Olongapo Skills Training Featured in ABS-CBN NEWS

The preparations being undertaken by Olongapo City under the leadership of Mayor Bong Gordon was featured by ABS-CBN NEWS BANDILA during its report last night over Channel 2. News Anchor Henry Omaga-Diaz detailed the experience of former US Military Base Worker's hopes to land a job in Guam after having lost their jobs in the former US Naval Base in Subic when it pulled out in 1992.

Mayor Gordon stressed that the preparations were initiated after his visit to Guam during the Industry Forum and where the impending transfer of 8,000 Military personnel and their families will commence on 2014.

Guam Task Force headed by Ed Piano was created to ensure coordination with POEA, DOLE, TESDA, DFA, GovGuam, contractors, manpower agencies and applicants are facilitated.
