PHILIPPINES. Manila Tiimes (27 August 2023) - SAN Miguel Corp. (SMC) and the Technical Education Skills and Development Authority (Tesda) launched a skills-training program that would allow more Filipinos to participate in a New Manila International Airport (NMIA) project and other strategic initiatives in the country.

SMC President Ramon Ang and Tesda Director General Suharto Mangudadatu signed a memorandum of agreement (MoA) that expanded their existing partnership in more provinces to maximize job and livelihood creation and ensure that the benefits of the projects were widespread and shared by many.

Filipinos working at the site were already learning from foreign experts and could be tapped to teach and pass on skills and knowledge to the next batches of workers that would be trained by Tesda and hired by SMC.

The SMC-Tesda partnership, which started in 2020, has expanded to Pangasinan, Laguna and Palawan. Initially, the partnership covered residents of Bulacan, Bataan, Batangas, Quezon Province, General Santos City, South Cotabato and Davao del Sur.

In most of the pilot areas, graduates of the SMC-Tesda program also benefited from housing assistance, which allowed families to build or buy new homes, or in the case of Sariaya, Quezon, resettle in SMC's free housing community.

The SMC-Tesda program was geared toward benefitting displaced workers, returning overseas Filipino workers, senior citizens, persons with disabilities and other qualified beneficiaries.
