Trabaho pa more: SBMA work force hits 113K mark
Doing increasing investments, the workforce in the Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority (SBMA) has now climbed to 112,653.
SBMA administrator Wilma Amy T. Eisma said that more job opportunities were created due to the 1,536 companies currently investing in the Freeport — a significant 12.76 percent higher compared to 1,340 companies in 2015.
Eisma also said there are 1,093 new accounts that are now being processed by the SBMA.
She commended the top five employers of the SBMA, namely: Hanjin Heavy Industries and Construction-Philippines with 33,296 employees; Nidec Subic Phils Corp. with 5,240 employees; Sanyo Denki Phils. Inc. with 4,011; Tong Lung Phils Metal Industry Co. Inc. with 2,900; and Nicera Phils Inc. with 2,294.
Eisma cited one of the main reasons companies chose to invest in Subic Bay Freeport Zone is that the area is accessible by land, air and sea, which she pointed out is conducive to both tourists and the movement of goods.
Eisma added that the Freeport has a high quality of air and ambience since it is gifted with natural resources, mountains, and water and nature parks.
“We also pride ourselves with the safety and security provided by our law enforcers here. The Freeport has gated entry and exit points,” she said, adding that there are zoning guidelines and restrictions that are strictly enforced.
