THE 12-POINT agenda of Mayor Sebastian Duterte’s administration was unveiled on Thursday during the gathering of Davao City officials from the executive and legislative branches to formulate the Executive and Legislative Agenda for 2023-2025 at the Arcadia Event Center.

Acting City Administrator Francis Mark Layog presented the 12-point priority agenda of Mayor Duterte.

The 12 other key priority areas are poverty alleviation; infrastructure development; sustainable environment; health; education and human resource development; agriculture and agribusiness; business and industrial support development; transportation planning and traffic management; peace and order; disaster risk reduction and mitigation; good governance through innovative ICT; and tourism and development and support services.

These programs were included in the discussion of around 200 representatives of city government offices, the Sangguniang Panlungsod, and the Department of the Interior and Local Government.

City Planning and Development Coordinator Engr. Ivan C. Cortez said that the ELA is a DILG requirement that should be formulated within the first 100 days of every new administration. 

He said that the ELA would set the development direction of the city government, together with the Sangguniang Panlungsod, for the next three years.

As discussed by DILG Davao Director Vicky Sarcena, the “ELA will also become the basis for the Local Development Investment Plan (LDIP)”. 

The LDIP will contain the executive and legislative list of projects and programs for funding from all sources. 

Mayor Baste Duterte, in his speech, urged the executive and legislative offices to work together to implement priority projects and programs to be identified under the ELA.
