Puerto Princesa Port Manager Receives Another Award
General Manager Atty. Oscar M. Sevilla recently announced the recognition bestowed by the City Government to PPA Puerto Princesa Port Manager Mr. Luis A. Cuison.
The Philippine Ports Authority (PPA) GM Atty. Oscar M. Sevilla recently announced the recognition bestowed by the City Government to PPA Puerto Princesa Manager Mr. Luis A. Cuison.
Port Manager Luis A. Cuison was conferred the Mayor’s Award during Puerto Princesa City’s 137th Foundation Day last March 4, 2009 in grateful recognition of his contribution to the environmental campaign of the City through his management of PPA facilities under the Puerto Gwapo Program and the honor/prestige he brought to the City in winning as the nation’s “Most Environment Friendly Port,” among others.
His individual contribution as founder/organizer of PPA’s Puerto Gwapo Program has further enhanced the image of the City as a premier destination not only for seafaring tourists but to the rest of local visitors. The City Government has included the port in their guests’ itinerary as one of the showcases of its Clean and Green Program.
The Philippine Ports Authority as a matter of policy puts premium on establishing rapport with and providing support to programs of LGUs which are mutually beneficial as in the case of the Clean and Green Program. This became a regular feature of the PMO’s Plans and Programs, participating in coastal clean ups and reforestation activities at the City’s watershed (Pista Y and Kagueban) and at coastal areas (mangrove reforestation).
PMO Puerto Princesa’s Clean and Green efforts intensified during the past three earning recognition from the City Government and in July 2008 the Most Environment Friendly Port Award from the PPA management. All these took place during the term of Port Manager Cuison, translating to action PPA’s mission of sustaining development of our port communities and the environment.
The Mayor’s Award is conferred by Mayor Edward S. Hagedorn to individuals who rendered their voluntary services contributing to the development of the City of Puerto Princesa.
PM Cuison shares the honor of the Mayor’s Award with his staff, PPA management and the port community without whose support the feat could have not been achieved.
