It will be an advantage if the applicant has experience in dealing with different kinds of clients and has the willingness to render overtime service if needed, she added.

The conduct of CPBI aims to collect and generate information on the performance, levels, structure and trends of economic activities of the formal sector in the entire country for the year 2012.

This is the 15th in the series of economic censuses conducted in the Philippines.

The last economic census was the 2006 CPBI conducted in 2007.

Perdiz said the census will cover manufacturing establishments, wholesale and retail trade, auto repair shops, motorcycles and personal and household goods, hotels and restaurants, transport, storage and communications, among other businesses. (PNA) LAP/FGS/DOC/CBD/SSC
