“The Post Office has gone a long way.” This was PHLPost Chairman of the Board Cesar N. Sarino’s opening statement during his very short visit to PHLPost-6 Administrative Center on November 17, 2014. Chairman of the Board Cesar N. Sarino was in Iloilo City for a different purpose but took the time to meet with PHLPost Area 6 Director Fabiolita P. Ferraris and other PHLPost 6 officials.
The good chairman said that while it has not been an easy three years, he is happy to note that the “direction PHLPost is heading to has now become clearer”. However, “there is still much to be done”, the Chairman emphasized. For one thing, “the Post Office needs to look competitive”, the reason for the repairs, repainting and face-lifting of Post Offices nationwide.
In Area 6, 30 facelifting and repair projects have been targeted by the end of 2014, and 28 of which have already been completed at the end of the third quarter this year. Chairman Sarino also stressed the importance of internet connectivity nationwide.
In Area 6, 36 Post Offices now have internet connectivity; 17 Post Offices are now accepting electronic Postal Money Order transactions, 12 Post Offices have Bayad Center outlets, and 24 Post Offices/Post Office Counters can now process walk-in electronic business mails.
Chairman Sarino ended his visit with a statement of gratitude. “Whatever we have done should be credited to you”, he said, referring to the postal officials and employees. “Thank you for all the things you’ve done for the corporation.” While the visit took less than an hour only, it was nevertheless a moving experience for all who had the opportunity to listen to the man who helped transform the Post Office.
Thank you, too, Chairman Sarino!
