President Ferdinand R. Marcos Jr. urged all local government officials to continue promoting good governance and meaningful cooperation in the shared goal of advancing the welfare of Filipinos as he administered the oath-taking of newly elected national and regional officers of the Provincial Board Members League of the Philippines (PBMLP) in a ceremony at Malacañan Palace.

Speaking before the new officials of PBMLP, the President emphasized the importance of strengthened partnership between local government units (LGUs) and the national government in the collective effort of promoting the needs of the nation and its citizens amidst the challenges.

“Let’s continue this. Let’s strengthen this partnership that we have, the local and national government. Because that is the only way that we can maximize the resources, the time and the energy that we are spending for the development of the Philippines,” President Marcos Jr. said.

For the past 35 years, the PBMLP remains a staunch partner of the national government in the conduct of good governance and achieving excellence in public service, anchored in the core ideas of capacity-building, effective legislation and advancement of general welfare of provinces.
