MANILA, Philippines — The government on Saturday simultaneously launched caravans providing accessible government services in four different provinces.
The caravan called “Bagong Pilipinas Serbisyo Fair” started in Ilocos Norte, Leyte, Davao de Oro and Camarines Sur.
“It is a program that attempts to make an attempt to make a bagong-pag-asa during a bagong simulation of Pilipino,” said President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. in Camarines Sur, where he attended the launch.
(This program is just one of the government’s first steps to provide Filipinos with new hope and a new beginning.)
According to President Marcos, various government agencies will come together in one place to provide the necessary assistance and information that people in the provinces need.
The services made available during the launch are the following:
- Kadiwa ng Pangulo (a farmer-to-consumer program)
- Passport on wheels
- Driver’s license registration and assistance
- National ID
- Pag-IBIG Fund
- Application for approval from the National Bureau of Investigation
- Request a police statement
“Lahat ito ay puwedeng mag dito upang hindi na ninyo kailangan pang lumayo para magkaroon ng mga ito,” the President added.
(Anyone can apply for all of these without having to travel far.)
In addition to the mentioned services, the government also provided assistance to the people in the provinces.
According to the palace, the Department of Agriculture, the Philippine Coconut Authority, the Philippine Center for Postharvest Development and Mechanization and the National Dairy Authority distributed agricultural machinery and equipment to the farmers.
The Bureau of Fishery and Aquatic Resources, on the other hand, distributed fish cage kits and motorized boats to fishermen, while the Ministry of Health provided wheelchairs to those who needed them.
Meanwhile, Ilocos Norte Representative Ferdinand Alexander “Sandro” Araneta Marcos III was in Ilocos Norte to launch the services fair, while Chairman Martin Romualdez was in Leyte and Special Assistant to the President Anton Lagdameo was in Davao de Oro.
The palace said the Bagong Pilipinas Serbisyo Fair will use nearly P1 billion for the convergence of government services aimed at reaching different communities in the country.
