Cebu guv unanimously nominated as RDC-7 chair

By Minerva BC Newman

Cebu, Philippines (13 August) -- In a mass motion, Cebu governor Gwendolyn Garcia was unanimously nominated to chair the 2007-2010 Regional Development Council in Central Visayas (RDC-7) during a full council meeting held at the Montebello Garden Hotel, Cebu City recently.

In a media interview governor Garcia said that she is expecting a harmonious working relationship with the other local chief executives of Bohol, Oriental Negros and Siquijor. "At least wala'y away.. ang nominations," Garcia smiled.

It can be recalled that then Cong. Emilio Macias, now governor of Oriental Negros was the chair of a house committee that conducted public hearings for the "Sugbuak," or the creation of other provinces out of Cebu provinces that was vehemently rejected by Governor Garcia.

Executive Order 325, the RDC shall nominate at least 2 local chief executives who are ex-officio members and 2 private sector representatives, from whom the President shall select and appoint as RDC chair and Co-chair.

The Regional Development Council in Central Visayas has been very instrumental in endorsing mega projects that generated economic and tourism development in the region.

With Governor Garcia's "no-nonsense" track record in local governance and fiscal management, the members of the RDC here is looking forward to a more aggressive economic and tourism boom in Central Visayas as it is the hub of tourism in the President's "Super Regions" blueprint.

Garcia's nomination will still be submitted to the President for confirmation and appointment. (PIA-Cebu) [top]
