Continuing cooperation and unity among Cordillera provinces and cities is the key in in pushing for regional autonomy and development. This was emphasized by Baguio City Mayor Mauricio Domogan during the closing program of the 26th Cordillera Month celebration at the Saint Louis University (SLU) Prince Bernard Gymnasium, Friday.
Giving emphasis on the 26th CAR month theme, “Bridging One Green Cordillera”, Domogan outlined the importance of continuing unity and cooperation among Cordillerans in pushing for regional autonomy, which is believed to strengthen the region’s hold as the watershed cradle of Northern Luzon, as well as in bringing further progress even in the mountainous communities in the region.
“Let us show that we are united as Cordillera people in clamoring for regional autonomy”, Domogan said.
Under an autonomous set up, Domogan pointed out that the region can hasten economic development and the protection, preservation and proper utilization of Cordillera’s rich natural resources, which he said as hard to attain under the present set-up.
