Feature: The Bohol advantage

Tagbilaran City (20 October) -- With the present economic status of our country, combined with strong and united provincial leadership, the province of Bohol have an advantage compared to our provinces in the country. Secretary of Finance Margarito Teves, made this observation during his visit to Bohol last Sunday.

Sec. Teves, whose grandmother hails from Dipatlong, Maribojoc; was the guest speaker during the town’s 146th Foundation Day celebration.

According to Teves, Bohol has an edge among other local government units since its present leadership held key positions in their respective areas. He cited Gov. Erico Aumentado being the president of the league of provinces and ULAP, and Vice-Gov. Julius Herrera as president of the vice-governors league.

With the country now doing good in its fiscal performance and its economic agenda in place; there is a greater chance that pro-poor and infrastructure projects in the provinces can be funded. With Bohol’s present leadership, there is a greater advantage that said projects will be funded and could very much bolster the development of the province.

Also, being top among tourist destinations, and with tourism as prime economic movers in the Visayas, Bohol could also have an edge with 1st District Solon Edgar Chatto as the house chair in Tourism.

“We now have the resources in government, and if Bohol will present good projects; knowing its track record and dedicated leadership, then Bohol’s development and pro-poor programs can be within reach”, Teves added. (PIA) [top]
