DDG-OIC Gepty emphasized that this is the first testimonial that IPOPHL has organized to recognize people and institutions that are instrumental in continuing the success of our projects, particularly the ITSO project.

Allan Gepty, IPOPHL OIC Director General. “Hopefully in the years to come there will be more gatherings like this, recognizing all the people that have been instrumental in our advocacy”, he added.
