Coop lead­ers sup­port CDA 2018 Char­ter

The Philippine Star - - NEWS -

In a show of force and na­tional unity, 400 coop lead­ers from all over the coun­try flocked to the Se­nate ses­sion hall to ex­press their sup­port and wit­ness Sen. Juan Miguel “Migz” Zu­biri — the Se­nate Com­mit­tee on Co­op­er­a­tives chair­man — of­fi­cially spon­sor the Co­op­er­a­tive Devel­op­ment Au­thor­ity (CDA) Char­ter of 2018 as a com­ple­men­tary bill to the Philip­pine Co­op­er­a­tive Code of 2008.

The solon fur­ther stressed that the co­op­er­a­tive sec­tor has long been wait­ing for this. The fil­ing of the bill em­pha­sized the need to strengthen and re-or­ga­nize the CDA, giv­ing it broader pow­ers and func­tions in order to ef­fec­tively dis­charge its man­date.

The move is widely seen by many as a re­sponse to the aspi­ra­tions and needs of the sec­tor in its quest for in­clu­sive growth. Ma­jor­ity of the sen­a­tors present also co-au­thored the res­o­lu­tion.
