A visiting retired Australian Defense Industry (ADI) electrical technician Noel Quiroz of Barangay Burgos, Pilar town, is truly surprised with the commercial and industrial
progress of Bataan as compared two decades ago when he saw the Castillan landscape of the Balanga City plaza, shopping malls, hotels, educational institutions, and fast-food restaurants all intended for the convenience of the residents and visitors.
Quiroz, once employed as a journeyman of the Ship Repair Facility (SRF) of the former American Subic Bay Naval Base in Olongapo city described the rapid urbanization phase of the province was undeniably the upshots of conscientious and well-researched strategic plan of the late Bataan Rep. Enrique Garcia, Jr.; Governor Albert Raymond S. Garcia, then Balanga City Mayor and now Congressman Jose Enrique S. Garcia 111 of the 2nd district and all public and private officials seeking the best services for Bataan residents and locators.
He stressed as the province is efficiently expanding as commercial, industrial and educational centers; the local officials have also undertaken broader eco-industrial preparation focusing on the effective solution on traffic, construction of quality road network and other social, health, educational and other amenities needed by the growing community.
The commendable role of the local officials of continuously searching for better productive and suitable programs in alleviating the plight of the residents would spearhead the growth of the province, Quiroz said.
