NEDA holds next ‘AmBisyon Natin’ roadshow in Batangas
The Batangas provincial government is scheduled to host the Calabarzon Roadshow of the Philippine Development Plan (PDP) 2017-2022 next week.
The roadshow aims to promote public awareness on the government’s development programs and projects on infrastructure development, social services, among others.
The PDP was approved by President Duterte during the National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) board meeting in Malacañang last February 20.
Batangas Governor Hermilando Mandanas, as chair of the Regional Development Council (RDC) for the Calabarzon Region, is looking forward to the PDP roadshow at the provincial capitol on July 28
according to Batangas Public Information Officer Jenelyn Aguiler.
Mandanas also chairs the National Economic Development Authority (NEDA) Regional Development Committee for Luzon.
The roadshow also aims to enlist mass-based support from the public and private sectors, non-government organizations and civil society to craft strategies to engage citizens and various stakeholders for all-inclusive development programs and projects.
Resource speakers have been invited to discuss the government’s development thrust such as “Malasakit” or strengthening the Filipino’s desirable cultural traits and values; “Pagbabago” or increasing opportunities to improve the Filipino standard of living and quality of life; and “Patuloy na Pag-unlad” or sustainable growth and development.
Among the PDP-related activities prepared are fora on relevant topics, parade, poster-making contest, “Serbisyo para kay Juan at Juana” or people-centric services such as medical at dental missions, jobs fair, free haircut, among others. (Philippine News Agency)
