Discussions included the status of the NGRP Bill in the 19th Congress from August 2022 up to March 2023 where House Bill No. 7240 or ‘An Act Rightsizing the National Government to Improve Public Service Delivery, and Appropriating Funds Thereof’ was approved last month by the House of Representatives.

The attendees included Presidential Legislative Liaison Office (PLLO) Secretary Mark Llandro Mendoza, Department of Budget and Management (DBM) Undersecretary Wilford Will Wong, PLLO Assistant Secretary Rose Virginie Iñigo and DBM Director John Aries Macaspac.

Executive Secretary Lucas Bersamin, Special Assistant to the President (SAP) Secretary Antonio Ernesto Lagdameo Jr. and Presidential Communications Office (PCO) Secretary Cheloy Velicaria-Garafil joined President Marcos Jr. in the meeting.
