Hopes are high among local leaders and the private sector-led Regional Development Council (RDC)- 11 in Davao that under the leadership of President-elect Rodrigo Duterte, they will get a fair budget and achieve big ticket projects.
“I believe that with an incoming President hailing from Mindanao, particularly from our very own Davao Region, the prospects for better Davao Region of 4.89 million residents have become even brighter in terms of resources allocation, which we have aspired for and which this Council has long fought hard for,” said outgoing Davao Del Norte and RDC-11 chair Governor Rodolfo del Rosario in his State of the Region Address (SORA) at the National Economic Development Authority-RDC XI Conference Hall in Bangkal Tuesday.
