Mayor Carmelo “Pogi” Lazatin, Jr. shows his support to the joint program of the Department of Tourism Region 3, led by Director Richard G. Daenos, Luzon International Premier Airport Development (LIPAD), headed by CEO Noel F. Manankil, and Clark Development Corporation represented by OIC Manager Elenita Lorenzo in promoting the best of the Philippines in Japan, where the city government sent products of the OTOP (One Town, One Product) store and its coffee—the Kape Angeleño.
Dubbed “Japan Tourism Roadshow,” the initiative is a vital platform for showcasing the country’s tourism potential in forging connections between global travelers and enhancing destinations yet to be discovered.
Tokyo Ambassador Mylene J. Garcia-Albano is among those who received the OTOP souvenirs and the Kape Angeleño.
Part of the flagship programs of the Lazatin administration is to promote locally-made products, providing a venue to market them to a larger audience.
The city-run store OTOP and Café Kapebaluan are both priority projects of Mayor Lazatin, assisting local merchants and farmers in their livelihoods.
