RESOLUTION CREATING A PCSD SPECIAL COMMITTEE ON BIMP-EAGA
WHEREAS, the PCSDS Executive Director is the Co-Chair of the Palawan Provincial Council on Brunei-Indonesia-Malaysia-Philippines – East Asean Growth Area (BIMP-EAGA), a regional economic cooperation of the four member countries aimed at facilitating economic growth in the East Asean region;
WHEREAS, Palawan’s inclusion in the coverage area of this growth polygon has brought in a number of investment opportunities in the province;
WHEREAS, in view of PCSD Resolution No. 99-146, requiring all projects or undertakings in Palawan to seek clearance or endorsement of PCSD prior to implementation, there is a need for PCSD to take active part in the activities of the BIMP-EAGA in order to apprise potential investors of the PCSD requirements;
WHEREAS, in view of the current workload of the PCSDS Executive Director in the affairs of the PCSD and the PCSDS, there is a great possibility that he could no longer attend to his functions as Co-Chair of the BIMP-EAGA Provincial Council. Thus, the creation of a special committee within the PCSD is suggested to actively pursue the interests of the PCSD in this regional cooperation;
WHEREFORE, on motion of Assemblyman Ali Montaha D.H. Babao, duly seconded, be it RESOLVED , as it is hereby RESOLVED, that a PCSD special committee on BIMP-EAGA be created;
RESOLVED FURTHER, that the special committee be composed of the representatives of the following sectors: (1) business sector, (2) non-governmental organization sector, and (3) the SPCPD.
RESOLVED FINALLY, that copies of this resolution be furnished the concerned representatives.
APPROVED and ADOPTED this 28th day of July 2000 in Puerto Princesa City.
