TAIPEI--The Taiwan Land Development Corporation (TLDC) is trying to find 120 people to work in Kinmen to pave the way for the operation of its duty free center scheduled to open later this year on the offshore county.
The job fair, organized by the Kinmen employment center of the Ministry of Labor under the commission of the company, was launched on Wednesday at National Quemoy University in Kinmen.
The duty free center is part of the vision outlined by Kinmen Magistrate Li Wo-shi last year to build the county into a "duty free island" as part of efforts to develop the local economy and tourism.
With improved relations between Taiwan and mainland China in recent years, the island is hoping to attract more Chinese tourists.
According to TLDC General Manager Yang Shang-hui, the 120 job openings are mainly reserved for full-time and part-time workers at the duty free center's six movie theaters that are scheduled to begin operations in mid-April.
Yang urged local residents in need of a job, in particular college students, to apply, as they can work part time at the 4-D movie theaters during their free time.
According to Yang, the duty free shopping center will have a soft opening in June before its official inauguration in late August.
