SAMAL, Bataan — A Taiwanese investor is putting-up a state-of-the-art livestock farm in Barangay Imelda here with investments of about P300 million, Mayor Aida Macalinao announced Tuesday.
She said that construction of infrastructures will start after Friday’s groundbreaking of the project at a 33-hectare area in the village.
Investors John Lu and son Johnson, owners of Green Era Bio-Tech Corp. with the mayor led the simple groundbreaking rites of what they described as the first fully air-conditioned and environment-friendly piggery farm to rise in the area.
Macalinao said she has informed Gov. Albert Garcia, 2nd District Rep. Jose Enrique Garcia III, and 1st District Rep. Geraldine Roman about the project, and were all happy for the flow of economic development in the town despite the pandemic.
The mayor said that the three leaders gave full support to the project and expressed the hope that more investors will put their business in the peaceful town.
“This is not only added revenue for our municipality but additional employment opportunities for our residents,” Macalinao said.
