Secretary Michael Lloyd Dino, who was the guest of honor and speaker during the 81st Induction Ceremony of the Negros Press Club at SMX Convention Center in Bacolod City Saturday, April 8, said he is advocating for connectivity of Regional Development Councils (RDCs) in Regions 6, 7, 8 and 18 or Negros Island Region (NIR). Dino urged Negrenses to strengthen the private sector representation in the RDC-NIR as he pointed out that it is easy to lobby for the “One Visayas” projects if there is unity among the public and private sectors. “One of the promises of President Rodrigo Duterte is to interconnect islands in the Visayas,” he said, stressing that the “enthusiasm and dynamism of the leaders will mean a no non-sense ocean of projects for the people.”
