Occidental Mindoro Rep. Nene Ramirez Sato is happy to liaise with her fellow officials to address the concerns of her constituents.

Sato, in a Facebook post, shared that she had a productive meeting with Transportation Secretary Arthur Tugade, Philippine Ports Authority General Manager Jay Santiago, and coast guard and Maritime Industry Authority officials.

The meeting was held to discuss a PPA circular about the allowable freight or trucks and cargo being loaded on RORO vessels.

According to Sato, the Department of Transportation would form a technical working group to discuss the circular. The group would meet this week.

She also got assurance from Tugade that it would support small agricultural producers from Occidental Mindoro and would give them access and priority in the RORO vessels.

This would help boost the agriculture industry in the province, she added.

She also relayed her concerns about the need to upgrade the San Jose airport and the Santa Teresa Pier in Magsaysay.

This is an example of the executive and the legislative working in harmony!

“Makabuluhan po ang ating naging pakiki-pagpulong ngayong araw na ito kay DOTr Sec. Art Tugade, General Manager Jay Santiago ng Philippine Ports Authority (PPA) at mga opisyal ng MARINA at Phil. Coast Guard. Kasama ko po sa pulong na ito sina Romblon Rep.Budoy Madrona at AGAP Party List Rep. Rico Geron. Kaugnay po ito sa mga Circulars ng PPA na may kinalaman sa allowable freight ng mga trucks at cargoes sa mga RORO.

Napagkasunduan po namin ang mga sumusunod:

1. Ang DOTr ay magbubuo ng Technical Working Group (TWG) mula sa mga pinuno ng DOTr, PPA, MARINA, LTO, LTFRB at Coast Guard upang masusing pag-aralan ang PPA A.O. No. 02-2012 at PPA A.O. No. 05-2019 kaugnay sa pinapayagang timbang ng mga trucks at cargoes na sasakay ng RORO.

2. Nilinaw ni Sec. Tugade na kailangang maayos na mabigyan ng suporta ang mga maliliit na agricultural producers, lalo na sa mga island provinces gaya ng OkSi, para sa access at priority sa RORO. Ito ay mahalaga sa paglago ng agricultural sector at lokal na ekonomiya.

3. Ang TWG ay kagyat na mag-pupulong ngayon Linggo. Ang mga kinatawan ng truckers association ay aanyayahan sa pulong na ito.

Sinamantala din natin ang pagkakataon upang idulog kay Sec. Tugade ang pag improve ng San Jose airport, upang i-upgrade ang mga equipment at magkaroon ng night flight eligibility. Ipinaabot na din natin ang pangangailangan upang maayos ang Sta. Teresa Pier sa Magsaysay.

Maraming Salamat po, Sec. Art Tugade,” Sato posted.
