KORONADAL CITY, South Cotabato (PIA) – In line with the government’s continuous effort to reach communities and bring public services closer to the people, the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) Regional Office XII, along with its partner agencies will spearhead ‘Dagyaw 2021: Open Government and Participatory Governance' Virtual Town Hall Meeting on November 25 from 2:00 to 4:00 pm.

Dagyaw 2021: “Serye sa Dose – Usapang Debolusyon at Bakuna” underscores the implementation of Mandanas-Garcia Ruling or the full devolution of basic services and facilities from the national government to local government units (LGUs) starting next year, including the increased share of LGUs in all national taxes and revenues under Executive Order 138 signed by President Rodrigo Duterte early this year.
Furthermore, experts from the Department of Health will give updates on the vaccination program towards the goal of reaching population protection.
