Sorsogon starts organizing system in National Government Center


Sorsogon Governor Francis “Chiz” Escudero has called for a meeting with the representatives of National Government Agencies (NGAs) in the province.

The officials discussed the system in the National Government Center, which is still under construction.

“Pangunahing layunin sa pagpapatayo ng NGC ay ang pagkakaroon ng lalawigan ng iisang lokasyon para sa ibat-ibang ahensya ng pamahalaan dito sa Sorsogon upang mas mapabilis ang mga pang-gobyernong transaksyon ng mga Sorsoganon,” the province said.

The said center has a total land area of 2,621.21 square meters.

The first floor of the said center will house the offices of Philhealth, Department of Science and Technology (DOST), Philipline Information Agency (PIA), Philippine Red Cross, Coop Bank, Bureau of Treasury, Integrated Bar of the Philippines (IBP), National Commission on Indigenous People (NCIB), Philippine National Bank (PNB), Philippine Charity, Sweepstakes Office (PCSO), Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), Boy Scouts of the Philippines (BSP), Girl Scouts of the Philippines (GSP) and Philippine Fiber Industry Development Authority (FIDA).

“Samantalang ang pangalawang palapag ay magkakaroon naman ng conference rooms na maaaring gamitin ng libre ng ibat-ibang opisina,” said the province.

The government agencies that will benefit from the center are currently just renting. With the project, they could save some funds.

The NGC is seen to be finished by December this year.
