PIA Press Release

Oro mayor wants more skills trainings for Cagayanons

Cagayan de Oro City (13 September) -- WITH more investors coming to Cagayan de Oro City and nearby towns in Misamis Oriental, City Mayor Constantino G. Jaraula wants the Cagayanons to equip themselves with skills that will make them more competitive.

Mayor Jaraula made this pronouncement as the Lim Ket Kai Corporation is now starting their 18-storey hotel in the middle of their commercial complex, while Hanjin Heavy Industries at the PHIVIDEC area also needs 1,800 employees for their plant and Koresco Hotel is expanding its business.

Mayor Jaraula said that with the mushrooming of giant investments here, the Cagayanons are set to benefit from the employment opportunities that will arise from such investments, thus, the need to enhance the present education system to include skills training in schools.

The city chief executive pointed out that it is only appropriate for the city government to respond to the overwhelming confidence expressed by the business community in the economic potential of the city by providing a ready pool of highly-skilled and highly-educated manpower.

Along this thrust, Mayor Jaraula is set to establish a partnership with TESDA, Xavier University and Mindanao Polytechnic State College to provide skills training program for the Cagayanons especially the out-of-school-youth and the unemployed.

Early this week, the National Anti-Poverty Commission (NAPC) turned-over to the city government the P1.5-million Kalahi Center--a livelihood training center situated at the Calaanan Resettlement Site in Barangay Canitoan.

Mayor Jaraula said that the Kalahi Center can greatly help his vision to empower and capacitate the residents at the Calaanan relocation site to become highly skilled workers.

Mayor Jaraula envisioned the Calaanan Relocation Site to be a showcase of effective local governance for the entire country, as a program that truly addresses the needs of the people in the community. (Cagayan de Oro City IO/PIA-MisOrOccCam i-Net) [top]
