PIA-7 OIC-Regional Director Fayette Riñen explains the PIA Information Kiosk is an avenue in raising awareness on the significance, relevance and positive impacts of ASEAN to Filipinos especially as the Philippines assumes the chairmanship of the ASEAN Summit and related meetings this year.

Apart from being a platform to promote ASEAN but also an effective outlet to disseminate programs of government from the regional line agencies down to the local government units.

“You can use this to display your information materials and let the people know about your programs, services, and projects. This is also a way of reporting to the people what the government is doing for us,” Riñen said.

“We hope that the people using this port will also take time to read the information materials that are on display here,” she added

MANILA (PIA)—Ang nasud sa Pilipinas ubos ni Pangulo Rodrigo Duterte malamposong nangulo sa gipahigayon nga 30th ASEAN summit didto sa Manila sa milabay nga Abril 29.


Ang Presidente sa Pilipinas nakigtagbo sa mga lider sa pulo (10) ka nasud sa ASEAN ug nangulo sa mga hilisgutan mahitungod sa kalamboan sa rehiyon ug pakiglambigit sa mga ASEAN Member States (AMS) aron mapalig-on ang maayong relasyon tali sa maong mga nasud.


Bahin sa ekonomikanhong kalihokan ang ASEAN kinahanglang mopatugbaw sa micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) pinaagi sa pagsinabtanay ug tinabangay alang sa malamboong ekonomiya ilabi na sa hugpong sa katawhan nga kabus, matud ni Pangulong Duterte.


Gipalanog usab sa Presidente ang  sektor sa MSME nga maoy mopa angat sa ekonomiya sa rehiyon pinaagi sa pakiglambigit tumong sa “people-oriented, people-centered ASEAN.”


Si Pangulong Duterte ug Indonesian President Joko Widodo milusad bag-ohay lang  sa ASEAN Roll-on Roll-off (RORO) subay sa Davao-General Santos-Bitung route nga maghatag ug kahigayonan sa mga Pilipinong negosyante ilabi na ang gikan sa Mindanao ug Palawan nga madala ang ilang produkto nga baligya sa Bitung ug ubang dapit sa Indonesia.


Mga produkto gikan sa Pilipinas nga mahimong ipaabot sa Indonesia mao ang animal feeds, aqua products, charcoal, coffee, beans, construction materials, copra, feed ingredients, fertilizers, food and beverages, fresh fruits, ice cream products, meats, peanuts, poultry (halal), soya, sugar ug synthetics.


Ang “sub-regional cooperation” gituohang mohatud ug modani pa ug dugang negosyo nga makatabang ug mopalambo sa kinabuhi sa mga katawhan. (lpp/PIA7/Negros Oriental/This article was originally published at PIA Website on May 7, 2017)
