KORONADAL, South Cotabato – The leadership of the League of Provinces in the Philippines (LPP) said it hoped there would be greater coordination between national government agencies and local governments.
South Cotabato Governor Reynaldo S. Tamayo Jr. said in an interview at the sideline of the 2nd General Assembly of the League of Provinces of the Philippines that he hoped this will happen after the assembly after both the national government agencies and the LGUs worked side by side in providing solutions and recommendation to the issues facing the member of LGUs of the LPP.
Tamayo is president of the LPP.
The assembly was held at The Farm at Carpenter Hill in this capital town of South Cotabato.
Tamayo thanked DILG Secretary Benjamin Abalos Jr. for coming over to the assembly on September 30 where he talked about the review being done with Executive Order 138 of the DILG concerning full devolution of certain functions of the executive branch to the local government.
North Cotabato Governor Emmylou "Lala" Taliño Mendoza said she supported the LPP recommendation that the government should review the Rice Tariffication Law and return the regulatory power to the National Food Authority. (PR)
