Aussie envoy cites MisOr leadership

CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY – The Australian ambassador to the Philippines yesterday cited the provincial government of Misamis Oriental and the leadership of Governor Oscar S. Moreno particularly in its ongoing infrastructure development program.

“Congratulations to Misamis Oriental for having been chosen among the beneficiaries of the Philippines Roads Management Facility (PRMF), a reflection of the commitment of the provincial government and the tract record of leadership in the province,” Ambassador Rod Smith said.

Misamis Oriental is one of the seven provinces selected to be among the recipients of a Aus$100-million grant from the Australian Aid, backed by a P4-million counterpart from the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG). The provinces of Agusan del Sur, Bohol, Bukidnon, Guimaras, Misamis Occidental, and Surigao del Norte are the other beneficiaries.

Mr. Smith graced yesterday’s signing ceremony of the Memorandum of Arrangement for the Australian Aid for International Development funded PRMF project.

The PRMF project, which involves road rehabilitation and maintenance, capacity-building and technical assistance, will initially be undertaken on a 20-kilometer stretch of road that passes through the hinterland barangays of Patag, Bagocboc, Tingalan and Nangkaon in Opol municipality.

The MOA was signed by the Australian envoy together with DILG undersecretary Austere A. Panadero and Moreno in the presence of Vice Governor Norris Babiera and DILG 10 Regional Director Loreto T. Bhagwani.

Witnessing the ceremony were provincial board members, Mayor Dixon Yasay of Opol, Mayor Redentor Salvaleon of Claveria, and the chairpersons of Bagocboc, Nangkaon, Patag, and Tingalan of Opol. (Uriel C. Quilinguing)
