Gov’t firms, state university sign deal to boost Chinese skills

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.
