PETITIONING THE CITY GOVERNMENT OF BAGUIO NOT TO ACCEPT UNSOLICITED
PROPOSALS FOR THE MODERNIZATION OF THE BAGUIO PUBLIC MARKET AND FOR THE LGU TO PARTNER WITH THE MARKET COOPERATIVES IN MODERNIZING THE BAGUIO PUBLIC MARKET

The rehabilitation of the Baguio City public market is one of the priority projects of the current administration under the leadership of Mayor Benjamin B. Magalong.

We are in conformity with Mayor Magalong’s project to modernize Baguio Public Market - which desperately needs improvement - but we wish to point out that such modernization should not sacrifice the market’s tangible and intangible heritage values. It is for this reason that we oppose the acceptance of any unsolicited proposal and instead partner with market cooperatives to modernize the Baguio Public Market.

Please prioritize local investors and reject any unsolicited proposal from big corporations.
The market is a public enterprise where our locals trade goods such as vegetables, fruits, meat,
fish, legumes, grains that are locally produced by our adjacent municipalities, provinces and regions.
This is where our local residents, students and tourists buy reasonably priced local goods.

We support the cooperatives as the partner of the Local Government in modernizing the public market. We suggest that the local government use its “idle funds” in partnering with the market cooperatives Instead of allowing wealthy corporations to profit from their investment on the sweat of our local vendors.

The local government may also take a loan to augment whatever financial deficiencies there are
or post bonds so that we, the local residents can invest in the market.

THIS IS OUR BELOVED CITY, LET US ALL WORK TOGETHER IN MODERNIZING OUR
PUBLIC MARKET WITHOUT SACRIFICING ITS TANGIBLE AND INTANGIBLE HERITAGE VALUES
BECAUSE IT IS OUR RESPONSIBILITY.
