CITY OF MALOLOS - Initially, 10,000 Bulakenyos will benefit from the Bulacan Pilot Project by Hasegawa Business Solutions (HBS) International come March this year.

HBS International Chief Executive Officer Yukio Hasegawa made this announcement along with his business companions from Japan during the Launching and Press Conference of the Bulacan Pilot Project held at Balagtas Hall in Hiyas ng Bulacan Convention Center, City of Malolos yesterday morning.

According to Bulacan Gov. Wilhelmino M. Sy-Alvarado, aside from transferring Japanese technologies to the Bulakenyos, the said pilot project also aims to put more investments in Bulacan.

Hasegawa said he noticed the geographical and human resources potential of Bulacan which made him realized that the province is the best place to venture in international businesses.

“Nowadays, it is very difficult to commute in Manila. You spent an hour or two just by commuting in Manila alone. Unlike here in Bulacan, you are just an hour away from Manila, very accessible. Your province is the best,” Hasegawa said.

He said that they are planning to start different projects in Bulacan that includes KS Method Language Center, Incubation Project, Filipino IT-Engineer to Japan, Filipino Caregivers and Nurses to Japan, Multi-Lingual Call Center and Agricultural base.

The CEO also said that while still working out to have an automobile design center in the province, they will dispatch Bulakenyos to Japan for automobile design training.

Hasegawa also praised the graduates of the Bulacan State University.

“Graduates of Bulacan State University especially the engineers are very excellent compared to other universities in the Philippines. This doesn’t mean that other universities aren’t good. We did hire from other reputable universities also it was just that after their trainings, Bulacan State graduates skills did extremely well compared to the others,” Hasegawa said.

Further, Prof. Etsuro Kawamura of KS Method Dissemination Foundation, Inc. added that KS Method Language Center made a program wherein students will easily learn the Japanese language in only 300 hours instead of 4,500 hours. The said language center will open here either in March or April this year.

Meanwhile, Alvarado expressed his gratitude to Hasegawa and company for choosing Bulacan to be the pilot province for their project.

“Thank you HBS international for your interest and for taking notice that the province of Bulacan is clearly on the right economic path. Arigato gozaimasu! We are looking forward in working with you,” the governor said.

Also present in the launching and press conference were Mr. Osama Imamura of Global Fostrage Inc. and Mr. Masanobu Yamamoto of Yamamoto Gakko, Vice Gov. Daniel R. Fernando, Board Member Ramon Posadas, Bulacan director of the Department of Trade and Industry Zhorina Aldana, media, department heads and employees of the Provincial Government. ###
