BALANGA CITY, Bataan – An outstanding farm management technologist of the country four decades ago has perceived a bountiful and meaningful productive transition of Abucay town from agricultural to industrial and commercial integration in a few years.
The integrated infusion becomes imperative with the proliferation of commercial structures and property leasing firms, real estate subdivisions, hotels, gasoline stations, and other amenities for travel and tourism services.
Ms. Lourdes Levera, 80 a recipient of a plaque of recognition in the national level for being an outstanding farm management technologist of the Bureau of Agricultural Extension (BAEX) and from the Soroptimist International for Bataan National Women’s Heroes, said the ideal geographical location of Abucay town adjacent to the heart of educational and commercial center of Bataan peninsula is virtually a dominant feature on the way to achieve a reasonable and methodical component of generally prosperous community.
Citing the superb successes of two prominent leaders, Bataan Governor Albert Raymond S. Garcia and Abucay mayor Liberato Santiago, Jr. in the field of good governance and public administration in the implementation of substantial road projects and the expansion of Roman Expressway interconnecting the two major thoroughfares in the town has socio-economic bearings on the local economy .
Ms. Levera reiterated the operation of the railroad system from Clark Ecozone to Subic Bay Freeport, the completion of the $ 2.2 billion Bataan-Corregidor-Cavite tollway bridge and the construction of commercial and terminal centers in Roman Expressway would create an excellent business atmosphere in Abucay town.
In a related development, Ms. Levera explained the expansion of the two leading educational institutions in the country, Colegio de San Juan de Letran and Kalayaan College, would foster the socio-economic prosperity, motivating more enterprises to rise up in the upland section of the town, job generation and other travel and tourism endeavors.
