Provincial Administrator Rafael F. Baraan appealed to all provincial employees to spearhead in the province’s core thrusts of development that requires order in terms of management and cleanliness at home and workplace.
This developed as the province celebrates the 22nd National Statistics Month with the theme, “Quality Social Protection Statistics for Focused Targeting: Improving Outcomes, Changing Lives.”
During the regular flag raising ceremony held October 11 at the Capitol grounds here, the provincial administrator said that obtaining order in terms of management aptly calls for management informative standard reporting which requires organized, improved and enhanced reporting on a sectoral basis starting from the simplest data up to the most complicated ones.
Maintaining cleanliness and order at home and workplace, he said, is one of the most recent programs conceptualized by Governor Amado T. Espino, Jr. as a manifestation of one’s love for the province and for one’s identity.
Meanwhile, Provincial Planning and Development Officer Benita Pizarro said that several activities will serve as the highlights of the statistics month that includes the blessing and launching of the National Statistics Information Center located at the second floor of Malong building here on October 24.
The center, she revealed, is the first in the entire region and the sixth in the country, will serve as a one-stop information center that will contain all necessary statistical data involving the province.
It will be recalled that Panagasinan was cited as the Best NSM Province in Region 1 for three consecutive years (2008 to 2010) thus earning the Hall of Fame Award for consistently being the champion in statistics-related activities.
This year’s celebration is chaired by Sangguniang Panlalawigan Member Raul Sison and co-chaired by Provincial Health Officer Ana Maria de Guzman and Provincial Social Welfare and Development Officer Emilio Samson. (PIO/Ruby R. Bernardino)
