PGMA presides over inauguration of Plaza Sigbu and Doņa Eva M. Macapagal Session Hall

Manila (23 July) -- President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo will preside over the inauguration and renaming ceremonies of the Cebu City Executive Building's (CCEB) new session hall and park when she visits the province of Cebu on Thursday, July 24.

The President, who will be assisted by Cebu City Mayor Tomas Osmeņa and Vice Mayor Michael Rama, will lead guests in the ribbon-cutting and marker-unveiling ceremonies for both events.

The session hall, which is the centerpiece of the newly-renovated CCEB, will be named after the President's mother Doņa Eva Macaraeg-Macapagal.

Estimated cost of the renovation of the former three-storey edifice and the construction of a new floor where the Doņa Eva Macaraeg-Macapagal session hall will be housed is P120 million, P15 million of which came from the Philippine Tourism Authority (PTA).

The grounds fronting the CCEB, formerly known as Rizal Park, will be renamed Plaza Sugbu and will be part of the inauguration ceremonies that the President will attend.

The CCEB, which was Cebu's old City Hall, now houses the city's administration offices, a clinic, child-minding center, cafeteria, social hall, caucus room and conference room, aside from housing the City Council Session Hall. (PIA-MMIO) [top]
