National agencies propose over P3-B projects for DavNor in 2013

TAGUM CITY, Davao del Norte, Jan. 18 (PIA) -- Various agencies of the national government intended to implement more than P3-billion worth of programs, projects and activities (PPAs) in the province of Davao del Norte next year.

The proposed funding was raised at the recent local consultation on the Calendar Year 2013 Annual Investment Program (AIP), where agency regional offices (AROs), state universities and colleges (SUCs) and other stakeholders presented their PPAs for the province for 2013.

The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) topped the list of AROs as it plans to shell out P1.3 billion-worth of public infrastructures for the province.

The Department of Education (DepEd) follows with over P1.1 billion-worth of proposed investment for the education sector next year.

Gov. Rodolfo del Rosario, who presided over the consultation meeting held at the Bulwagan ng Lalawigan in Mankilam, Tagum City, welcomed the budget, which he said will greatly contribute to the fulfillment of his human-centered development agenda, known as P.E.O.P.L.E.

As Davao del Norte, along with other LGUs, is beginning to feel the impact of the 4.8 percent reduction in the internal revenue allotment (IRA) this year, Gov. del Rosario is optimistic that the province will be able to pass the fiscal challenges over.

He said Capitol financial managers have devised measures to combat the IRA cut, ranging from austerity measures, to enforcing strict accountability, strengthening revenue generation, as well as, tapping national and overseas development assistance (ODA) funding opportunities.

According to him, the provincial leadership has since adopted the mantra of “maximum effectiveness at the least cost.”

National Economic Development Authority (NEDA)-XI Director Maria Lourdes Lim said the consultation of the AROs with the provincial government was done in order to reconcile and confirm program thrusts and priorities of the national agencies in the Davao region with the thrusts and programs of the province.

Lim, who is also vice-chair of the Regional Development Council (RDC)-XI, cited the importance of achieving stronger alignment in planning, investment programming, and budgeting, and the active involvement of the local government units in aligning the PPAs with their respective Provincial Development and Investment Programs (PDIPs).

She said the activity was necessary for the Davao region to achieve its desired vision of becoming the country’s Rising Global Frontier. (PIO-DavNor/Noel Baguio)
