Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio urged members of the Regional Development Council in Davao Region to continue to work together to reduce poverty, revitalize and make local industries globally competitive in order to provide more jobs for the residents, consequently attaining an inclusive growth beneficial for all Davaoenos.
In delivering her final state of the region address during the last meeting of the RDC XI under her watch Wednesday, she cited all the efforts ventured by the group based on the direction set by President Benigno Simeon Aquino III towards inclusive growth and good governance.
She underscored that the gains in the RDC’s performance in the last three years were attained through the partnership of government agencies, stakeholders and private sector.
Duterte-Carpio noted that the Department of Energy, Energy Regulatory Commission, the National Power Corporation and the National Economic and Development Authority Board-Infrastructure Committee and other concerned agencies responded to the Regional Development Committee-Mindanao recommendations ranging from the selective dredging of the Pulangi river to increase generating efficiency of the Pulangi IV hydro electric power plant, funding of the Agus VI hydro electric power plant and the Iligan Diesel Power Plant to its optimal operation power generating capacity.
She said the compounded efficient operations of these power generating facilities will contribute to the overall available power of the Mindanao Power Grid now and in the immediate future.
