President Rodrigo Roa Duterte resumes his visit to the different regions in the country to emphasize the administration’s peace and development initiatives as he presides over the Joint Meeting of the National Task Force – Regional Task Force to End Local Communist Armed Conflict (NTF-RTF ELCAC) in Region IV-A at the Quezon Convention Center in Lucena City, Quezon on October 21, 2021.
The joint meeting serves as an opportunity to discuss the recent achievements of the Task Force in CALABARZON (Cavite-Laguna-Batangas-Rizal-Quezon) and to fast track the planned development in the insurgency-cleared communities in Region IV-A. Each barangay is set to receive PhP20 million to finance various socio-economic development programs in their respective areas.
During the program, President Duterte witnesses the handover of a copy of Republic Act (RA) No. 11524 or the Coconut Farmers and Industry Trust Fund Act, which paves the way for the efficient use of coconut levy in the livelihood of coconut farmers and benefit the coconut industry as a whole.
In December 2018, the President issued Executive Order No. 70 that institutionalized the whole-of-nation approach in attaining inclusive and sustainable peace, thereby creating a National Task Force to End Local Communist Armed Conflict and directing the adoption of a National Peace Framework.
