(The Healthy Philippine Economy)
In a get-together with Friends of Dualtech, last May 18, Dr. Villegas, gave his forecast for the country in the coming five years. One of the ways to describe the country’s economy is to compare it to the nutrition a body needs to be healthy.
"Graduation is time to celebrate, time to succeed, and be proud that you made it up to this point. I also want to take this time to acknowledge your Dualtech foundation, inyong mga mentor, inyong mga guro, inyong mga administrators, and also the time for you guys to celebrate and rejoice that you have made another accomplishment. 10,000 ang dumaan sa Dualtech. It started in 1982 so ang dami ng nabigyan ng pagkakataon makapag-aral at maging successful ng mga estudyante dahil dito. So thank you very much, accept my congratulations. It is a job well done. I hope you continue it and we have people to keep on supporting you all through out. Even if I am not here anymore, I am sure susuporta ang NXP para sa inyo."

Members of the Association of the Hanns Seidel Foundation Scholars of the Philippines (AHSFSPI), spearheaded by its President, Mr. Honorio M. Grupo, Jr., and its Treasurer, Mr. Rene Roberto G. Garcia, joined the Mentoring Sessions under the Dualtech Center’s Advanced Stage Training Program (ASTP) as mentors to the Center’s trainees last 16th October 2009 and 12th February 2010.
On behalf of the board of trustees, we thank you partners.
As we look back in the 32 years of Dualtech Center and the celebration of the 20th year of Dual Training System Law, we could take pride in the number of graduates who have passed the Dualtech system who count 10,000 now.
The numbers that we are talking about are represented by men who have gone through a formation aside from the basic training that has empowered them to land for a job. The success of The Dual Training System (DTS) is anchored not only on our system that we have had from Germany but principally because of the partnership that we have with the companies. We thank you for your cooperation and for being our allies.
Much to our regret and in the interest of consolidating the center, we have closed our Binondo school. What we have done was to centralize the trainors and equipment in Calamba campus to accommodate more scholars. The other thing that we have done as one of the major improvements at Dualtech was the roof in the Assembly Hall. We have done renovations early this year so that the typhoons spared us from any damage.
