NEDA Development Information Staff Director Nerrisa T. Esguerra briefed the officials and regional directors of the Philippine Information Agency (PIA) on AmBisyon Natin 2040 last January 11 at the B Hotel, Quezon City.
Esguerra also presented the framework of the 2017-2022 Philippine Development Plan (PDP), which adopts AmBisyon Natin 2040, and which is currently being finalized.
PIA Director-General Harold Clavite said that PIA will offer NEDA its full support in promoting the PDP 2017-2022 and AmBisyon Natin 2040 through road shows, media coverage, and through its social media channels.
He said that the PIA regional offices will be in full gear in disseminating NEDA’s materials to local government units and barangays. Clavite also mentioned that PIA is willing to reproduce and translate NEDA’s promotional materials to different local dialects.
“We earnestly encourage you to promote this down to the grass roots, and lend AmBisyon Natin 2040 your own local flavor. We need Filipinos across regions and sectors to understand and own the national Long Term Vision,” Esguerra told PIA regional directors.
