The initiatives of numerous line government agencies that would be executed in the region in the upcoming years to support the country’s economic growth have been discussed by President Ferdinand R. Marcos with the regional directors of Davao.
To keep track of the initiatives and plans of the Department of Agriculture (DA), Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE), Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD), and National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) in the area, Marcos called a meeting in Panacan, Davao City, on Thursday.
He said on Facebook late Friday night, “This is part of our goal to help our fellow countrymen recuperate from the impacts of the pandemic as quickly as possible.”
State-run Radio Television Malacanang (RTVM) said in a separate Facebook post that the regional directors of the DA, DOLE, DTI, DSWD, and NEDA had given the President updates on their accomplishments.
According to RTVM, Abel James Monteagudo, executive director of DA 11 (Davao region), provided Marcos with a regional agriculture condition report and informed him that the Davao Region currently has the “fifth greatest economy in the country.”
According to information made public by the Philippine Statistics Authority in April, the economy of Davao will expand by 5.9 percent in 2021.
In order to provide “full decent and productive” employment for all Davaoenos, Jason Balais, DOLE-11 assistant director, underlined the agency’s actions, including data collecting on the region’s employment status and the protective measures for employees and vulnerable sectors.
While DSWD-11 Director Vanessa Goc-ong addressed the agency’s most recent initiatives and services that serve women and children, older citizens, people with disabilities, and youth, DTI-11 Director Maria Belenda Ambi gave an update on the commerce and industry sector in the region.
Marcos was informed by Maria Lourdes Lim, director of NEDA-11, on the state of the region’s economy and its prospects for growth.
The Samal Island-Davao City Connector Bridge Project groundbreaking ceremony and the distribution of financial and economic aid to needy sectors were two of the events Marcos presided over during his visit to Davao City.
At the Naval Forces Eastern Mindanao headquarters, he also addressed the troops of the Eastern Mindanao Command (EastMinCom).
EastMinCom commander Lt. Gen. Greg Almerol discussed the command’s peace, security, and development initiatives in collaboration with various governmental bodies and line agencies that led to the destruction of various communist organizations and the declaration of the Davao Region as being free of insurgency.
Almerol also displayed the weapons that rebel groups had surrendered, confiscated, captured, and retrieved.
In his speech, Marcos remarked, “We must recognize the efforts of our men and women in uniform, especially the Eastern Mindanao Command of the Armed Forces of the Philippines, for providing the protection and security of our people to your various Civil and Military Operations.” “We must also acknowledge the efforts of our LGUs (local government units), our various government agencies, and the law enforcement authorities in the region for supporting the NTF-ELCAC (National Task Force to end Local Communist Armed Conflict) by enhancing public safety and putting in place initiatives that improve everyone’s quality of life.”
In addition, the President instructed the Regional Development Council (RDC) of Davao to hold a meeting of the Davao International Airport Authority Board and implement initiatives to alleviate the region’s urban problems.
Marcos acknowledged the necessity for a unique organization to advocate for the development of the administrative region and indicated support for the creation of the Metropolitan Davao Development Authority.
