LEGAZPI CITY (PIA) —The Philippine Information Agency in Bicol (PIA-5) has reactivated the Bicol Communicators Network (Bicol ComNet), a partnership of individuals in the region who serve as information officers or designated spokespersons for their agencies or jurisdictions.
At least 20 communicators initially composed the Bicol ComNet, which will provide Bicol residents with vital information about government programs, projects and services on a sustained basis.
PIA-5’s Benilda Recebido said the network will help promote the government’s vision of a unified and progressive Bicol region.
Bicol ComNet will help raise and build public awareness and participation in government programs for Bicol to attain its fullest development consistent with the national goals, Recebido said.
“The network is a means to share information and foster cooperation among the members,” she added.
To go about it, Recebido said the network will develop a “common and unified communication plan” and standard communication protocols that will be used to communicate to the communities.
The network will also work to enhance the capability of its members to perform their jobs as information officers and spokespersons, she added.
The initial members of the reactivated network were from the Civil Service Commission, Department of Trade and Industry, Department of Health, Department of Labor and Employment, Department of Social Welfare and Development, Department of Tourism, Department of Public Works and Highways, Commission on Population and Development, National Economic and Development Authority;
Philippine Coastguard, Bureau of Fire Protection, Philippine Navy, National Police Commission, Police Regional Office 5, Housing and Land Use Regulatory Board, Commission on Human Rights, Philippine Statistics Authority, Social Security System and 9th CMO Battalion of Philippine Army.
More communication specialists from other agencies will be added later on. (PIA-5)
