10,000 workers needed in Subic Freeport

The Subic Bay Freeport is in need of more than 10,000 workers to help boost the investment here, Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority (SBMA) Chairman Roberto Garcia announced during a press conference on Tuesday.

With the massive growth in port traffic and more orders being made to Freeport investors, he said the current number of workers here will not suffice.

He added that in ensuring fast processing of containers here, the SBMA needs to double its current number of cashiers.

The shipbuilding company Hanjin Heavy Industries and Construction-Philippines (HHIC-Phil) alone needs 10,000 more workers due to the influx of orders to build cargo vessels, said Garcia. (Jonas Reyes)
