25th National Statistics Month - 11th Philippine Statistical System Tree Planting
PRA joined in the tree planting activity last October 28, 2014 at the Upper Marikina River Basin and Protected Landscape spearheaded by the Philippine Statistics Authority. This is in lieu of the 25th National Statistics Month with the theme "NSM at 25 and Beyond: Solid and Responsive Philippine Statistical System in Support of Globalization and Regional Economic Integration." The activity likewise supports our government's E.O. No. 26 or the National Greening Program.
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).
