Employing Filipinos



Filipinos move the world!  Filipinos have gained the reputation of being resilient and proficient in English.  Because of these qualities, Filipinos are present all over the world, employed in various occupations and helping the world economy.  We are in your homes, factories, offices, schools, ships, hospitals, and research centers. 



If you wish to hire Filipino workers and professionals to work in Taiwan, the MECO is here to help you.  MECO can also assist you in hiring Filipinos for your businesses in the Philippines or any other location in the world.  MECO maintains a listing of Filipinos who have had experience working with Taiwanese companies.  Working with other government agencies, we can help you find the perfect fit for your needs.
