PANGASINAN is one major push away from attaining better economic progress only if “it has a leadership that could provide new vision for the future,” according to Mark De Guzman Lambino.
The 36-year-old Lambino, a candidate for vice governor in the province, said he is looking at an innovative new technology that would make Pangasinan “a smart province and a more inclusive growth and development center” for Northern Luzon.
“New infrastructure and ecozones will provide a way to the future of the province,” said Lambino.
Lambino is eyeing the construction of a Pangasinan-Nueva Ecija Expressway from Bolinao, Pangasinan to San Jose City, Nueva City.
Also in his wish list is an international airport in Alaminos that could perk up commercial and tourism-oriented businesses in Northern Luzon.
The young Lambino, who is engaged in consultancy services, trading and information technology, said that projects that provide livelihood and could generate jobs for Pangasinan’s youth are among his priorities.
He said he would also establish linkages with the Philippine Economic Zone Authority (PEZA) and other government agencies aimed at creating industrial parks in San Fabian, San Nicolas, and the Sual Industrial and Technology Park.
Lambino is the son of Secretary Raul Lambino, CEZA administrator and CEO and concurrent presidential adviser for Northern Luzon, and Marylin De Guzman.
