THE Presidential Communications Operations Office (PCOO) will host a forum on various government programs and initiatives as part of the 2019 PCOO Roadshows at the Iloilo Science and Technology University (ISAT-U) in Iloilo City, June 24.
Representatives from the PCOO and the Presidential Task Force on Media Security (PTFoMS) will give their presentations on the Freedom of Information (FOI) program, Rehabinasyon, and Safeguarding Press Freedom in the Philippines.
The topics will be delivered by PCOO assistant secretaries lawyer Kristian Ablan and Ramon Cualoping III, and PTFoMS secretariat chief-of-staff lawyer Abraham Agamata.
The event aims to inform and engage more than 200 representatives from national government agencies, local government agencies, civil society organizations, non-government organizations, the academe, and the media.
Prior to the talks, the PCOO will hold the FOI Campus Caravan in the morning to educate members of the academe on their right to information and promote the use of the FOI program as a tool for academic research.
The 2019 PCOO Roadshows leg here is being done in coordination with the Philippine Information Agency – 6 and ISAT-U.
It is part of PCOO’s information, education, and communications (IEC) campaign.
The roadshows this year are held in various locations in the country to ensure the extensive reach of the campaign. (CBA/PIA6)
