PIA Press Release

LGUs' help to national gov't developmental programs cited

by T. Villavert

Iloilo City (20 November) -- Local government executives play an essential part in ensuring food security, peace and security, better health and education for people.

This was emphasized by President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo in recognizing the local government executives' support to the national government's efforts to improve the lives of the people.

The Malacanang press report disclosed that President Arroyo lauded the municipal mayors during the 18th League of Municipalities of the Philippines (LMP) General Assembly for staying focused on their jobs of delivering the basic needs of the people.

The LMP is an association of 1,495 municipalities all over the country.

The gathering had its theme "LMP working on Local Solutions to National and Global Issues on Food Security, Climate Change, Local Economic Development and Peace and Security".

President Arroyo described the theme as very timely as the world continues to face the challenges of higher food prices, global warming and security.

The President also noted that the local governments have a great role to play in government's goal to achieve rice sufficiency in the next five years, considering that a great part of agricultural tasks have been devolved to the LGUs.

Highlighted in the said gathering are LMP's priority bills on Land Administration and Reform Act; Free Patent Amendment Bill; and the proposed amendment to the Local Government Code. (PIA 6) [top]
