Pending the approval of the request of the Province of Benguet for the amendment of RA 7672, an act declaring June 18 of every year as special non-working public holiday in the Province of Benguet, June 18, 2022 (Saturday) remains a special non-working day. On June 18, 2022, we commemorate the 56th year since the separation of Benguet as sub-province of then Mountain Province.
Driven by its mission: Ensure Improvement of Quality of Life in Benguet, the Province of Benguet obtained a human development index of 0.883 in 2009. The province of Benguet promises its constituents high age expectancy, accessible high caliber education and more than sufficient way of living. This, however, can't be achieved without the help of its people.
The cultural beliefs and innate characteristics of the people made it possible for them to strive and develop higher quality of life without destroying the cradle that they live in.
