Cavite – PEZA Director General Charito Plaza on Thursday led the ceremonial signing of the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between PEZA and the two colleges, PUP Maragondon and STI-Rosario. This was held at the Cavite Economic Zone (CEZ) in Rosario Cavite last June 24, 2021.
 

Joining the Director General was Atty. Norma B. Tañag, Zone Administrator of CEZ, Dr. Agnes Y. Gonzaga representing PUP Maragondon and Mr. John Michael P. Cells, representing STI Rosario.

Special Economic Zone (SEZ) Institute

The MOU signifies the commitment of these two colleges and PEZA to create a Special Economic Zone Institute (SEZ Institute) in the locality, which is one of the pioneer program of the Authority under its Transformation Roadmap that is being pushed by PEZA under the leadership of Plaza.

In the SEZ Institute Program, PEZA partners with different Universities and Colleges, both public or private, in order to provide the necessary education skills and training for the Filipino people as they prepare to enter the labor force and fulfill the needs of various export-industries in the country.

“PEZA underscores the value of harnessing Filipinos’ skills, talents, and employability by taking steps to provide opportunities for education and training in order to produce world-class workers that are multi-knowledge and multi-skilled and ready to work in industries,” said the PEZA Chief.

“Our Filipino workers are sought after by many foreign investors because they are young, dynamic, intelligent, equipped with global-knowledge and skills and can speak English well. This is one of the reasons why a lot of companies choose to invest in the Philippines because they are confident that the workers we produce are equipped with the necessary skills to match the needs of their business,” Plaza explained.

STI-Rosario is one with the goal of PEZA and is committed to support its SEZ Institute program in order to help provide various educational programs/courses that will help hone the skills of their students.
