Two free ports in Central Luzon have signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the Confucius Institute – University of the Philippines Diliman (CI-UPD). Clark Development Corporation (CDC) president Noel Manankil, lawyer Wilma Eisma, administrator of the Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority, and UPD-CI chancellor Michael Tan entered into an MOU for a three-year training program. It is hoped that this agreement will help attract more Chinese investors and tourists. Under the agreement, CDC’s officers and front line staff will receive free basic training in Mandarin courses and culture. Manankil said the basic training is part of CDC’s human development program designed to help employees improve their communication skills, as well as increase their knowledge of the modern Chinese way of doing business. In September alone, about 4,000 Chinese tourists aboard a cruise ship visited Clark as part of their tourism integrated program of Central Luzon.
