by | Posted on: May 7th, 2020 | No Comments | News

President Rodrigo Roa Duterte has approved the “Balik Probinsya, Bagong Pag-Asa” program.

This is one of the ways the government sees to decongest the National Capital Region, particularly during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Likewise, the president signed an Executive Order 114 to create a council for the Balik Probinsya, Bagong Pag-Asa. This will provide direction on the proper implementation of the program to make sure that the other government agencies will follow.

Executive Secretary Salvador Medialdea is appointed to spearhead the council while the socio-economic planning secretary will serve as the vice-chairperson.
