Pangasinan will establish a local salt center to develop research and boost the production of salt.
In an interview Thursday, September 22, Pangasinan Governor Ramon Guico III said he is eyeing the establishment of the salt or “asin” center to be attached to the existing Center for Pangasinan Studies through a provincial ordinance.
“The name of the province came from salt, hence it is the very heart and soul of the province as the largest salt beds in the country are from the province. We really need to help the industry,” the Politiko said.
He added that this project will focus on research and developmental studies to improve one of the province’s main commodity.
“The PSU’s and the salt center’s research output will be implemented so that the approach to the dilemma at present could be addressed based on research and evidence,” Governor Guico said.
