RG Hataman, together with his ARMM contingent composed of DepEd RSec Kulayan, RLA Speaker Ras Mitmug and DOT RSec Sampaco-Baddiri, visited the booths and exhibits of provincial offices of line agencies in Lanao del Sur---taking time to chat and ask questions about the status of the provincial offices such as the Provincial Health Office, the TESDA-Lanao del Sur and DepEd-ARMM Lanao del Sur divisions.
During the Capitol Day Programme, provincial offices of ARMM line agencies presented to RG Hataman their State of Governance Reports which included agency accomplishments, current programs and projects as well as issues and challenges facing the provincial offices. RG Hataman aptly responded to the various issues raised, such as the need for heavy equipment in the maintenance and widening of roads in the two DPWH districts in Lanao del Sur. The Regional Governor assured the public that these heavy equipment will be distributed to the engineering districts as a result of current savings from reforms in DPWH-ARMM.
Highlighting the tourism potential of Lanao del Sur, RSec. Baddiri of DOT-ARMM briefly spoke about working with other line agencies in jump-starting tourism development through community based training and livelihood programs. Citing the marching orders of RG Hataman in making the ARMM an important tourist destination, RSec. Baddiri emphasized the significance of the reform agenda of the ARMM regional governor in peace and order, governance and development in the success of tourism enterprise initiatives in the region. Lanao del Sur with its innate natural wealth and rich cultural heritage is a compelling example of what ARMM has to offer.
The Araw ng Lanao del Sur festivities will be capped on July 4, 2012 with a grand street parade, cultural performances, and a culmination program at the New Capitol Complex in Marawi City.
