Undersecretary for Local Government Austere A. Panadero introduced the delegation to the political structure in the Philippines while tackling the basic concepts of the local government unit (LGU) landscape.
“These officials from Bangladesh flew great distance to learn from us, that’s why we want to make sure that when they’re home, they would be able to bring in some relevant knowledge from us,” said Panadero.
Apart from the DILG Undersecretary, other resource persons from the DILG indulged the foreign guests on the decentralization and local governance of the Philippines and the Seal of Good Local Governance, an incentivized program of DILG sighting outstanding LGUs.
The Bangladeshi delegation headed by Shohrab Hossain, Local Government Division of Bangladesh Joint Secretary, spoke of gratitude to the warm welcome and relevant information shared by the speakers.
“We appreciate the information that you have shared. We are going to reflect on these learnings and hopefully mirror the same in our country and our respective districts,” said Hossain. The delegation, including the upcoming three batches, are also set to visit.
