She also warned those present that in the ASEAN, competition will be intense and the need to be in one’s toes has never been more urgent.
PD Liza ended her message with a profound definition of luck as, “The intersection of preparation and opportunity.”
The Honorable Susan Yap, in her special message, revealed that Tarlac is in the process of becoming the home of national government agencies with the completion of Clark’s Green City and the eventual transfer of the government’s head offices.

Huge smiles abounded that day.
