    In his speech, Atty. Chy acknowledged all valued retiree-members whom he described as their “prized asset,” for making the country a top retirement destination. He then expressed his gratitude to the marketing and merchant partners, stakeholders, and active agents in pursuing the mandate and attaining the agency’s goals and target. Beyond grateful, the CEO said he is looking forward to a bright and secured future for all.

    Part of the celebration was the awarding of all outstanding PRA personnel who rendered 10 to 30 years of selfless government service.
