MORONG, Rizal – the role of the local government is basically to protect and promote the interest of local folks, says Senator Bong Go even as he recognized what he described as an exemplary job undertaken by the municipal government in fostering local entrepreneurship and providing small business owners a platform to thrive.

During his visit, Go vowed to sustain support for various local projects in the province of Rizal, including the newly renovated public market in Morong, which he inspected last week.

Before proceeding to his scheduled event, the senator from the south took the opportunity to inspect the market, underscoring the critical role it plays in the community's development. According to Go, the newly renovated public market is more than just a place for buying and selling goods. It is a hub of economic activity, fostering local entrepreneurship and providing small business owners a platform to thrive.

To support local development, Go authored and co-sponsored Republic Act 11960, also known as the One Town, One Product Philippines Act, which formalizes the OTOP Philippines Initiative. The program aims to support the expansion of MSMEs (micro, small, and medium-sized enterprises) across the country.

The OTOP Program identifies and promotes unique products from different towns and municipalities. By doing so, it not only fosters entrepreneurship but also harnesses local resources while preserving the country's cultural heritage. This approach helps micro-businesses gain visibility, access markets, and enhance their competitiveness, contributing to economic resilience.

Accompanied by Rizal Governor Nina Ricci Ynares, Vice Governor Junrey San Juan, and Mayor Sidney Soriano, Go personally spearheaded a relief activity for disadvantaged students in the town.

Taking a cue from what four provincial governors in the Calabarzon region did in 2019, Mayor Soriano presented a local council resolution officially recognizing Go as an adopted son of the municipality.

The local government cited that the senator has played a pivotal role in ensuring that the welfare and development of Morong remain at the forefront of his agenda, marking a notable impact on the community's advancement.
