“When I was a councilor way back 1998, I established a computer learning center even though I know that Internet resources were limited. I am backed with this hope that technology will soon catch up and be vital for acquiring knowledge,” Manila City Mayor Isko Moreno said. “I am glad I carried this vision over when I became a Vice Mayor and now the Mayor of Manila City.
