Engr. Dominador Dumalag, provincial economic enterprise development officer, said he was informed by Harrison Gonzales, provincial community affairs officer, of the Governor’s designation in a text message last Wednesday dawn.

Perdices was selected by President Aquino from a list of three nominees submitted by the RDC, Dumalag said.

The RDC is the highest policy-making body in the region, and serves as the counterpart of the National Economic & Development Authority Board at the subnational level.

The RDC is the primary institution that coordinates and sets the direction of all economic and social development efforts in the region. It also serves as a forum where local efforts can be related and integrated with national development activities.

Dumalag said the Governor will be getting help from various agencies, such as the NEDA, which is the RDC secretariat.

Perdices, for his part, said he was thankful for the chance given by President Aquino for him to serve Central Visayas.

He said he was initially hesitant to accept the designation until he was assured by his staff of their full support for his RDC stint.

He said he is requesting for the RDC meeting to be held in Dumaguete once every quarter.

As chairman of the RDC, he said it is important to have all possible project proposals which could be submitted at a moment’s notice. And he has instructed them to study possible measures to be introduced before the RDC.

Perdices, who is undergoing chemotherapy for stomach cancer, said he hopes to accomplish something that will also benefit Negros Oriental before his term ends.
