NIA Administrator Antonio S. Nangel joined high level officials of Sorsogon during the Sorsogon Convergence Initiative for Rural Development held in Sorsogon on April 8, 2011. The convergence is one of the fora where issues for rural development are discussed and solutions formulated thru consultation with all stakeholders in the province. Bottomline is that all projects should be coordinated with other agencies for a synchronized approach.
Present during the convergence is no less than Congressman Salvador Escudero, and other local government officials. In that same occasion, Senator Chiz Escudero met with NIA Administrator Nangel to discuss priority irrigation projects in Sorsogon and elsewhere in the Bicol provinces. For his part, Administrator Nangel instructed Regional Manager William Ragodon and Interim IMO Manager Siervo Maglangit to prepare the Programs of Work of the identified irrigation projects and systems for inclusion either in CY 2011 or CY 2012 project implementation.
After the meeting, Administrator Nangel together with Regional Manager Ragodon visited some irrigation projects and systems in Sorsogon. It has been another productive trip for the hardworking NIA Administrator.
