LAOAG CITY — In coordination with the Provincial Government of Ilocos Norte (PGIN), the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA) will roll out the OWWA Rebate Program (ORP) on September 25-27 at the Provincial Capitol Auditorium, Laoag City.

The OWWA Rebate Program is in compliance with Section 67, Rule IV of the Implementing Rules and Regulations (IRR) of Republic Act No. 10801 which aims to recognize the long-time members through granting of rebates and financial assistance.
