Ceza and Tesda cooperates to boost skilled workers in Cagayan Valley
Leander C. Domingo | The Manila Times
PHILIPPINES. The Manila Times (04 Febraury 2023) - The Cagayan Economic Zone Authority (Ceza) has forged ties with the Technical Educational and Skills Development Authority (Tesda) Region 2 (Cagayan Valley) to help elevate technical vocational (tech-voc) education and training for skilled workers in the region.
Under a memorandum of understanding (MoU), Ceza and Tesda Region 2 intends to support Tesda's role as the tech-voc education and training authority in the Philippines.
Ceza is a government-owned and controlled corporation that was created by virtue of Republic Act 7922, otherwise known as the "Cagayan Special Economic Zone Act of 1995.″
Tasked to manage and supervise the development of the Cagayan Special Economic Zone and Freeport (CSEZFP), Ceza was authored by Senator Juan Ponce Enrile, a native of Cagayan Province, and approved by then President Fidel Ramos.
Ceza noted that under the MoU, the competency assessment and certification of workers in pursuit of professionalizing skilled workers will be elevated.
The MoU was signed in January this year by Ceza Administrator and CEO Jaime Escaño and for Tesda Region 2 director Archie Grande.
Escaño said this understanding entails the provision of space within CSEZFP that will serve as the site for tech-voc trainings and seminars conducted by Tesda.
He added that this also involves the donation of second-hand motor vehicles in the custody of Ceza to Tesda which will realize the partnership's objectives.
Escaño said the donation will provide additional tools that can supplement Tesda's tech-voc program for motor vehicles.
Secondly, this action also gives better justice to the affected vehicles, as they are put to good use, instead of getting rotten in the impounding area.
On the other hand, Tesda shall determine the motor vehicles suited for their program.
Ceza public relations chief Joyce Marie Jayme-Calimag said this undertaking with Tesda is part of Ceza's efforts to continuously work with other private and public organizations in making growth strides for the Cagayan Valley region.
