Manny Pacquiao wants Pateros as world-class exporter of ‘balut,’ salted egg

Senator Manny Pacquiao said Pateros, the only town in Metro Manila, could be developed to become a premier investment location in food processing and manufacturing.

During a visit to Pateros, the presidential candidate said the town’s “ balut “ and salted egg production could become world-class industries if only the government would assist in turning them into major export products.

“Yung balut saka itlog na maalat ng Pateros kilalang-kilala hindi lang sa Pilipinas kundi maging sa ibang bansa. Parang exotic na pagkain kasi mga yan sa mga ibang nationality kaya dapat pag-aralan kung paano nating gawing major export ang balut at itlog na maalat,” Pacquiao said.

“Huwag sana nating pabayaan kahit yung mga maliliit na munisipalidad dahil malaki rin ang ambag nila sa ating ekonomiya,” he added.

Pacquiao vowed that no town or city will be left behind in his campaign against poverty and corruption during his visit to Pateros, a small southern Metro Manila town with a population that is even smaller than most barangays of Manila and Quezon.

He said that all towns and cities, big or small, must get all the support that they need to ensure that all Filipinos, including those residing in small municipalities like Pateros, can have decent homes and livelihood.

In the continuation of his campaign sorties, Team Pacquiao navigated through the narrow streets of Pateros on a motorcade before conducting a forum with the fire victims of Barangay San Juan together with the town’s tricycle drivers and ambulant vendors.

He also paid a visit to Pateros Mayor Ike Ponce III as a show of courtesy.
