NEDA donates vehicle to CatSU


The National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) Region 5 - Bicol donated a second-hand 9-seater Mitsubishi Adventure to Catanduanes State University (CatSU) on January 5, 2023.

NEDA Director and CatSU Board of Regent, Engr. Luis G. Banua presented the vehicle to CatSU President Dr. Patrick Alain T. Azanza at the NEDA compound in Legazpi City. The donation was in response to CatSU's request for transportation support due to the limited number of vehicles on campus.

Dr. Azanza said that the University needed the vehicle for various community engagements and linkage activities in coordination with the Local Government Unit and other national agencies. The additional vehicle will help CatSU in its goal of extending its services to the community.

Dr. Azanza also announced that the vehicle would be shared by the Office of Extension Services, and the Office of Research Development Services (RDS).

“I am happy that finally our office and the RDS office will now have a car to use in our extension services and research activities. This will make us work harder,” Dr. Adem Nalu V. Rubio, Extension Services Director said.

Dr. Rubio, along with Vice President for Research, Extension, and Production Affairs Dr. Ramon Felipe Sarmiento and RDS Director Dr. Jose Tria, expressed their gratitude to NEDA Director Banua and Dr. Azanza.  #FJBT
