Skilled workers wanted
Jackson Gan, vice president of the Federated Association of Manpower Exporters, said the government can avoid the effects of a looming world recession if it will quickly fill up the job orders.
“The lack of experienced manpower for the vacancies above should be the government’s first priority as the country continues to receive hundreds of thousands of job order for professionals and skilled manpower.
Gan said the government should set aside additional training funds for the Technical Education and Skills Development Training and the Department of Education subsidies for vocational schools.
He added legislators can provide regional training centers from the countrywide development funds for their constituents’ training and knowledge for in demand jobs like welders, electricians, machinists, mechanics and many others. Journal Online
