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.

Albay Gov. Joey Salceda, the RDC chair, said the projects, to be known as the “Convergence Program on Enhancing Tourism Access in Bicol,” were endorsed by the RDC and would be prioritized in 2013 by the Department of Public Works and Highways.

The road projects include the improvement of the Tabaco-Malinao-Buhi Road in Albay (P591 million); President Cory Aquino Boulevard and two bridges in Camarines Norte (P450 million); Iriga-Buhi Road in Camarines Sur (P368 million); and the Virac-Pajo-Antipolo-Igang Road in Catanduanes (P75 million).
