Another award for Calapan; new roads in 4 Bicol provinces

Calapan City has been given an award for having a top performing employment office in the recently concluded 12th National PESO (Public Employment Service Office) Congress. Calapan City won the award for the second time.

Mayor Paulino Leachon, in a statement, said he is lauding the Department of Labor and Employment’s award to Calapan for having one of 67 institutionalized PESOs in the country. “The award inspires us to give our best,” said Leachon.

In 2005, the city council passed an ordinance institutionalizing the creation of PESO to generate more jobs. Leachon has vowed to bring more jobs and investors to Calapan.

The Bicol Regional Development Council (RDC) has approved and endorsed to the National Economic and Development Authority (Neda) Board P1.4-billion in tourism road projects in four Bicol provinces.
