A Japanese shipbuilding/ship repair facility at the Salvacion Port in Hinobaan is expected to create 5,000 new jobs in the southernmost town of Negros Occidental, Hinobaan Mayor Ernesto Estrao said yesterday.
Estrao said the signing of a memorandum of understanding by Gov. Alfredo Marañon Jr. with Tsuneishi Heavy Industries Inc. (THICI) in Tokyo yesterday during the visit of President Rodrigo Duterte to Japan will pave the way for the construction of the facility that is expected to start early next year.
