The Department of Trade and Industry Region 02 headed by Atty. Ma. Esperanza C. Bañares, in its cause to protect consumers against dirty tricks in the public markets, awarded one unit including housing of Timbangan ng Bayan to each of the six municipalities in the province of Quirino. The awarding of these weighing scales which coincided with the birthday celebration of Hon. Gov. Junie E. Cua was facilitated by the DTI-Quirino Provincial Office staff on June 03, 2014 at the Capitol Gymnasium of Quirino. These were received personally by Hon. Mayor Avelino Agustin Jr. of Cabarroguis, Hon. Marlo S. Guillermo of Diffun, Hon. Jerry T. Agsalda of Aglipay, Hon. Renato G. Ylanan of Maddela, Hon. Rosario K. Camma of Nagtipunan and Hon. Marcelina Pagbilao of Saguday.
This program is in accordance with the I-Movers Project of DTI which means Improved Market Operations for Vigilant, Efficient and Responsive Service.
The 10-kg capacity mechanical hanging scale with calibration certificate is housed in a painted, anti-rust cabinet type steel housing with tarpaulin signage and logo of DTI and the concerned municipality.
The Hon. Congressman Dakila Carlo Cua and Hon. Gov. Junie E. Cua, expressed their gratitude to DTI in providing the weighing scales to the municipalities of Quirino.
With this project, each and every consumer is given a “Tamang Presyo, Tamang Timbang!”
