In behalf of the City Government of Cotabato, I sincerely wish every Cotabateño a happy and meaningful 56th Araw ng Cotabato.
Today marks another milestone as we have reached and completed one more year filled with good news and remarkable achievements.
2014 gave us the TOP 3 MOST BUSINESS FRIENDLY CITY AWARD and the SEAL OF GOOD HOUSEKEEPING-SILVER CATEGORY. As we welcomed 2015, we were again awarded with the SEAL OF CHILD-FRIENDLY GOVERNANCE and consequently named as one of the TOP 3 MOST CHILD-FRIENDLY CITIES in the whole country.
Also this year, several malls and big establishments are set to open for all of us Cotabateños to enjoy.
We may have waited long enough for this kind of progress that we now have but those years are all worth it as today, we have proven that we can rise above and we can be more than what others expect of us.
Indeed, our 56th Araw ng Cotabato is worth celebrating. But still, let us continue to work for peace and strive for success and progress. There are still a lot more good things in store for us and together, we can achieve them all.
