ANGELES CITY -- This city added another feather to its cap as it was adjudged a winner during the Property and Real Estate Awards Night of the FIABCI-Philippines, held recently at the Marriot Hotel, Pasay City.
The award is given under the Public Infrastructure/LGU Amenities Category, which refers to projects financed and developed by the local government units through public funds like government buildings, hospitals, road, bridges, airports, stadium and other infrastructure projects that aim to provide amenities to the people.
Mayor Edgardo Pamintuan received the trophy and plaque of appreciation in behalf of the City Government.
“Our administration has always been ahead and proactive in providing basic social services with the aim of raising the quality of life of the people through facilities and public utilities that provide quality services and amenities,” Pamintuan said.
“We are not even aware that there are award-giving bodies that look into these projects and it is really a great surprise to all of us that our initiatives and hard works are being recognized,” the mayor added.
