La Union Again Wins Awards

SAN FERNANDO CITY, La Union - For the third time in a row, La Union was adjudged as the cleanest, greenest, and safest province in Ilocandia.

The recognition was presented by the Region 1 Development Council during the Annual State of Regional Development Conference in Bauang, La Union. National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) Region 1 Director Juan Ngalob handed over the award to La Union officials led by Gov. Manuel C. Ortega on Tuesday.

Ortega said the award affirms the "unity of all officials and residents who cooperated with each other to make La Union a model province."

The Cleanest, Greanest and Safest Province (CGSP) Award is a regional search that recognizes significant contributions of provinces that serve as example in the promotion of clean, healthy, and safe environment.

La Union also bagged the championship trophy for Coastal Resource Management and Second Runner-up title for its "PRISM II" in the Search for NGO-LGU Project Based Practices.
