Two businessmen from Japan recently visited the Bacolod City Government Center (BCGC) during a visit to the city, where they are looking to recruit workers.
Koichi Shiode and Shimpei Kitsukawa discussed the matter with Bacolod City Councilor Bartolome Orola, where they indicated the industries seeking workers included construction, healthcare, and shipbuilding.
The businessmen also noted they were particularly looking for welders and factory workers.
Earlier this month, BCGC hosted Bacolod-Japan Friendship Day, which included performances by MassKara Festival dancers, Philippine folk dancers, and an acoustic band.
The observance is in accordance with a city ordinance that mandates the Bacolod-Japan Friendship Day take place during Obon, a Japanese festival that commemorates those who have passed./DGB, WDJ
