EED TO GATHER ACTS TOGETHER
Coordinated devít plans to spur regional growth
To unify all specific plans and programs in the Central Visayas into an integrated regional action plan, it is imperative that economic resiliency plan (ERP) be made very clear focused on economic and social programs activities and projects.
To attain such, the Regional Development Council (RDC) in Central Visayas Chairperson Gwendolyn Garcia issued a memorandum directing all heads or regional line agencies, government-owned and controlled corporations or financial institutions, state universities and colleges, local government units and Congressional representatives to submit respective programs and projects to the council through its secretariat.
Doing so would allow the RDC to integrate into the Central Visayas plan of action on the ERP and come up with an efficient and highly coordinated implementation and monitoring of such here.
The ERP hopes to ensure sustainable growth and attain the higher end of the countryís growth targest by saving and creating as many jobs as possible.
To get all these, the government proposed implementation of budget interventions such as the full and quick spending of this yearís budget, hasten spending on small infra projects, widen social protection programs and create jobs while protecting jobs.
In her memorandum circular number 0l-009, RDC chair Gov. Garcia asked concerned agencies to submit to the RDC specific programs, activities and projects to be implemented by them this year.
The report to be submitted to the RDC secretariat must contain the title of the Program, activity or project, its brief descrition, project location, targe physical performance, target number of jobs to be generated, projetc cost, funding source and actual expenditures. (PIA)
