CatSU, DILG partner to empower LGUs through trainings


Catanduanes State University (CatSU) and the Department of Interior Local Governance (DILG) of the province recently met on March 8, 2023, to discuss a potential partnership aimed at empowering local government units (LGUs) through training.

The meeting was held at the DILG provincial office, with Provincial Director Uldarico Razal, Jr., and Dr. Ramon Felipe A. Sarmiento, the Vice President for Research, Extension, and Production Affairs of CatSU.

The partnership aims to provide basic training on parliamentary procedure, writing ordinances and minutes, resolutions, and other related skills to communities to help them govern themselves effectively.

These trainings will be made available to LGUs in the province to enhance their capacity and capability to govern. Both parties expressed their enthusiasm and commitment to the partnership, which they believe will have a positive impact on the province's communities.

Dr. Sarmiento shared the importance of empowering LGUs to achieve inclusive and sustainable growth.

"We believe that empowering the LGUs through training will lead to more efficient and effective governance, which will ultimately benefit the people of the province,” Dr. Sarmiento said.

PD Razal, Jr. also expressed his appreciation for the partnership, saying that the DILG is committed to working with CatSU to provide the necessary training to LGUs in the province.

He also shared that the DILG Office has reference books where students from CatSU can use in their research.

“Igwa kami uyang corner na magagamit nin mga estudyante nin CatSU para sa researches manungod sa local governance. Parte pa ini nin satuyang partnership. Bukas kami pirmi sa anuman na makatabang nin opisina,” the DILG Provincial Director said.

The training is expected to start soon, and both parties hope that it will result in better governance and improved quality of life for the province's communities. With this partnership, CatSU and DILG are taking a step towards empowering LGUs and building a stronger, more resilient province.  #FJBT
