Wes Gatchalian meets with Pinoy architects in UAE
Valenzuela Rep. Wes Gatchalian’s trip to the United Arab Emirates last February wasn’t purely for leisure, as he also touched base with overseas Filipino workers there.
One of Gatchalian’s activities in the UAE was attending the international conference of the United Architects of the Philippines (UAP) UAE-Dubai chapter.
“Dito ay nagkaroon ako ng pagkakataon na makasama at makakwentuhan ang ating mga kababayang arkitekto ng mahalagang papel sa pagtayo ng mga magaganda at kilalang gusali sa Dubai,” the lawmaker shared.
“Nawa’y magawa rin nilang madala sa ating bansa ang kanilang mga kaalaman at karanasan upang mapataas ang kalidad ng mga gusali sa Pilipinas,” he said.
One of the pieces of good news that Gatchalian shared with the architects was the progress of his pending bills, such as the measure amending the Contractor’s License Law and the bill mandating the inclusion of a licensed architect as part of local building officials in the country.
