“I think we would like to see all the stakeholders in the Cordillera sit down and discuss among themselves and reach a common ground or consensus that would really promote the principle of autonomy and see it realize in your own region,” Coloma said during a presscon Friday.

He also called on the members of the press to also contribute their share in promoting a constructive dialogue so that there would be a broad base consensus among the stakeholders and help in the realization of the aspiration of the people in Cordillera for faster progress in the region through autonomy.
