“I want to express my heartfelt gratitude to our dedicated taxpayers, daghan kaayong salamat. You are the unsung heroes of our society. Taxes are the lifeline of our economy, and it is through your contributions that we can provide essential services, build infrastructure, and invest in the development of our community,” shared Georgia Gokiangkee, Claver Mayor.
Engr. Robert Francisco, TMC Mine Division Manger, noted how the festival’s theme of unity, diversity and resilience echoes the essence of the relationship between TMC and the LGU.
“Sama sama po nating hinaharap ang lahat ng pagsubok simula pa po noong 1986 until itong mga nakalipas na panahon ng pandemya at yung panahon ng bagyong si Odette. Because of our unity, we were able to rise against all these challenges that faced us and come together tonight to celebrate all the triumphs that we have experienced together here in the municipality of Claver.”
“Kami po sa TMC ay patuloy po na maglilingkod sa inyong lahat bilang isang responsableng mining company dito sa Claver. TMC is a company that you can truly be proud of because we have consistently won several awards on your behalf. And these awards, we humbly dedicate to the municipality of Claver and its people,” Engr. Francisco added.
