Presidential Communications Secretary Martin Andanar made the statement after welcoming the rise in the country’s global ranking in developing homegrown human resources.

“With the increasing demand and competition in the labor market for skilled professionals, Filipinos have the capacity, talent, resourcefulness, and creativity to be competitive and meet the desired capabilities needed by employers,” he said.

“We will continue to address challenges that hinder personal, educational, and professional growth as well as foster an environment where the retention of talent in the Philippines is fully realized through necessary programs, reforms, and policies,” he said.

He said the government would also collaborate with the private sector “to continue making Filipinos competitive in the labor market, as well as making the Philippines wholly equipped and capable of producing highly-skilled individuals, and making the country a home for them and their skills.”

“This will continue to be a priority for the government and will be among President Duterte’s lasting legacies,” he added.

The Philippines secured the 49th spot out of 63 countries in the 2019 World Talent Ranking (WTR), jumping six notches from 55th place last year. The countries are ranked based on ability to attract, develop, and retain a talented pool of human resources.

Andanar said the government has taken measures to enhance Filipino professionals’ capability such as making education inclusive and accessible through its Republic Act No. 10931 or the Universal Access to Quality Tertiary Education Act.

He said the Commission on Higher Education (CHED), Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA), and Development Academy of the Philippines (DAP) have also carried out complementary programs to promote technical skill development and retention.

To help make the country an attractive place for skilled professionals, he said the government has implemented the Tax Reform for Acceleration and Inclusion Act (TRAIN), Build, Build, Build (BBB) Program, and Universal Health Care (UHC) Act.

“With these programs in place, we see that the quality and level of Filipinos’ talents will become even more competitive against regional and global peers over the long run,” he said.
