NEDA launches PH, CL de­vel­op­ment plans

Sun.Star Pampanga - - TOPSTORIES! -

CITY OF SAN FER­NANDO — The Na­tional Eco­nomic and De­vel­op­ment Author­ity (NEDA) re­cently launched in Cen­tral Luzon the Philip­pine De­vel­op­ment Plan (PDP) as well as the Re­gional De­vel­op­ment Plan (RDP) for 2017-2022.

“This is turn­ing our vi­sion into a re­al­ity. This grand launch­ing is im­por­tant be­cause the gov­ern­ment wants as many peo­ple as pos­si­ble to be in­formed of the plans’salient fea­ture, which will trans­late into an in­creased aware­ness, un­der­stand­ing, and in­ter­est on the de­vel­op­ment plans,” NEDA Re­gional Di­rec­tor Sev­erino San­tos said.

Both the PDP and RDP seek to build a strong foun­da­tion for a “matatag, mag­in­hawa at panatag na buhay,” an­chored on Am­biyon Natin 2040.

“Through the three main strate­gies which are malasakit or en­hanc­ing the so­cial fab­ric; pag­babago or re­duc­ing poverty and in­equal­ity; and kaun­laran or in­creas­ing po­ten­tial growth,

the gov­ern­ment com­mits it­self to de­sign­ing and im­ple­ment­ing ap­pro­pri­ate poli­cies, pro­grams, and projects for the next six years that will bring the Philip­pines closer to what we Filipinos en­vi­sion our coun­try to be,” San­tos fur­thered.

Since there is still much to be done, the gov­ern­ment needs all the sup­port and help it can get from var­i­ous sec­tors and stake­hold­ers.

San­tos chal­lenged the pub­lic to be part, not only of the vi­sion­ing, but also to work hard and serve as ac­tive part­ners for change in turn­ing this vi­sion into con­crete ac­tions.— Marie Joy L. Sim­pao/ CLJD/ PIA -3
