Sep 4, 2018 @ 14:40

Baguio City Mayor Mauricio Domogan lauded President Rodrigo Duterte for giving the needed support for Cordillera’s quest for autonomy.

The Baguio politiko said that compared to previous administrations, Cordillera’s push for self-governance was immediately given attention by the Duterte administration.

Domogan said the Cordillera’s quest for autonomy were previously “sidelined” during previous administrations.

“We recognize the efforts of President Duterte and his trusted Cabinet members in helping us advance our clamor for the establishment of an autonomous region in both chambers of Congress because it is through autonomy that the Cordillera can appropriately advance its development thrusts,” he explained.

Domogan also said the creation of the Autonomous Region in the Cordillera (ARC) will empower the regional government “to craft applicable programs, projects and activities in the region with lesser restraint from outside forces apart from receiving from the national government the needed support in terms of the provision of equitable resources.”
