March 19, 2010 – Officers from the Bids and Awards Committee of the City of Borongan, Eastern Samar came to visit the Municipality of General Trias to personally witness and observe the computerization of our key offices. At hand to welcome them was Mr. Romel D. Olimpo of the Investment Promotion Office. First on the list of their itinerary was a courtesy call to the Office of the Mayor, wherein they were warmly received by Chief of Staff Elpidio Aspuria. After a brief exchange of pleasantries, the group was handed a bagful of Gentri’s Best “pastillas de leche”, compliments of our beloved mayor, Mayor Luis A. Ferrer IV.
The group was then ushered to the Business Permit and Licensing Office (BPLO), Treasurer’s Office and the Assessor’s Office – these are the offices that have adopted the computerization project to help improve and expedite the services being given to our valued clientele. The department heads in the person of Mr. Dennise Columna, Ms. Cecile Tan and Ms. Nelda Moral took time out of their busy schedule to share their views and opinions on the ICT system.
The visit would not be complete without a short tour around the municipal hall, Mr. Olimpo proudly showed them the scale model of the Himlayang General Trias and General Trias Sports Park, two massive projects of the LGU. The group also toured the one and only resort campus in the Philippines, the Lyceum University of the Philippines. The visit was capped off at the newly opened General Trias Dairy Processing Center, where they enjoyed a glass of cold chocolate drink courtesy of the center.
