PEZA set to approve 27 new projects worth P2B

Philippine Economic Zone Authority (PEZA) General Director Charito Plaza has announced that the PEZA Board is set to approve 27 new projects with a total cost of P2 billion and projected employment of 3,694.

In an online presser, Plaza said PEZA continues to be optimistic despite the decline in investment pledges in the first four months of the year.

Additionally, Plaza said that to help accelerate development in the country, PEZA is launching the Development Outreach for Labor, Livelihood and Advancement of Resources (Human Resource, Technical Resource, Natural Resource and Financial Resource) program, or also known as the Peza Dollar program.

The program, which is part of PEZA’s new 10 programs and special projects, is in line with President Rodrigo Duterte’s Balik Probinsya (Back-to-Province) program.
