Shipbuilding giant hires 6,900 Filipino workers

This is good testament to President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo’s 8 by ’08 priority agenda, particularly that of creating more jobs and investment enhancement, among others.

More than 30,000 direct and indirect jobs are expected to be generated as Hanjin Heavy Industries Corp.-Philippines goes full blast in its operations in Subic. To date 6,900 workers are already employed, about 4,000 of who are skilled workers hired during the pre-operations and construction stages, DTI Upbeat informed.
