Govt. opens dialogues in Cebu

CEBU CITY – Presidential Communications Operations Office (PCOO) Secretary Martin Andanar led the second regional town hall meeting here as part of the Duterte administration’s continuing efforts to bring government services closer to the people.
“You can confront the top officials of the line agencies in a constructively critical conversation for the public services that you, the people, expect to be delivered. The bureaucratic web of problems and glitches can expeditiously evaporate, with dialogue, and direct resolutions,” Andanar said.
The Dagyaw 2019: Open Government and Participatory Governance Regional Dialogues encourage participation in dialogues between government agencies, the public, and other stakeholders. This initiative likewise aims to solicit ideas and stories that would help, not only in crafting new landmark reforms, but also in further strengthening existing measures.
“Dagyaw, or bayanihan, in the language of our origins, is the name we have chosen to underline the concerted cooperation of the major pillars of our reformed governance. These are: the people, the lead persons of the executive departments, and the president,” Andanar said.
“This is the triumvirate convergence of the objective of dagyaw, which is simply, the participation of the people in governance,” the PCOO chief added.
Dagyaw is a Hiligaynon term for “bayanihan,” which exemplifies the concept of “togetherness.” It is envisioned to be one of the main government campaigns that will provide avenues for productive, valuable, sincere, and visible engagement between government and the people at the local level.
“This is participatory democracy in action, where the seated spectators are the people themselves, all of you,” Andanar told the town hall meeting participants.
Andanar also highlighted the results of the recent Social Weather Stations (SWS) survey. The survey showed President Duterte’s public satisfaction rating reaching a new record-high in the second quarter of 2019 in which 80 percent of Filipinos are satisfied.
He also emphasized the importance of freedom of information, which opens for the people the documents and data of the entire executive departments except those involving highly classified national security matters. (With a report from Cebu Examiner)
