The Philippine president said Thursday that a ban on the deployment of workers to Kuwait would continue and could be expanded to other countries where Filipino workers suffer "human degradation".A Philippine labor delegation left for Kuwait Thursday to seek better protection for Filipino workers that may prompt the Duterte administration to lift its ban, officials said.Kuwait's ruling emir has reportedly invited Duterte to his country next month to resolve the labor issues but Duterte has not said whether he will visit.That is often complicated by workers not having proper travel and work documents, such as in Kuwait, where nearly 11,000 of the more than 252,000 Filipino workers are in the country illegally or are not properly authorized.
