The Authority of the Freeport Area of Bataan, under the leadership of its Chairman/Administrator Deogracias G.P. Custodio recently met with TESDA Bataan and the National College of Science and Technology (NCST) to explore the formulation of programs to strengthen the Bataan work pool to address current and potential job requirements in FAB.
“The challenge right now is to ensure a steady stream of local qualified workers with high productivity levels who can be immediately hired,” said Chairman Custodio. “We are now in the process of developing a system where the work force is in sync with the current and future demands within FAB to guarantee immediate hiring,” he added.
The Authority of the Freeport of Bataan Chairman Deogracias P. Custodio signed the Joint Memorandum Order, Memorandum of Agreement, and Implementing Rules and Regulations along with the Bureau of Immigration OIC Ronaldo P.

The signing is another milestone in the transition of the former Bataan Economic Zone into the AFAB. The signing of the JMO, MOA and IRR will facilitate a more efficient procedure for work permits and visas for foreign nationals working with AFAB locators. It will also serve as the foundation of the one-stop shop that the AFAB seeks to establish to service its locators.
