After groundbreaking various projects in Aurora last week, Senator Edgardo J. Angara expressed his optimism for continued international collaboration and public-private partnerships in his hometown.

Last week saw the inauguration of various livelihood projects like the Aurora Multi-Species Fish Hatchery and Nursery, infrastructure developments such as the Bazal Bridge in the town of Ma. Aurora, new buildings for the province's schools, as well as the groundbreaking for the fully equipped, 50-room Aurora Memorial Hospital in Baler.

"Thanks to the generosity of our Asian neighbors, the province of Aurora will be able to enjoy an improved road system, better access to medical facilities and better training for health personnel, as well as more opportunities for livelihood once these projects really take off. All of this happened in a few short years because of the cooperation between the public and private sectors," he asserted.

In his speech at the inauguration of the new two-storey building in the Aurora National Science High School campus, Aurora Representative Juan Edgardo "Sonny" Angara acknowledged the great role of Public-Private Partnerships (PPPs) in the advancement of the province.

"All of these programs are perfect examples of PPPs at work. In fact, we here in the province of Aurora have been tapping the private sector for financial assistance in these projects even before the change in government--this is why we are happy that the Aquino administration is giving this movement the attention it deserves," said Rep. Angara.

According to the veteran lawmaker, the success of these programs scattered all over the province should be attributed to both the leaders and the people of Aurora.

"The incredible rate of progress in Aurora is a testament not just to the leader's initiatives in spearheading these projects, but more importantly, the people's willingness to advance their community's way of life," said the senator.
