IAG Executive Director Benedicto Bacani is attending the 7th Malaysian–German Security Dialogue, a meeting of experts and decision-makers from Malaysia and Germany happening on August 29-30, 2018 in Kuala Lumpur.
Officials working for the eventual ratification of the Bangsamoro Organic Law in a plebiscite next year underscored the role of Mindanao barangay officials in informing the public about the law and its lasting benefits for the country.
Mindanao congressmen expressed support to the Cordillera's regional autonomy bid, just like how congressmen from the north supported the Bangsamoro Organic Law.
Cordilleran and Mindanaoan legislators vowed to pass House Bill 5343, a bill that seeks to establish the Autonomous Region in the Cordillera. This was manifested during the first deliberation on HB 5343 held by the Committee on Local Government on Tuesday, August 14, 2018.
