Every year, the country receives more than three million visitors as tourist dominates the economy.

Just recently the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) is looking for the possibilities that San Marino will be new destination of OFWs particularly for the deployment of healthcare professionals.

DOLE Secretary Silvestre Bello III issued an administrative order that mandates the formation of a team of labor officials that will appraise the viability of deploying Filipino healthcare professionals to San Marino.

It said that after the appraisal, the team will recommend to the labor chief appropriate measures to address identified gaps in Philippine nursing and caregiving training, certification or accreditation to make them competitive and viable.

A draft strategic plan for a viable supply of nursing and caregiving services in San Marino is also expected from the team.
