Bilateral Labor Agreements and MOUs for domestic workers signed in last 10 years

Requested from POEA by Krisha Cabrera at 06:45 AM on Mar 12, 2020.
Purpose: Research on best practices of BLAs and MOUs
Date of Coverage: 03/01/2010 - 03/01/2020
Tracking no: #POEA-861628307326

Krisha 06:45 AM, Mar 12, 2020

Hi,
 
I would like to request copies of the BLAs, MOUs, addendums and protocols that the Philippines has signed over the last ten years regarding the protection of OFWs in labor migration. The POEA has two websites with links (http://www.poea.gov.ph/laborinfo/agreement.html and http://www.poea.gov.ph/laborinfo/bLB.html), but all of the links are down. Additionally, they don't include the recent agreements the Philippines has negotiated and signed in the last two years.  Can you please fix the links or send copies of the agreements?
 
Thank you,
KC
