Local government units are at the forefront in responding to various issues such as natural disasters, local emergencies, as well as the COVID-19 pandemic. The implementation of policies that are aimed at advancing the wellbeing of the public is a collective effort from the government, businesses, and individuals. With this, it cannot be overstated that all stakeholders must continue working together, and in this process, local governments have a fundamental role to play.
This year marks the implementation of the Mandanas ruling, which augments local government resources, advances decentralization, and improves social services delivery in the Philippines. It is then important that collaborators engage in discussions on maximizing this opportunity for local development and economic recovery.
Join us at the Joint Foreign Chambers (JFC) event entitled "Transforming the Economic Growth Paradigm: Local Development through the Mandanas Ruling", as we discuss updates and developments on the adoption of the Mandanas ruling, as well as how it can further capacitate LGU programs and support measures even beyond the COVID-19 pandemic.
