At least 100,000 jobs will be opened in the job fair organized by the Philippine Economic Zone Authority (Peza), as part of its efforts to provide employment to displaced employees and repatriated overseas Filipino workers (OFWs).
PEZA Director General Charito Plaza said the job fair is meant to provide employment opportunities to workers who lost their sources of income due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The job expo is one of the five components of the Development Outreach for Labor, Livelihood and Advancement of Resources, or DOLLAR, program,
According to Plaza, more than 60,000 jobs are now secured to be made available for the launch on Monday, while another 30,000 are being discussed by the Peza with its locators. Close to 20,000 jobs will also be opened when the 26 newly approved projects of the PEZA become operational.
