Press Release - Pursuing better job opportunities for Filipinos, Bong Go supports TESDA graduates in Pasig City

On Tuesday, June 4, Senator Christopher "Bong" Go provided additional support to Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) graduates who were given scholarships through his collaborative efforts with the Mindtech Training and Development Institute Inc. in Pasig City.

In a video message, Go highlighted the critical role of technical education in fostering a resilient and competitive workforce.

"Empowering our youth through skills development is vital for achieving sustainable and economic growth. These programs represent not just tools but investments in your future," he declared.
