May 25, 2021

Tayug Mayor Carlos Trece Mapili commended Governor Amado I. Espino III for launching noteworthy undertakings like Pamanang Yaman, Produktong Pangasinan which the former dubbed as “grassroots project.”

In a courtesy call by the PYPP team during the visit of the rolling store in Tayug town on May 24-25, Mayor Mapili said that the project along with the other activities being undertaken by the Espino administration amid the Covid-19 pandemic, deserved to be applauded since all undertakings redound to the benefit of the people specifically those at the grassroots.

“I salute Governor Espino for this project and for his concept to go to the grassroots,” Mapili stated.

In reaching the grassroots community, one of the main program launched by Gov. Espino is Abig Pangasinan, a special activity that encompasses several activities to include the PYPP.

Commending the provincial government, the Tayug mayor noted that all towns and cities in Pangasinan have their own unique products as he cited that Tayug which is an agricultural area mainly produces rice and corn.

In stating this, Mayor Mapili said that with such programs and projects, Pangasinenses are able to know what specific products are famous in a particular town or city.

Launched in October last year, PYPP has one more town to go before its first round will be completed. The rolling store’s last stint will be on May 27-28 in Sto. Tomas town, the home of the longest corn grill.

With more than P6 million sales since its launching seven months ago, PYPP has become an instrument for the local Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) to get back on track after badly affected by the pandemic.

Meanwhile, Tayug resident Cyrus Costelo thanked the provincial government for bringing the various Pangasinan products in their town.

Another town resident, Eduardo Benitez, also commended Gov. Espino for conceptualizing projects like the PYPP. “This is a very good project. Pangasinan products coming from different parts of the province are promoted,” he said.

The second round of the PYPP will start in the coming weeks and will revisit all the towns and cities in the province. (/Ruby R. Bernardino  / Photo by MVS)
