Most Influential Filipinos in the Gulf: Hon. Ofelia B. Domingo – Trailblazer


Labour Attache


It ain’t easy being Labour Attache, but through her hard work, experience, and results-oriented leadership style, Madame Ofelia Domingo almost makes it look easy. A reformist at heart, she has implemented several strategic changes that vastly improved the operations of POLO-OWWA on a cellular level. One such accomplishment: she initiated the development of POLO-DUBAI portal that houses the online submission and evaluation of documents for the accreditation and approval of job orders of principals and agencies. She also conceptualized  and implemented the Dubai EntrePinoy Reintegration Program that involves both the OFWs in Dubai and the returned OFWs in the Philippines.  The organic rice project of the Reintegration program is a social project aimed to liberate the famers from the bondage of debt. It also promotes savings and investment with social responsibility among the OFWs in Dubai and the Northern Emirates.
The Labour Attache’s challenge to the Filipinos abroad: to live up to the image of a Modern Day Hero. It shouldn’t be so difficult, with role models like her around.
