LAOAG CITY, May 3 (PIA) – Laoag City is set to receive on May 11 a national award as one of the  chosen Top 10 Model Cities of the Philippines by The Manila Times, the country’s trusted newspaper since 1898.

The Manila Times will hold a forum-cum-awards event on Philippine Model Cities, with the theme, “Beyond the Most Livable Urban Centers,” which recognizes outstanding cities across the country with developments in different fields.

Among the 10 categories, Laoag was shortlisted in the categories- Safe Haven (peace and security) and the Tourism Hub (business and leisure tourism spots and facilities).

Laoag through the city govenrment headed by Mayor Chevylle Fariñas is cited for achieving low crime rate and boosting tourism influx in the locality.

Fariñas expressed her joy saying, we achieved this honor no matter how small and big our efforts are. We were given high points in peace and order and with that, let’s give recognition to the PNP, barangay officials, tanods, and security officials.”

Recently, ABS-CBN TV network, released a summer station ID featuring Laoag City in a short cameo, focusing the iconic Laoag signage.

“I’d like to thank ABS-CBN for giving Laoag the honor of being included in its station ID. It focused on the sunshine. We all know that when we talk about the sunshine, Laoag City is the Sunshine City,” Fariñas said.

The Manila Times awarding rites will be held at the New World Manila Bay Hotel on May 11. (Ma. Joreina Therese A. Blanco /PIA-1, Ilocos Norte)
