Bataan Gov Garcia confident in province’s economic growth
Bataan Governor Albert Garcia expressed confidence on the economic growth of the province.
On his Facebook page, Garcia said Friday that Bataan’s inflation rate of 1.9 percent, as of October 2018, is the lowest among the provinces in Central Luzon.
He also cited Bataan’s inclusion in the country’s top 10 ranking in terms of the 2018 City/Municipality Competitiveness Index, and topping even in the province category.
The indicators were reported during the 2nd Provincial Development Council full meeting on Thursday in Balanga City, attended by Garcia and local chief executives.
“I think, with these data reported about the inflation rate, affordable price commodities, and top performing local government unit, Bataan is growing economically better,” Garcia said.(END)
