Pangasinan Governor Amado Espino III has promised to continue supporting the Pangasinan Chess Festival.
The event was first launched by his father, former governor and representative Amado Espino Jr.
The Pangasinan politiko said everyone can participate in chess.
“Isa po ang chess sa mga sports na walang piniliping edad, walang pinipiling timbang at wala ring pinipiling laki ng katawan,” Espino said.
He also said he is happy with the sport’s growth in the province.
“Ako po ay natutuwa dahil parami po kayo nang parami,” Espino said.
