Kita-kits po tayo sa CSPC, Nabua sa September 23-24, 2023,” the legislator said in his Fb post.

The BPSF will give opportunities to Camarinenses to access government services for free and will serve as a platform for participating agencies to showcase their programs and initiatives.

Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) Camarines Sur OIC and Supervising Statistical Specialist Raul Aspe also expressed his enthusiasm to share their innovations to their clients and the BPSF will be an added avenue where they can convey their aspiration to “become a world-class organization.”
