DAVAO ORIENTAL – More projects are set for implementation in the Province of Davao Oriental as the national government through its line agencies have laid out projects and plans poised to boost the province’s development.

During the League of Municipalities (LMP) Meeting and Interfacing with national agencies held at Lanes Kitaanan on December 8, 2016, twenty-one agencies from the national government presented their respective programs, plans and activities (PPAs) set for implementation next year here.

Budget allocation for projects ranging from road and public infrastructures, support to agriculture, social welfare services, environment protection, education, health, and peace and order programs, among many others, have been earmarked for the smooth implementation of the projects which bid to improve living conditions of the local communities and usher in more developments in the province.

LMP President, Tarragona Mayor Nestor L. Uy, appreciated the commitment of all agencies who were present during the interfacing activity which he said would help in the efficient delivery of services to the people. He added that the interactions in the said activity will help evaluate and gauge the effectiveness of the national agencies’ programs. It has also served as a venue to discuss issues and concerns of the municipalities on the agencies’ program implementation.

During the interfacing activity, mayors of the different municipalities have concurred to urge the national agencies to conduct consultations first with the local chief executives in the implementation of national government-initiated projects, which was among the accentuated issues identified.  

Meanwhile, Governor Nelson L. Dayanghirang stressed the importance of the interfacing activity to strengthen relationship of the Local Government Units with the national government. He underscored the need to enhance partnership between the local and national government in order to harmonize programs and to ensure that government services will reach down to the grassroots level.

Moreover, he also thanked the active participation of the national agencies in the recent conduct of the Provincial Government-initiated outreach program dubbed as Nagkakaisang Lingkod Bayan ng Davao Oriental Barangay Outreach Caravan. The program which was piloted in the Barangay Taocanga in the municipality of Manay saw the broadened partnership of the Provincial Government with national government agencies in bringing services ranging from medical and dental checkups, distribution of food packs and school supplies, legal consultations, provision of seedlings, and conduct of lectures on various important social issues, among many others. “None of those interventions came single-handedly,” said Governor Dayanghirang, noting the deepening collaboration of the Provincial Government with national line agencies in offering various services to the people.

The national agencies that presented their programs for 2017 are Department of Social Welfare and Development, PhilHealth, Department of Health, National Anti-Poverty Commission, Department of Public Works and Highways, Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources, Department of Environment and Natural Resources, Department of Agriculture, Department of Education, Department of Trade and Industry, Department of Agrarian Reform, National Commission on Indigenous Peoples, National Irrigation Authority, the Philippine Army, Philippine National Police, Land Transportation Office, Bureau of Fire Protection, Department of Information and Communication Technology, Philippine Coast Guard, Davao Oriental Electric Cooperative, and the Department of Interior and Local Government.
