BALANGA CITY, Bataan – Newly appointed SBMA Director, former Congresswoman Herminia Roman, in an interview said that she will look after the welfare not only of Bataan but also of the whole Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority (SBMA) for it to be more progressive.
Roman said that her assumption as SBMA Director will give her a wider perspective on the different programs of the freeport, especially it being a popular location for investors and tourism. She added that from here she’ll help in bringing more ideas for SBMA as a friendly investment hub.
More investors means more jobs according to Roman, which boils down to more employment to the people of Bataan and adjacent provinces and definitely more progress for SBMA.
It will be remembered that it was Cong. Roman during her term as representative of the first district of Bataan, who filed a bill in Congress raising the percentage share of the three towns in Bataan within the jurisdiction of SBMA, however it was blocked at the Senate due to question/issue on geographical area versus population but she is still hopeful that this will be refiled by her daughter, incumbent Congresswoman Geraldine Roman.
Former Congresswoman Herminia Roman took her oath as new SBMA Director before Judge Selma Palacio Alaras last Tuesday (April 16, 2019) in a simple ceremony in Makati City.
