    VP Leni to woo Cebu with jobs plan

    VP Leni to woo Cebu with jobs plan

    Vice President Leni Robredo is set to visit to Cebu on Thursday, February 24, as a presidential candidate with a jobs plan to present to the voters.

    Following a two-day visit to Northern Mindanao, Robredo will meet with Cebuano volunteers and supporters, religious groups, and members from various sectors, as well as attend people’s rallies, to thank her supporters and outline her plans if elected President.

    Providing jobs to the people, especially those affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, is the core component of Robredo’s “Hanapbuhay Para sa Lahat” plan, which seeks to provide employment for all Filipinos by harnessing major industries in the country. They are technology, manufacturing, maritime, and climate industries.

    In an earlier visit to Cebu City, Robredo met with leaders from the IT-BPO sector and vowed to work on a comprehensive plan for the country’s tech industry. Cebu has nearly 200,000 workers in the IT-BPO sector. Robredo also said her administration will prioritize worker upskilling.

    Eco-tourism is another source of income for Cebu. Robredo will advocate for the development of green industry to protect the environment and create jobs in the region. Local government units will also receive technical assistance in making green development a pillar of their local development plans.

    Former Supreme Court Chief Justice Hilario Davide Jr., his son and namesake, Cebu Vice Governor Hilario Davide III, and the Cebu-based local political party Bando Osmena Pun dok Kauswagan (BOPK) of former Cebu City Mayor Tomas Osmena, whose wife, Margot, who is running for mayoralty post this election, have all endorsed Robredo’s presidential bid.

    At least 20 groups in Cebu have joined forces in what they call the "Maka-Leni sa Sugbo," and they come from a variety of sectors, including the youth, labor, banking, transportation, and even passengers. They are rallying behind Robredo after seeing the earnest work she has done for the people.

    Despite its meager budget, the Office of the Vice President (OVP) has implemented a total of 276 projects in 41 local government units in the province of Cebu totaling P59.3 million.

    The OVP has also distributed P20 million to three hospitals in Cebu City, Mandaue City, and Talisay City as part of its Medical Assistance program, as well as 370 sacks of rice worth over P190,000 to Cebu City's homeless as part of its Relief Assistance initiative.

    In the aftermath of Typhoon Odette last December, Robredo visited Cebu less than 48 hours after the storm hit. The OVP provided affected families in Cebu and other hard-hit provinces in Visayas and Mindanao with Shelter Repair Kits, which they can use to begin rebuilding their homes. [End]
