Romualdez: Gov’t service caravan to reach all provinces

All provinces will be reached by President Ferdinand Marcos Jr.’s Bagong Pilipinas Serbisyo Fair (BPSF)—the country’s biggest service caravan—to serve millions of Filipino-beneficiaries after the resounding success of its launch held simultaneously in four provinces on Saturday.

Speaker Martin Romualdez, one of the principal organizers of the caravan that aims to bring more than 60 government services closer to the people, said the BPSF will visit all 82 provinces.

“The government under the Marcos Jr. administration is just here – very, very active and very much present. That is what the Bagong Pilipinas Serbisyo Fair is telling us,” he said.

“The Serbisyo Fair truly breathed life into the aspirations of the President to bring so many government programs within the reach of people who may not have the means to avail of these benefits. I am truly proud of what we have accomplished here, from our dry run in Biliran to our ambitious and simultaneous grand launch in four provinces. We could not have done this without the vision of our President,” he added.

The grand launch of the BPSF in the town of Nabua in Camarines Sur was led by Mr. Marcos. It was launched simultaneously in Laoag, Ilocos Norte; Tolosa town in Leyte in Visayas; and in the Municipality of Monkayo, Davao de Oro in Mindanao.

Romualdez said the caravan, with a fund of about P1 billion, is expected to initially benefit over 400,000 Filipinos seeking to avail of the services offered by various government agencies.

In his speech during the launching, President Marcos said: “Although we are separated by islands, we are united by one spirit and one dream: a New Philippines for New Filipinos.”
