MANILA, June 4 – The Quezon City Government is opening on June 7 a 10-panel photo exhibit at the Philcoa-Quezon Memorial Circle (QMC) underpass in Diliman, Quezon City.

The event highlights the accomplishments of the QC government during the past nine years under the leadership of Mayor Feliciano Belmonte Jr.

“Pamana: A Lasting Legacy” is the second underpass photo exhibit project of the Public Affairs and Information Services Office (PAISO), Department of Engineering and Quezon Memorial Circle Administration.

The first semi-permanent exhibit is in the first pedestrian underpass linking the QC Hall complex with the QMC across the Elliptical Road.

The new exhibit will present more than a hundred color photos that bespeak of Quezon City’s 9-year transformation into one of Asia’s models for urban development.

“Presenting the exhibit is our expression of gratitude to Belmonte for the many good things he is leaving as lasting legacy not only to QC Hall but to all his constituents,” said PAISO head Gregorio T. Bañacia.

The three-term QC mayor, now a congressman-elect of District 4, is confident of becoming the Speaker of the House of Representatives. Leaders of the Liberal Party are supporting his bid for the speakership.

It was during the Belmonte administration that Quezon City achieved and maintained the distinction of being the country’s richest city, for being the number one among the local government units in revenue collection.

Engineering department chief Joselito Cabungcal and QMC administrator Tady M. Palma consider cultural projects like the QMC photo exhibits as effective tools for attracting more visitors to the QMC, which is now being transformed into a world-class park. (PNA) vcs/JCA
