MAMBAJAO, Camiguin, March 23 (PIA) – The local government unit of Catarman in Camiguin received a hanging weighing scale with steel cages under the “Timbangan ng Bayan” or the Weighing Scale of the People Project through the Office of the Congressman and the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) Camiguin Provincial Office on March18, 2016 at the Catarman Public Market, Camiguin.
With the “Tamang Timbang, Tamang Presyo at De-Kalidad na Produkto,” “Timbangan ng Bayan” is a project of DTI in partnership with the Office of the Congressman to promote consumer welfare and healthy business environment, as well as to ensure the consumers get the best value for their money through accurate weights and measures of goods bought.
DTI said this is the third hanging scale that was turned-over by DTI to LGU-Catarman since last year and timely as the province expects more visitors and devotees in the island in time for the lent observance, known to many as the “Panaad” or a religious vow of sacrifice.
District Representative Xavier Jesus D. Romualdo and DTI-Camiguin, Provincial
Director Joselito S. Enot formally handed the weighing scale to Mayor Nestor A. Jacot along with the other local time officials.
In addition, DTI also turned over the one unit platform beam type weighing scale to the LGU Catarman which can weigh heavier agricultural products such as tuna fish and live pigs. (Zita M. Abellare with reports from Eric L. Aranas, DTI-Camiguin, PIA Cam iNet)
