PIA Press Release

Sorsogon hosts regional confab of treasurers and assesors

by BA Recebido

Sorsogon City (2 February) -- Sorsogon province will be hosting the Regional Convention for Treasurers and Assessors on February 2-4, 2009 with the theme "Empowering Local Government through Local Fiscal Autonomy".

Assistant Provincial Treasurer Belen Gacosta of Sorsogon said that the First Quarter Convention of the Regional Association of Treasurers and Assessors (REGATA) of Bicol Region will craft measures to improve collection efficiencies of LGUs in order to partially ease their dependency on the internal revenue allocation.

"Some 300 participants from the treasury and assessment services are expected to attend the three-day event which was convened by the REGATA and the Bureau of Local Government Finance Regional Office V," she said.

During the event, the new set of officers of REGATA Bicol, led by Engr. Rene Loreto Ll. Gilbas, Sorsogon Provincial Assessor officer-in-charge, will take their oath to be administered by Sorsogon Governor Sally A. Lee.

Gacosta also said that the province is hosting the said convention since for the first time a Sorsoganon will hold the association's presidency.

"Hosting the regional convention, at the same time, would give the province a better opportunity to showcase and promote its tourism products and services," she added.

Gacosta, meanwhile, appeals to the public to be responsible and help them improve further the province's local collection efficiency by religiously paying their obligations to include franchise taxes, real and business taxes, among others. (PIA Sorsogon) [top]
