Gov. Guico eyes establishment of Pangasinan Trade Center

Lingayen, Pangasinan – Governor Ramon V. Guico III seeks the establishment of the Pangasinan Trade Center following the recent success of the Manila Fame and International Food Expo (IFEX), which opened the door to more opportunities for various local entrepreneurs.

The governor has expressed eagerness and is optimistic about pushing the project, which will eventually further bring economic prosperity and sustainability to the province.

For this dream project to be realized, Gov. Guico sought the support of the Sangguniang Panlalawigan, headed by Vice Gov. Mark Ronald DG. Lambino.

Let us coin the term Pangasinan Trade Center, the governor told SP together with the department heads.

He also called on PEDIPO, an investment promotion office, to further promote or market the province as a place for investors.

“Kasi yung ating Provincial Economic Development and Investment Promotion Office (PEDIPO) is an investment promotion office. Yun naman ang magdadala dito ng mga malalaking investors like San Miguel, Aboitiz,” the governor said.

A Pangasinan Trade Center will be integral to boosting the province’s economy, considering that the present administration’s priority thrust is to create greater opportunities that will fuel economic growth, benefiting Pangasinenses.

The initiative and plans from the governor were welcomed with great optimism and gratitude, as this will demonstrate the province’s potential in terms of investments, businesses, and development.

With the rise of the Pangasinan Trade Center, the province will be able to further support MSMEs in introducing and promoting their products in the global market.

‘More than the financial returns is the exposure and the fact that we have reached the milestone of being participants. That’s already a breakthrough for all of us because most of us do not know how to get there, but I believe that we are on the right track. This is the first phase of what we should do in the longer term to promote our products and businesses,’ the governor said.
