Lingayen, Pangasinan – Vice Gov. Mark Ronald DG Lambino lauded the Pangasinan Migration and Development Council (PMDC) officials and members for a successful and productive year during the year-end assessment meeting held on December 13 at the Pangasinan PESO Multi-Purpose Hall, Capitol Complex, here.
“A lot of things have been done, a lot more things will be done, and a lot more things can be done. Basta sama-sama po tayong nagtratrabaho at lahat ng ginagawa natin ay para sa Diyos at para sa Pangasinan. I see bigger opportunities and bigger stars in your outputs come 2024.”
Likewise, the Vice Governor shared some of the significant plans and programs that would improve the lives of Pangasinenses, such as the proposed construction of an OFW Academy in the province.

VG Lambino further disclosed that said program was designed to help our citizens in the labor force and aimed to train them to be ready to work locally and internationally, in particular, in preparation for the job opportunities that will open up in Asia and the Korean Penisula.
On a similar note, Executive Assistant II Ronn Dale Castillo who represented Gov. Ramon V. Guico III acknowledged the efforts and sacrifices of the PMDC as he called for their continued support and commitment to serve even more as the governor tries to push the boundaries and limits of Pangasinan, especially in employment and migration services.
