Polo moves back to United Centre this Sunday

11 September 2020

By The SUN

ConGen Tejada and Labatt Dizon cut the ribbon to open the new Polo office 

Filipino migrant workers with transactions at the Consulate and its attached labor office will be doing their business in just one building, the United Centre in Admiralty, once again starting this Sunday, Sept 13.

This is due to the relocation of the Philippine Overseas Labor Office to the 29th floor Office B of the same building where the Consulate owns and occupies the entire 14th floor.

The new Polo premises were inaugurated yesterday afternoon, Sept 10 by Consul General Raly L. Tejada and Labor Attaché Melchor B. Dizon in a short ribbon-cutting and blessing ceremony attended by their officers and staff. Fr Jun Jacobe administered the religious rite.

ConGen Tejada welcomed Polo’s return to United Centre in a message on the Consulate’s Facebook page.

“This enables the PCG and its attached offices to continue delivering efficient services while providing greater convenience for all Filipinos living and working in the territory,” he said.

“This represents the Philippine government’s commitment to meet the increasing demand and expectations of the Filipino community which is now the largest ethnic minority in Hong Kong.”

As of July 31 this year, there were nearly 210,000 Filipino domestic workers in Hong Kong, the main users of the two offices’ services.

Polo’s return to United Centre makes it convenient for workers to do business with both government agencies as they no longer have to walk several blocks to and from either office when processing their papers.

Filipino workers immediately welcomed the move.


“Salamat naman po mga beloved Sirs and Madams. At least yong mga tulad naming tumatakas sa amo eh di na pahanap-hanap pa kung saan ba ito, saan ba yan. At least iisa na. Congrats po at mabuhay kayong lahat,” said Minda Capacap in her comment on Facebook.

POLO moved out of the United Centre offices it shared with the PCG and into the 11th and 16th floors of the Admiralty Centre Tower 1 on Mar 1, 2015.

But after the building management there raised the rent, then Labor Attache Jalilo dela Torre decided to move the Polo offices to the 16 and 18th floors of Mass Mutual Tower, now YF Life Tower, on Lockhart Road in Wanchai.
