Zubiri visits Albay to inaugurate coop building
Senator Juan Miguel Zubiri met with the cooperative sector and educational assistance beneficiaries in the province of Albay, as he turned over projects and donations in Camalig and City of Legazpi.
The Senate majority leader graced the inauguration and blessing of the Albay Provincial Cooperative Building in Camalig.
Built through Zubiri’s legislative amendments in the national budget, it is the first cooperative building in the province, which will be available for the use of local cooperatives looking for a place to hold their meetings, trainings, seminars, and other activities.
“Hindi niyo na po kailangang maghanap ng lugar sa labas. This building is completely yours to use,” Zubiri said, addressing the cooperative sector representatives at the inauguration.
“Naniniwala po ako sa kakayahan ng coop sector na tulungan ang ating mga kababayan na umahon mula sa kahirapan. As I always say, cooperativism is about helping the Filipino help themselves. And with this building, I hope lalo pong lumakas ang coop movement dito sa Albay, para masmarami po tayong matulungan, hindi lang mga miyembro ng koop, kundi pati rin po ang iba’t ibang komunidad dito sa Albay.”
Apart from the Albay Provincial Cooperative Building, Zubiri also had an inspection of other projects in Legazpi City, including the Legazpi City Exhibition Center, also spearheaded through his institutional amendments in the national budget.
