Philippine Consulate General Hong Kong: Workshop On Women, Remittances and Debt

| April 5, 2016

 PCG Workshop On Debt

A workshop in observance of the National Women’s Month was held last 20 March 2016 at the Philippine Consulate General of Hong Kong.

Entitled ‘Kababaihan, Perang Padala at Utang’ or Women, Remittances and Debts,’ the workshop was spearhead by Dr. Joy Tadios-Arenas, lecturer at City University of Hong Kong and a director of WIMLER-HK, a financial literacy program in the city.

Dr. Tadios-Arenas focused on gender, remittances and loans/debts. She also described the role of Filipinas in ways that have allowed them to become more than just breadwinners in their own families but also on how they must handle their growing loans/debts.

Her findings are based on her doctorate Hong Kong research thesis on Migration and Gender Studies (Retirement Migration, Labor Migration) at the City University of Hong Kong that was conducted in 2011 to 2014.
