Richli Corp. is setting water treatment standard with its state-of-the-art facility located in barangay Patrocinio, Cortes town, Secretary Ernesto Pernia, Director General of the National Economic Development Authority (NEDA) said.
Pernia was invited by the company’s chairman Richard E. Lim, Sr. as guest of the inauguration on January 30 of its 1.5-Billion water facility and treatment plant.
Also invited were Gov. Edgar Chatto; Atty. Rogelio Garcia, director of Development Bank of the Philippines; Cortes Mayor Iven Lim; Corella Mayor Jose Tocmo, Panglao Mayor Leonila Montero, Vice-Mayor Pedro Fuertes; Patrocinio barangay chairperson Chatto; and other guests.
Sec. Pernia said that the new water treatment facility is now known to setting a standard that may be a model for others to replicate.
And certainly indeed, the said, Richli is not planting a seed in barren soil but a fertile one so that it won’t only benefit a hundred but a thousand fold.
The project will benefit, not the privileged ones but also those who are poor and marginalized, said Pernia, who was visibly impressed on the new facility.
Richli assures consumers to soon serve in Panglao island and other towns and this city of flowing water supply 24/7 and 365 days a year even during power interruptions, Jeoffrey Hapitan, chair, JE Hydro and BioEnergy Corp., said.
