PEZA partners with two provincial universities to kick-start future drive

The Philippine Economic Zone Authority (PEZA) signed partnerships with Technological University of the Philippines (TUP) in Visayas and University of the Cordilleras (UC) to launch a drive expanding special economic zone activities in different provinces.

TUP Visayas offered a three-hectare site in Talisay City, Negros Occidental to use as a knowledge and innovation park for research and technology projects.

Meanwhile, the collaboration with Baguio-based UC “serves as a framework for mutual benefit in the creation of ecozones to facilitate, promote, and accelerate economic development in the countryside.”

PEZA stated last Monday that, “(The university is) embarking on this frontier of becoming an economic zone to develop the university’s real estate properties that shall systematically improve people’s standard of living.” 

UC President Nancy M. Flores commented, “The collaboration of academia and government is a must to meet labor demands and work-based competencies… This aims to increase students’ employability and leverage its positive impact on the community.”
