Misamis Occidental Governor Philip T. Tan is the only nominee to become the new Chairperson of the Northern Mindanao Regional Development Council (RDC-X) for the term 2019-2022.
Tan can assume the post once President Rodrigo officially appoints him. Meanwhile, the new set of officers took their oath during the RDC-X reorganizational meeting held last August 16 at the Lambago Hall of N Hotel with Cagayan de Oro Archbishop Rev. Antonio J. Ledesma administering the oath and led the pledge of commitment.
The RDC is the highest planning and policy-making body in the region and serves as the counterpart of the National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) Board at the sub-national level. It is the primary institution that coordinates and sets the direction of all economic and social development efforts in the region.
