Government Owned or Controlled Corporations Dividends Day
PRA General Manager & CEO Peter Anthony A. Abaya hands over to President Benigno S. Aquino a check amounting to PhP 1.2 Billion representing the PRA’s dividends for the year 2013. Marking another record year for the PRA, the said amount upholds the Agency’s thrust of increasing the nation’s resources and accelerating development. Also in the photo are Vice President Jejomar C. Binay and PRA Chairman Roberto T. Muldong.
The PRA and the Metro Pacific Tollways Corp. (MPTC) recently launched EasyDrive, making the Cavitex the first tollway in the country to use radio frequency identification (RFID) technology. By using the paper-thin battery-less sticker, a motorist can save more travel time by having only to slow down, not make a full stop, to pay their tolls. Present during the launch were PRA Chairman Roberto T. Muldong (second from right), Luigi L. Bautista, President & CEO of Cavitex Infrastructure Corp., Atty. Joselito D. Gonzales of PRA, Toll Regulatory Board Executive Director Edmundo D. Reyes, Jr., and MPTC President & CEO Ramoncito S. Fernandez (standing from left to right).
