Nabunturan, Davao de Oro– Davao de Oro Governor Jayvee Tyron L. Uy is set to deliver his State of the Province Address on January 20, 2020, 1 PM at the new session hall of the Legislative Building at the Provincial Capitol Compound, Nabunturan, Davao de Oro. This is the first major event after the renaming of the province last December 7, 2019.
The governor is expected to outline the accomplishments of the provincial government under the Bayanihan 4P’s Framework, which stands for Planet (Environmental Management and Disaster Preparedness), People (Social Protection and Human Development), Prosperity (Economic Development), Peace (Peace, Justice, and Security), and Plus (Good Governance).
Governor Uy is expected to highlight the advancements of Davao de Oro, especially its rise in the business competitiveness index, its low malnutrition incidence, the ongoing campaign against illegal drugs, and many other achievements.
The governor quipped that his state of the province will adopt a simpler tone this time.
“We will deliver a report that is short, simple yet substantial. We will be more transparent. We’ll do away with glitz and glamour. We will focus on reporting on the milestones we achieved together and the things we are still yet to realize,” he said.
The State of the Province Address will be shown through Facebook. Viewing stations will be mounted in all eleven municipalities so that many can listen and access the governor’s report.
Governor Uy also mentioned that the province’s new seal and hymn will be launched on the same date as his State of the Province Address. Last year, he formed the Davao de Oro Transition Committee to lead the creation of the new corporate seal and hymn of the province.
The new name of the province was ratified overwhelmingly last December 7, 2019 in a plebiscite supervised by the Commission on Elections.
