of the people of Pangasinan
LINGAYEN --- Gov. AmadoT. Espino, Jr. has assured the JJGPK Co. Ltd., a Korean investment corporation headed by Mr. Kang Hee Jung, of the province’s full cooperation on whatever investments the Korean investors would have in the province.
“We assure you that we will give our part to your efforts on whatever good intentions you have for our province,” the Governor said as he thanked them for showing much interest to the province of Pangasinan as their choice place for investment.
Gov. Espino also told the Koreans during a farewell dinner hosted by the provincial government recently that they are most welcome even as he stressed that the relationship between the province and the Koreans will continue forever.
The JJGPK group is now on its 5th visit to Pangasinan to carry out plans for the establishment of various feasible investments here.
The investors together with the broadcast staff of Money TV Network, one of the biggest broadcasting networks in Korea, conducted an ocular inspection on the proposed sites for their projects during their brief visit here.
Some of the projects they have proposed are the development of an eco-tourism zone in Barangays Sabangan, Estanza, Malimpuec and Capandanan in Lingayen.
The JJGPK proposed to help develop the eco-tourism zone where the design for the project is now being prepared by a highly respected architect of Korea who will present the masterplan to Gov. Espino in August.
The proposed projects include the establishment of a retirement village in Lingayen.
The JJGPK also plans to put up a call center which shall operate as a Knowledge Process Outsourcing. It will be an online tutorial center for Koreans who would like to learn English as their second language.
Other proposed projects include the establishment of a surplus center, chicken dressing plant and a cold storage.
The farewell dinner proved to be a night of positive moods which spelled a bright and promising future both for the province and the Korean investors who were here to pursue their investment interests.
Mr. Jung said they are confident that the big investments will help the province of Pangasinan as it will provide thousands of jobs to many Pangasinenses.
Towards this end, the Korean group of investors thanked the Governor and the leadership of the provincial government for their warm accommodation even as they pledged their support to Gov. Espino’s administration. (PIO/Angeline D. Villanueva)
