RP Government streamlining

The Office of the President (OP) of the Philippines recently abolished 10 agencies under it, in a move to streamline operations under it. The move is projected to result in savings in annual budget of some PhP 305 million. The agencies abolished are:

  • Presidential Anti-Smuggling Group
  • Presidential Anti-Graft Commission
  • Mindanao Development Council
  • Office of the North Luzon Quadrangle Area
  • Office of External Affairs
  • Minerals Development Council
  • Luzon Urban Beltway Super Region
  • Bicol River Basin Watershed Management Project
  • Office of the Presidential Adviser on Global Warming and Climate Change
  • Office of the Presidential Adviser on New Government Centers.

Removing certain agencies that add fiscal burden to the already tight annual budget of the government, unburdening taxpayers in the process, and strengthening those agencies that have primary obligations for certain tasks, is among the bright moves of the new administration.
