The Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) welcomes President Ferdinand ‘BongBong’ R. Marcos, Jr.’s move to create a team tasked to delve into the full devolution and decentralization of functions from the national government agencies (NGAs) to the local government units (LGUs).

We remain committed to bridging the concerns of the LGUs to the current administration as we continue to pursue a middle ground in the implementation of full devolution arising from the implementation of the Supreme Court ruling on the Mandanas-Garcia petitions. The DILG embraces the critical responsibility of leading this special team taking into account the primordial mandate of the LGUs to provide the highest quality of public service to their constituents.

The DILG understands that full devolution can be challenging for our LGUs, hence, we commit to creating a safe environment where they can air their concerns and sentiments towards a more productive exchange of ideas and its improved implementation.

Patuloy po kaming magiging kaisa ng mga lokal na pamahalaan tungo sa mas maunlad at progresibong bansa.
