Monday, February 17, 2014
EMPLOYMENT opportunities are up for grabs as a multi-trading firm is pouring in P10-million investments in nearby Basilan province.
ABSCOR Multi-Trading Company president Abraham Menor said his firm is opening up an import and export trading business in Barangay Port Holland, Maluso, Basilan.
He said they will hire at least 150 personnel for the ABSCOR Maluso branch.
The firm, he added, is into import and export of marine products, construction materials, groceries, and scrap metals.
Menor said they transact business in some areas in Brunei, Indonesia, Malaysia and the Philippines that are under the East Asean Growth Area, more commonly known as the BIMP-Eaga.
He said ABSCOR aims to strengthen the economy of the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (Armm) and the whole country.
Aside from Basilan, Armm comprises the provinces of Lanao del Sur, Maguindanao, Sulu and Tawi-Tawi.
Menor said they are also seriously looking into the manufacturing sector, to include the processing of seaweeds, which ABSCOR can export. (Bong Garcia)
