ILOCOS Norte Governor Ma. Imelda Josefa “Imee” R. Marcos extended assistance to Ilocos Norte overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) in Saudi Arabia. She travelled to the Middle East as part of Pres. Rodrigo R. Duterte’s delegation. Ms. Marcos supports President Rodrigo R. Duterte’s commitment in intensifying OFW assistance through creating a national agency addressing OFW cases and concerns. At least 61% of families in Ilocos Norte are being supported by OFWs, making the province one of the highest dollar remittance recipients in the country.
