Dagupan village residents assured of jobs at processing plant

PhotobucketDAGUPAN CITY — Mayor Alipio Fernandez Jr. said the establishment of a seafood processing plant will open up “multitude of employment and other opportunities” even before it is completed early next year.

He said informal settlers at sitio Russia in Bonuan Binloc, who will be affected by the establishment of a $2.2-million seafood processing plant project, will enjoy preference and priority in hiring of laborers and personnel during the construction and eventual operation of the facility in 2010.

Based on the record of discussions between Mr. Seo Dong Sung, Korean International Cooperation Agency evaluation team leader, city administrator Dr. Alvin Fernandez and Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic resources executive director Dr. Westly Rosario, the contractor will optimize the use of local resources, including its manpower requirements, by mobilizing manual laborers among the informal settlers.

Champions of farmers

PhotobucketIn a press release, opposition Senator Francis Escudero said the government should make agriculture one of its priorities to lessen the country’s dependence on imports.

He said Philippine agricultural imports have continued to rise by about 12 percent annually since 2004 when it reached nearly $4 billion.

During the first half of 2008, total agricultural import expenditures reached more than $3 billion, or 12 percent of total import expenditures; among the biggest agricultural imports are milk and dairy products and wheat that account for nearly 25 percent of it.

Nangunguna si Chiz

PhotobucketSa pinakahuling survey ng respetadong IBON foundation, nanguna si Senator Chiz Escudero (16.98%) at pumangalawa naman si Senator Manny Villar (14.64%).

Kamakailan lang, idineklara ni Senator Manny Villar na “kung wala kang isang bilyong piso, ‘wag ka nang sumali sa 2010 presidential race.”

Bilang isang negosyante at pulitiko na pinag-aralan ang takbo ng pulitika sa ating bayan, lumabas sa pagtatasa at karanasan ni Senator Manny Villar na mahalaga ang pera sa eleksyon.

Sa mga nakalipas na halalan sa atin, hindi program of government, hindi karanasan sa serbisyo publiko at hindi rin prinsipyo ang basehan ng mamamayan sa halalan.
