RDC 6 meets in Capiz Dec. 5

by A. Lumaque

Roxas City (26 November) -- A regular conference of the Regional Development Council (RDC) in Western Visayas is set here on December 5 as part of the activities for the Sinadya sa Halaran (SSH) celebration from Dec. 4 to 8 this year.

"All the six governors and city mayors in the region as well as national government agencies regional directors and non-government organizations will meet here for the fourth quarter RDC meeting," said Capiz Governor Victor A. Tanco, Sr. in an interview over RMN – Roxas.

RDC is the highest policy-making body in the region and serves as the counterpart of the NEDA Board at the subnational level. It is the primary institution that coordinates and sets the direction of all economic and social development efforts in the region. It also serves as a forum where local efforts can be related and integrated with national development activities.

"Six congressmen from Metro Manila will also arrive here by Dec. 6 to conduct a committee hearing on ancestral domain issue," added Tanco during the interview.

The chief provincial executive has also called on Capiceños here and abroad and other tourists to witness the celebration "as the province and city have prepared new and exciting activities."

The 5-day SSH celebration with the theme "Bugay nga Naagum, Ikalipay kag Ipaambit nga Mapinasalamaton" is the province's way of life demonstrated in various merrymaking and thanksgiving activities for its blessings and good fortunes during the past year.

It culminates on the Dec. 8 feast day of Roxas City's Patroness, Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception. (PIA) [top]
