The Palawan Sangguniang Panlalawigan has approved the 2021 budget of the province amounting to P3.6 billion.

The SP approved the budget during their 71st regular session last December 15.

Board Member Ryan Maminta said that the next year’s budget is higher by P400 million than the 2020 Budget.

“Mas malaki ito ng halos 400 milyon kaysa noong nakaraang 2020 at halos nasa 800 milyon naman kumpara noong 2019, ibig sabihin tumataas ‘yong nagiging pondo ng Pamahalaang Panlalawigan taun-taon at nasa 10 hanggang 12 porsiyento ang pagtaas nito taun-taon at sa susunod na taon ay inaasahan naman na tataas uli ang pondo ng Pamahalaang Panlalawigan” said BM Maminta.

Highest allocation was earmarked for the I-HELP program of the Provincial Government, particularly on health infrastructure and livelihood.

“Mas malaking porsiyento at pinakamalaki halos ‘yong focus ng Provincial Government na nakita ko sa pag-aaral natin doon sa tinatawag na pagpapatuloy pa rin ng I-HELP Program ng ating Provincial Governor,” Maminta said.

“Ah this time, ‘yong health at ‘yong infrastructure pati ‘yong livelihood programs talagang natutukan at ‘yong kapasidad ng Pamahalaang Panlalawigan para doon sa tinatawag na malasakit sa mga kababayan natin ay mas malaki ‘yong pondong inilaan doon in terms of programs and projects ng Pamahalaang Panalalawigan” Maminta added.
