PIA Press Release

PGMA accepts peace and security resolution of Region 2

Tuguegarao City (4 August) -- President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo accepted recently the resolution and action agenda for peace, security and development submitted by the participants of the Local Peace and Security Assembly (LSA).

The group addressed the peace and security problems in the region and resolved to work closely with the national government for the construction of infrastructure and transportation facilities that will connect the provinces of Cagayan Valley.

This will establish a seamless system of road networks to provide access and further boost economic development; promote, support and contribute to the implementation of priority programs and projects of the government that will lead to the progress of the region.

In the resolution, the group urged concerned agencies of the national and local governments to hasten all measures needed to strengthen and defend the region against all forms of aggression by promoting culture of peace.

Under the resolution, five priority projects were presented to the president for action. These are farm to market roads, road networks and expressways, flood control facilities, electrification and windmill projects and expansion of irrigation systems for farmers' rice self sufficiency production.

Furthermore, the group also requested the President to increase fund allocation for irrigation and post harvest facilities, provide community based livelihood activities, explore and develop alternative energy source and accelerate development of Port Irene as the country's northernmost gateway to Asia and the Pacific.

They also encouraged the promotion of stakeholders' participation in the management of natural resources, strengthen resource information management to improve environment and natural resources management planning and decision making and integrate environmental and socio-cultural concerns in the planning and implementation of development programs and projects.

President Arroyo thanked the group for the resolution which will serve as new challenge to the community and to the government.

"We must not forget our desire for development, peace and security towards 1st world country," she said.

However, President Arroyo promised to pursue and address all concerns included in the resolution to attain permanent peace, security and development for the Cagayan Valley Region. (PIA Cagayan) [top]
