Described as ‘Little Urduja House’, the said building, according to the provincial chief executive, shall become a source of inspiration of the provincial government officials and employees and Pangasinenses whose hard work, effort and professional expertise catapulted the province to receive various awards.
“The building where the awards and citations received by the province will be enshrined is a due recognition to all Pangasinenses,” Gov. Espino said, adding that the second floor of the Abong na Dayew will also feature a function area which could be used by small group of people.
Meanwhile, a smaller and simplier version of the Sison Auditorium, the Pangasinan Training and Development Center (PTDC) II with an area of 50.00m x 30.00m = 1,500.00 sq.m. will soon rise at the PTDC compound.
The PTDC II is twice bigger than the old PTDC which has an area of 877.00 sq.m.
“Parami nang parami ang pumapasyal sa Pangasinan kaya nagkukulang ang ating mga facilities for conventions lalo na kung nagkasabay-sabay ang ating mga bisita,” said Espino, who pointed out that the construction of two more edifices at the Capitol Complex will be maximized to accommodate visiting delegates attending various conventions or events hosted by the provincial government. /Mark Gerry Naval Oblanca
