ABOUT LPGMA PARTYLIST

TAGLINE: Safety First ng Pamilya Mo.

LPG Marketers’ Association (LPGMA) was organized in order that its members will have a common voice and representation on issues that affect the industry.

In the process, LPGMA has evolved into a group advocating the need of the consuming public to have access to lower-priced LPG and for them to choose to purchase any LPG brand.

LPGMA, in 2009, sought accreditation with the Commission on Election to be registered as a sectoral organization for the purpose of participating in the May 10, 2010 elections under the party list system. Its principal advocacy is protection of the right of the ordinary consumer to have access to reasonably-priced LPG and, also, to exercise their freedom to choose to buy any brand of LPG that is available in the market.

LPG is such an important commodity that affects a great number of the Filipino population. Consumers need to elect representatives to Congress to protect their interest.

MISSION – VISION – OBJECTIVES

LPG/MA aims to be at the frontlines of promoting safety in the Philippines – first by advocating for safety production, distribution and use of LPG especially among Filipino households, and second by ensuring safety in general – whether at the workplace, in the streets, in school, and even in family and community relationships.
