During a small ceremony held yesterday, August 1 in Binondo, Manila, TESDA Secretary Guiling “Gene” A. Mamondiong, and FFCCCII President Domingo H. Yap, signed a Memorandum of Agreement formalizing a partnership that seeks to develop the capabilities and competencies of the Filipino workforce through suitable training and industry exposure.
