Members of the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM) Regional Development Administration Committee (RDAC) convened on January 20, 2017 to finalize the draft for the four chapter entries of the Regional Development Plan (RDP) 2017-2022.
The RDAC will then submit the enhanced four-chapter draft to the Regional Economic Development Planning Board (REDPB) to form part of the RDP.
The committee, chaired by the regional Department of Interior Local Government (DILG) , is responsible for planning strategic steps to ensure the attainment of the development outcomes of the sectors in good governance, peace order and safety, access to justice, and fiscal policy.
Along with the RDAC, the Regional Economic Development Committee, Regional Infrastructure Development Committee, Regional Admnistration Development Committee, and the Regional Social Development Committee, are also finalizing their designated entries to the RDP.
The RDP, as the regional counterpart of the Philippine Development Plan (PDP), is consistent with the national plan of the National Economic Development Authority (NEDA) to establish foundations for inclusive growth, high trust society and globally competitive economy.
The regional plan will form part of the Annexes to the PDP, covering the six-year term of President Rodrigo Duterte, and is set to be released this February.
The PDP shall focus on regional, infrastructure, agriculture, and culture development and the strategies of the government in attaining the long-term vision and socio-economic agenda of the Duterte administration, as well as the attainment of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.
