DIPOLOG CITY –  Having put in place the transformation toward good governance, the city government here  has successfully passed the proficiency stage of the Performance Governance System (PGS) under the auspices of the Institute for Solidarity in Asia (ISA).

In a public governance forum held on May 4 at the Philippine International Convention Center (PICC) in Pasay City, a PGS proficiency medallion was awarded to Mayor Evelyn T. Uy.
In the same occasion, Mayor Uy also she presented the city’s accomplishments and gains to attain its vision to be the center of outdoor sports of the South by the year 2020. Dipolog is gearing up for hosting various outdoor sports competitions and events in the next five years.
“We are happy that our efforts to transform our city through good governance is gaining grounds and is now being recognized. We will continue to push forward until we fully realize our dream and vision for Dipolog,” the lady mayor said.
Before the awarding of the PGS proficiency medallion, Dr. Jesus Estanislao, ISA chair and forerunner of PGS in the country told Mayor Uy that he admired “how Dipolog was able to make Vision Aligned Circles (VACs) work and make transformation inclusive.”
“You can proudly say that in Dipolog, even street sweepers and garbage collectors are part of good governance,” Estanislao added.
In a public revalida, Mayor Uy satisfactorily responded to all queries posed by the panelists led by Guillermo Luz, private sector-co-chair of the National Competitiveness Council (NCC).
