Palawan Capitol celebrates 117th anniversary of province’s civil government
The Palawan Capitol has celebrated the 117th anniversary of the establishment of the province’s civil government last June 23.
This year’s celebration was “simpler” compared to the activities held in the previous years.
“Gayunpaman, bilang suporta sa anibersaryo ay nagkaroon ng iba’t ibang makabuluhang aktibidad kabilang ang Trade Fair sa isang mall sa Puerto Princesa sa pangunguna ng Provincial Economic Enterprise and Development Office at Department of Trade and Industry mula noong June 17-23, 2019,” the province said.
“Pangunahing layunin ng proyekto na maipamalas ang mga locally made products (processed foods at handicrafts), fruit trees, flowers at ornamentals ng mga Palawenyo. Nagsagawa rin ng Jobs Fair noong ika-18 ng Hunyo kung saan ay umabot sa mahigit 400 na job seekers ang naserbisyuhan ng Provincial Public Employment Service Office,” it added.
The Amos Ta Run was also held last June 23 as part of the celebration of the Baragatan Festival.
Meanwhile, the BIMP-EAGA ICT CEO Forum, and Livelihood Exchange Conference and Exhibit were also held.
“Nagsagawa rin ng simultaneous thanksgiving mass sa mga major municipalities’ po natin like Roxas, Aborlan and Brooke’s Point bilang pasasalamat sa 117th Founding Anniversary nang pagkakatatag ng ating Civil Government… Bagaman wala po tayong malaking selebrasyon, nasa puso naman po ng bawat Palawenyo yung pagiging Palawenyo natin…,” said Ceasar Sammy Magbanua, Provincial Information Officer.
