CAR leaders approve 6–year dev’t investment program
by PNA

Leaders in the Cordillera approved last week the Regional Development Investment Program (RDIP) for 2017-2022.

Governors, regional directors, representatives of the different non-government organizations who comprise the Regional Development Council (RDC) approved the plan, which when implemented will further improve the economic condition of the region and its people.

The program contains priority programs and projects to be implemented by regional line agencies, local government units, state universities and colleges (SUCs), and other government offices in the region.

This will contribute to the attainment of the six development goals of the Regional Development Program (RDP) and President Rodrigo Duterte’s 10-point socio-economic agenda.

National Economic Development Authority Regional Director Milagros Rimando said the attainment of the RDIP would boost the implementation of goals and the vision of Cordillera which would also serve as a basis and linkage in monitoring public investments towards the attainment of the goals and targets.

Rimando said they have conducted enhancement workshops for LGUs to repackage their projects to increase the cost of these.

She added that prior to the workshops, the projects amounted to P175 billion but was increased to P225B because of the enhanced workshops where programs were defined, planned out, and the specifics were included, making them more doable with higher chances of getting a budget allocation.

The RDIP is a list of the region’s priority projects, which were culled from the plans and programs of line agencies, state colleges and universities, LGUs, and other sectors.

The cost of the programs for the social development industry and services is P62B; industry and services, P56B; infrastructure development, P53B; agriculture and fisheries, P31B; good governance and rule of law, P13.9B; and environment and natural resources, P7.9B.

In terms of geographic distribution, the bulk will go to the regional budget, which is getting P54B of the RDIP fund followed by Benguet and Kalinga, each getting P33B.

Apayao, one of the poorest provinces in the country, gets P32B; Mountain Province, P27B; and Baguio, P20B.

Abra gets P12B and Ifugao gets P11Bfrom the RDIP fund.

Rimando said that the workshop was aimed at getting a higher chance of getting a budget allocation at the national level. “This is to increase the chances of the projects to be included in the national government’s list.”

The plan included capital assistance projects that will contribute to the capital investments enabling the environment to stimulate growth. Technical assistance projects include institutional and human resource capacity building activities, research, feasibility studies, and master plans.
