DAVAO CITY—The recent executive-legislative agenda (ELA) meeting in Davao de Oro had built a consensus for a long-term work of encouraging more investments in agriculture as well as eco-tourism activities.

The joint focus by the executive department and the legislative branch was finalized in a commitment that both branches would cooperate on the agenda for the next two years.

The officials envisioned Davao de Oro to be the leading agri-investment and eco-agri tourism destination in Mindanao by 2040, “With God-loving, culturally inclusive, and empowered stewards of resources living in safe, clean, and resilient ecosystems enjoying a progressive and competitive economy sustained with good governance.”

The ELA is divided into five parts: social services, economic development and poverty reduction, physical and infrastructure development, environmental management and local administration and financial management.

Governor Dorothy Montejo-Gonzaga and Vice Governor Jayvee Tyron Uy led the commitment signing of the Davao de Oro ELA 2023-2025.

Gonzaga has asked for cooperation and support as the provincial government “implements the projects as stated in the ELA.”

“We need your utmost cooperation. We need your prayers that we be united to have a smooth sailing in running the ship toward our destined port in 2025,” she added.

Gonzaga said the ELA was “a vehicle steered by the officials towards a better province in 2025.”

“It’s the boat. It’s the ship. It’s the very vehicle that we will ride as steered by the Governor, Vice Governor, and SP Members,” Gonzaga said.

Uy has expressed the full support of the Sangguniang Panlalawigan (SP) to the current administration.

“We in the SP, on behalf of all the board members, since they are main characters on this, will give our 100 percent support to our new governor in her direction, vision for our province, and to the initiatives towards a more improved province of Davao de Oro,” Uy said.

Uy added the ELA marked the beginning of more cooperation and collaborations between the executive and legislative bodies.

“Hopefully, this is the start of good relationship, of course more collaboration, more consultations, and helping each other for the success of our works here in our province,” he said.
