It is expected that the new building will meet the increasing demand of clients seeking skills training from TESDA.
"This office building is not only for TESDA regional office but also for Davao City and Davao del Sur,” Villanueva said in a statement.
“More importantly, this is also for the thousands of youth in the region who are in technical vocational education and training (TVET), and those who want to get into TVET as their path towards employment," he added.
TVET is well and vibrant in Davao City and the whole region, which also hosts a number of industries run by skilled workers such as the business process outsourcing industry.
The government of South Korea through the Korea International Cooperation Agency funded a training center in the city that offers various courses.
TESDA acquired the newly-inaugurated building through a lease-purchase scheme that was approved by the agency's board last year, Villanueva said.
"TESDA spent for the new center optimistic that it is a good investment in the long-run. Any improvement in the education of our youth is always a worthy investment," he stressed.
