TAGAYTAY City, April 10, (PIA) –Delegates from the academe, industry and government in country’s seven pilot sites for a foreign assisted competitiveness project in the regions uttered and signed commitments to support the Cities Development Initiative (CDI) in a bid to make more growth nerve centers outside Manila.

Dr. Nenita Palmes, Vice President for Extension of the Mindanao University for Science and Technology, Marissa Segovia, President of the Iloilo Government Industry Academe Council and Arnel Campued, TESDA Palawan took brief moments and stood before the CDI Development Fair delegates to italicize their sector’s support to CDI. 

And from their cue, delegates from Batangas, Ilo-ilo, Palawan, Bohol, Pampanga, Cagayan de Oro and Zamboanga also penned their names and sectoral representation in a tarpaulin wall inside the posh Phinma Conference Hall in Tagaytay City. 

Implemented as an after-effect of the floated need to make industries globally competitive in the advent of Asian integration, CDI is largely a partnership development initiative among government, industries and academes in a move to let industries into the helping decide which academic to offer to fill in the most needed and vacant positions which cant be filled due to lack of appropriate skills. 
Over this, the tri-sector collaboration commits to make significant changes in the courses offered in schools, the necessary level of competencies as well as draw the line which can be a turn-key solution to the problem of unemployment and under-employment which is pervasive in the local landscape. 

By commitments, those in the academe said they would look into their learning modules to tightly fit only those most immediately needed by the demands from the industry. 

On the other hand, the government through Technical Education and Skills Development Authority commits to make the necessary adjustments to define their competency ratings in tune with those agencies and industries most immediately needed skills.

The industry also committed to coordinate with the academe for their needs, making sure that these are communicated well so that the training institutions can come up with the appropriate skills that would come up to the challenge. 

USAID said the CDI pilot areas like the seven provinces: Batangas, Iloilo, Bohol, Cagayan de Oro, Pampanga, Zamboanga and Palawan are envisioned to become new growth centers aside from the already blooming nearby regional centers, to effect inclusive growth. (rac/PIABohol)
