ICC Cotabato City (17 November) -- The Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao is expecting more positive gains as it move to the next three years of leading the region's economy and putting its efforts to attain genuine and lasting peace under the leadership of ARMM Governor Datu Zaldy "Puti" Uy Ampatuan.
