Zambo City forges partnership with REAWESMIN

Zamboanga City (September 14) -- District I Congresswoman Maria Isabelle (Beng) Climaco yesterday initiated a consultation-dialogue with regional executives to explore possible opportunities for a mutual relationship in the implementation of projects and programs.

Some 60 regional directors composing the Regional Executive Association of Western Mindanao (REAWESMIN) attended the dialogue and considered the event as a breakthrough considering it was the first time ever to be done in Zamboanga.

Themed "forging partnerships", the consultation-dialogue was part of Climaco's campaign promise and served as a forum where individual agencies brought up issues and concerns that require attention at the national level.

Cong. Climaco said the dialogue was meant to look for avenues where she could assist the regional offices in whatever needs they have and for the REAWESMIN to help her in her programs and advocacies.

Some 19 proposals were submitted for the lady solon's appropriate action, these included issues about the Philippine National Red Cross, Air Transportation Office, Department of Public Works and Highways, Department of Social Welfare and Development as well as the regional transfer issue.

The REAWESMIN spearheaded by Nazareth with National Computer Center director Teresita Camba, National Economic Development Authority (NEDA) director Rafael Evangelista and Budget Director Gerry Concepcion lauded Climaco for the initiative saying it was the first of its kind in Zambanga.

They said the dialogue served as a venue for them to allow the congresswoman to represent their needs in Congress. They also requested that the activity be done on a quarterly basis.

Prior to the Climaco initiative, the regional directors individually addressed their concerns to their head offices, a practice that seldom works well.

Cong. Climaco assured the regional directors to do her best by bringing their concerns to the attention of the concerned agencies at the national level. With respect to budget issues, she also vowed to exert efforts considering that she is a member of the powerful Appropriations Committee of the House.

The dialogue, held at Eureka room of the Patio Palmeras in Pasonanca, took four hours instead of the planned 2 hours and ended with a positive note. (AB/PIA ZC) [top]
