Some 20,000 local male residents are being recruited by business titan Hanjin Heavy Industries & Construction Co., Ltd., of South Korea for its shipbuilding and ship repair projects. Former vice Gov. Ramon Lacbain II announced that Gov. Amor Deloso has created Task Force Hanjin (TFH) to fill up the company's labor requirements. Deloso said the task force chaired by Lacbain is assisting the Korean firm in recruiting job applicants from this province and nearby provinces for the multi-billion dollar shipbuilding projects of Hanjin in Zambales and South Korea. Lacban said that his task force is going around the province to recruit applicants to save them from traveling and spending transportation expenses to Subic Bay Freeport. He said that his task force would continue interviewing applicants at the provincial capitol building and other nearby towns and Olongapo City. [Source: http://ofw.balita.ph]
