QUEZON City Mayor Joy Belmonte was gratified by the statement directly from President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. who tagged the city as the model for the national government’s programs owing to its best practices and swift response to the recent price hike on basic commodities, among others.

“We have to thank siyempre ang ating mga LGU dahil sila talaga ang nag-take ng initiative nito and again to Mayor Joy Belmonte who was one of the first to put up Kadiwa, mabilis siyang nag-respond agad noong nagtataasan na ang presyo,” the President said.

Quezon City hall is one of at least 20 sites nationwide taking part in the flagship project of the Marcos administration, aimed at providing a market to the country’s local agriculture producers and giving the public access to affordable and quality products.

Of course, the mayor was thankful to the Chief Executive for having the city as part of the national government’s program.

“Lubos kaming nagagalak dito sa Lungsod Quezon dahil isa ang QC sa mga piling lungsod na kabahagi ng programang “Kadiwa ng Pasko” na pinangungunahan ng ating minamahal na Pangulo at ng Department of Agriculture. We will continue to regularly provide avenues for food producers to sell their goods directly to our QCitizens.”

She then assured the public that the local government will continue to find ways to offer cheap but quality food and non-food items amid rising prices of basic commodities.
