City of San Fernando, Pampanga – Anti-Red Tape Authority (ARTA) Secretary Ernesto Perez commended Governor Dennis “Delta” Pineda for setting an example of excellence in best practices for other local government units to emulate.
This was gleaned from the benchmarking activity, which was attended by several ARTA and provincial government officials at the SP Session Hall on Wednesday, July 12.
“Alam naman natin na kapag ang lider has that political will, ‘di po excuse ang pagkakaroon ng limited resources, nasa diskarte ng lider ‘yan. ‘Pag ang lider ay proactive and has that political will, nothing is impossible in terms of rendering proper service to the people. And so, we congratulate Governor Delta for setting the standard for best practice in Pampanga for all other LGUs to follow,” said Sec. Perez.
He also disclosed that the Authority will recommend a unified standard requirement for the provision of medical assistance to the Office of the President.
“Dito sa Pampanga, napakaganda ng service. Wala nang iintindihin, ‘pag may-sakit ka, full-assistance ang government. We can benchmark their best practices for all other LGUs to follow,” said Sec. Perez.
The benchmarking activity is aimed at discussing ease of doing business initiatives and promoting a whole-of-government approach in adopting simplified requirements and procedures to expedite government transactions, particularly in the provision of medical assistance.
Governor Delta, for his part, thanked the Authority for recognizing Pampanga as one of the provinces with the best practices in the provision of medical assistance.
“Nagpapasalamat po ako’t nandito kayo to observe one of our best programs po rito sa Pampanga, which is the medical assistance. Sana makatulong po kami,” said the governor. —Jasmine Jaso/Pampanga PIO
