  1. My condolence to the bereaved family of former Governor Remulla. He helped our team at EPZA (now PEZA) when we started to develope the Cavite Export Zone, located at Rosario, Cavite in the early 80’s. He then assigned Vice Gov. Nonong Recafrente ( now the Mayor of Rosario, Cavite) to see to it that all assistance needed from the province were given to us. I salute former Governor Johnny Remulla as a true and good political leader! Godspeed Governor! May the angels watch over you always.
