Mar 19, 2019 @ 9:13

Senator Sonny Angara has urged local government units (LGUs) outside Metro Manila to look to Lipa City, Batangas as an example of success.

Based on government data, Lipa City is home to 20 percent of Batangas’ industrial establishments. With 427 companies doing business in the city, there are more jobs available to residents.

As of 2016, local government records showed that Lipa, whose population is over 300,000, is home to 10 BPOs employing thousands of workers.

“Totoo naman po na kahanga-hanga ang kwento ng tagumpay sa syudad ng Lipa—magandang ekonomiya, maraming mamumuhunan at masaganang trabaho,” Angara said.

“I hope that other urban centers outside Metro Manila would be encouraged to follow the achievements of Lipa City.At kung dumating po ang pagbuhos ng mga negosyo, sana po ay handa rin ang ating mga workers para sumabak sa trabaho,” he added.
