AN INVITATION TO THE FILIPINO COMMUNITY AND ORGANIZATIONS IN DENMARK  ————————————-  

Greetings from the Commission on Filipino Overseas (CFO)!   The CFO is an agency under the Office of the President which was established on 16 June 1980 through Batas Pambansa Blg. 79 to strengthen ties with Filipinos overseas and promote their interest and welfare. It envisions a community of well-respected and proudly competitive Filipinos overseas who contribute significantly to the productivity and  well-being of the countries where they reside or work while maintaining strong political, economic and cultural ties with the Philippines.  

We are pleased to inform you that Mr. Michael A. Apattad from the CFO’s Migrant Integration and Education Division will be in Denmark from September 30, 2012 to October 8, 2012 for a study visit and explorative meetings.  

These activities aim to:

 (1) Obtain first-hand information, and insights from his meetings with the officials and members of Filipino associations in Denmark. This would supplement the CFO’s Pre-Departure Orientation, Guidance and Counseling Program and Country Familiarization Seminar for Filipino emigrants and au pair participants;  

(2) Establish, sustain and enhance linkages with Filipino associations and community migrant welfare organizations in Denmark with the aim of strengthening the support network for overseas Filipinos; and 

 (3) To promote the programs and services of the Commission specifically the Youth Leaders in the Diaspora (YouLead), and Diaspora Philanthropy: Lingkod sa Kapwa Pilipino in Denmark.   In view of this, we would like to invite representatives from organizations for a scheduled Round Table Discussion with different Filipino organizations in Denmark on October 5, 2012, Friday, 17:00 – 22:30 at Lille Sal, St. Anne Church, Amager.
