The Senior Officials Meeting on Rural Development and Poverty Eradication (SOMRDPE) chaired by NAPC Officer-in-Charge/Undersecretary Paterna M. Ruiz held an Inter-Sectoral dialogue on August 11, 2022, via Zoom video platform.


Inter-sectoral dialogue aims to enrich the Master Plan development process with contributions from key ASEAN Sectoral Bodies concerned with rural development in the region and to garner their support and active participation in its implementation.


In her opening message, NAPC OIC/Undersecretary Ruiz emphasized that the master plan will be their beacon in promoting a comprehensive and cross-sectoral approach in transforming rural areas, especially addressing the nexus between agriculture, food security and rural development.
