CITY OF SAN FERNANDO — To strengthen socio-economic development in the province and help more Kapampangans — this is the goal of Gov. Dennis “Delta” Pineda in this second term.

During the inaugural session of the Sangguniang Panlalawigan held on June 11 at the New Legislative Building at the Capitol Compound, Gov Pineda said he will focus on implementing his 12-point development agenda.

These include enhancing food security in the province; enhancing health services towards a comprehensive, responsive, and resilient provincial health system; expanding educational assistance and support to Kapampangan students; providing responsive and inclusive social services for the marginalized; strengthening support programs for the private sector for effective economic recovery; ensuring appropriate training and employment opportunities for the labor force; boosting of tourism promotion and development; advancing disaster and climate change resilience and environment preservation for resilient Kapampangan communities; upholding peace, order, and security for safe communities; promoting youth development by engaging and empowering young Kapampangans; accelerating digital transformation in the province; and advancing participatory, responsive, and accountable governance.

Ipagpapatuloy at mas paiigtingin pa po natin itong ating mga nasimulang programa, lalo na ang mga pangkalusugan at pang-agrikultura,” said the governor, adding that he aspires to have a more advanced health system that can deal with emerging new viruses and diseases; and an affordable and sufficient food supply in the province that may also benefit local food producers.

He will also continue to reach out to various sectors that were gravely affected by calamities that struck the province.

Patuloy tayo sa pagbibigay ng iba’t-ibang assistance, gaya ng medical, relief, food, cash, at educational assistance, lalo na sa ating mga marginalized, at sectoral groups tulad ng senior citizens, centenarians, PWDs, IPs, solo parents, children, scavengers, coastal at upland communities, at iba pa,” he said.

The governor will also strengthen ties with the business and labor sectors in order to hasten the recovery of the province from the economic fallout caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

He also urged the Kapampangans to help and support his administration as he believes that cooperation and unity among stakeholders will boost the province’s ability to move forward in terms of economic recovery, peace, and prosperity.
