EPA Deputy Executive Director and acting Executive Director, Randell Dobadyu said the donation is a continuation of the agency’s move to improving the air conditioning and refrigeration sector.
With the involvement of young people in the sector, Director Randell Dobayou said it will motivate and encourage those wanting to invest and study in the sector.
According to him, proper usage and standardized materialization of refrigerators and air conditioners when known and studied will stimulate the intent of the sector.
