AABOT sa 500,000 job opportunities ang iaalok ng ride-hailing service firm na Grab Holdings, Inc., ayon sa Malacanang nitong Huwebes.
Ito ay matapos makipag-usap si Pangulong Bongbong Marcos sa mga opisyal ng Grab na pinangungunahan ng chief executive officer nito at co-founder na si Anthony Tan sa Malacanang.
“During the meeting, Anthony Tan, Grab CEO and co-founder, promised to create jobs in the country, assuring the President that his company will deliver,” ayon sa press statement na inilabas ng Palasyo.
Labis namang ikinatuwa ng pangulo ang pangako ng Grab.
“Well, that is what we need. At the very start of all of this, we had always stressed that what we have to do is create jobs right now. Because so many businesses closed, so many people really have no place to go, even the OFWs (overseas Filipino workers). So, we need to find jobs,” ayon sa pangulo.
“That’s why I’m in a hurry. If we can roll this out as quickly as possible. And I know the way Grab moves, they move very, very quickly. Because you’ve done it so many times before. In the scale, you don’t have to scale it. You’ve scaled it already.”
Hiniling din ng Grab sa pangulo na payagan na ang pagsasalegal ng motorcycle taxis matapos na sumailalim ito sa pilot test sa nakalipas na apat na taon.
