TO RECOVER from the effects of Covid-19 pandemic, the Provincial Government of Nueva Ecija, in cooperation with SM Supermalls, is now promoting tourism of its capital, Palayan City.
Tourism, local products and advance emergency response equipment were displayed on the first Town of the Month Exhibit at SM Megacenter, which will run from May 17 to 31.
Carolyn Licup, assistant mall manager of SM Megacenter, said their mall is the top choice of the locals during this time of pandemic as one-stop-shop destination to buy everything they need at home.
She said the exhibit is another way to bring the tourism closer to the public, to promote local products and disaster preparedness information from other cities and municipalities in one safe venue.
“It is like a space that you can travel to the beautiful Palayan City without literally going there because the best of them was already exhibited here. In one venue, people will be able to know more about the city or municipality to be featured,” said Licup.
Mall goers will see the information about the City of Palayan, the vibrant colorful pictures of tourism destinations like the historical Fort Magsaysay and Boy Scout of the Philippines Camp Site, the relaxing view of Aulo Dam and Pahingahan Complex, the adventure to look forward at Kukwit Falls and other gastronomical surprises that this city can offer.
Palayan City also has its world class design Business Hub, the first IT Economic zone comprised with government building, BPOs and hotels.
The City Government also features the advance equipment from the City Disaster and Risk Reduction Management Team that the Palayanos is very proud because of their active preparation to all kind of disasters throug
h actual drills, trainings and seminars.
Palayan City was also known for their local products which serves as source of livelihood for the locals like their calamansi juice, fruit wine, fruit vinegar, turmeric powder and honey ginger lemon.
The ribbon cutting was attended by Vice Mayor Moises Carmona Jr., City Council members and city department heads.
Sheen Eugenio, public relations manager of SM Cabanatuan, invites shoppers to drop by at the lower ground of SM Megacenter and witness the beauty of Palayan City.
