USAID awarded PRIMEX the contract for “The Legacy Project: USAID in the Philippines” on 16 June 2015.  The project aims to produce a legacy photo book and video documentary that will showcase USAID programs that have had major impacts on Philippine society from 1961 to 2015.


“We are very happy that PRIMEX has won its first project with USAID as Sole Contractor. This is a milestone for us on our 25th year,”


Ms. Elvira C. Ablaza, PRIMEX President and CEO, during the Post-Award Briefing with USAID officials held at the US Embassy in Manila on 6 July 2015.

Mr. Leo R. Pura (Vice President for Technical Services), Mr. Donald E. Loyloy ( Vice President for Finance and Administration), and Ms. Lourdes A. Caballero (Assistant Manager for Technical Services and Project Manager for the Legacy Project) joined Ms. Ablaza at the Post-Award Briefing. PRIMEX has worked in several USAID funded projects in the past 25 years as a subcontractor of prime contractors.

The Legacy photo book will include 25 case studies that will show how USAID helped catalyze important changes across six sectors (economic growth, health, education, democracy and governance, Mindanao peace and stability, and environment).
