Atty. Ofelio A. Tactac Jr., DILG Aurora Provincial Director, graced the event with his remarkable message of pursuit of good governance despite the challenges that the pandemic brought not only Province but the whole country. He emphasized that LGUs must continue their commitment to progress and to take on greater challenges toward the achievement of their visions to sustainable governance.

The Local Road Network Development Plan (LRNDP), as one of the innovative requirements of the Conditional Matching Grant to Provinces (CMGP) Program, embodies the DILG's advocacy to continuously steer the Provincial Governments' capacity to contribute to the achievement of a sustainable socio-economic development. It is an integrated 3 to 5-year development plan for the sustainable management of provincial road networks and is supported by multi-year budgeting and expenditure management.
