From the Department of Budget and Management

The Department of Budget and Management (DBM) reported that a total of P30.8 billion is allotted to fund 86,994 unfilled positions in government, contrary to the 190,000 positions reported in media recently.

The latter figure comprises the Staffing Summary of the 2015 National Expenditure Program (NEP), which shows the number of permanent positions per agency and the amount required for these positions. The 2015 NEP reported that there are 1,433,186 permanent positions in government, and that 86 percent (or 1,244,931) are filled while 188,255 are unfilled. However, of this amount, only 86,994 unfilled positions can be provided for based on the funding requirements of agencies for 2015.

During the Philippine papal visit of Pope Francis, the role of and challenges faced by our overseas Filipinos were acknowledged and recognized.

In his first ever message  in  the country before high government officials, the diplomatic corps and guests in Malacanan Palace, Pope Francis referred to the "oft-neglected contribution of Filipinos of the diaspora to the life and welfare of the societies in which they live."
