Bataan Gov. Albert S. Garcia bared during his valedictory address on Wednesday that the provincial government in particular and the nation in general is facing challenges brought about by inflation.
Garcia who took his oath of office before Executive Judge Marion Jacqueline P. Poblete as incoming congressman of Bataan Second District, however, expressed optimism that Bataan can handle the challenging situation because of the new administration under newly-elected President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos, Jr. and Vice President Sara Duterte both have trust and confidence in his leadership.
“Maganda ang pagtingin nila sa Bataan lalo na si Vice President Duterte, at nandiyan ang national government agencies na handang makipag-partner sa atin,” said the governor.
One of Gov. Abet’s important legacies is the construction of “The Bunker” which houses different national and provincial government agencies to promote the One-Stop-Shop scheme to ease up business transaction among clients.
He explained that the Bunker does not only symbolize the heroism of Filipino soldiers who fought for freedom and democracy. It also stands for unity and strength to render public service to our fellow Bataenos and give us all a good quality of life.
