If the proposed Smart City Project is fully realized, more job opportunities shall be available not only for the new graduates and young professionals but even for mothers who could get engage in livelihood opportunities with the expected influx of workers and tourists.
Mayor Felipe Antonio Remollo met with representatives of women’s organizations, KALIPI, Local Council for Women and VAWC officers to share the information on the concept and the long and tedious process that the proposed Smart City Project has to undergo and accomplish before it will be granted approval by concerned national agencies and by the local government.
Our officials will make certain that local workers will be prioritized for job opportunities in the proposed Smart City Project unless the skills and qualification of given position is highly technical then the project proponent can recruit from the neighboring provinces or NCR.
Mayor Remollo reiterated his belief that the protection of the environment and the need for sustainable economic growth can actually be balanced for the benefit of the people through projects that will help reduce joblessness, poverty and brain drain caused by the lack of opportunities.
