieve a ‘Better Normal’ for our country,” said Trade secretary and chairman of Task Force NERS Ramon Lopez.
The employment plan aims to enhance the effectiveness of each of the policies and programs, and to more efficiently achieve the strategic national objectives, he said.
The strategy brings together various measures, programs and institutions that influence the demand and supply of labor, as well as the functioning of labor markets. These, Lopez said, will restart economic activities, restore business confidence, upgrade and retool the workforce, and facilitate access to labor markets.
