BAGUIO CITY-- Baguio City Mayor Mauricio Domogan vowed to prioritize  development of Cordillera with the quest for regional autonomy as he seats as  new  chairman of the Cordillera Regional Development Council.
President Rodrigo Duterte has appointed recently Domogan as new RDC chair.
                “The development of the region will be prioritized, all the needs and concerns of each of the provinces in the region will be studied and will be prioritized,” Domogan said.
                He added he will be working with local government units and line agencies to ensure that concerns of the region in terms of development and progress will be attained.
                Domogan  said development of the region is  a major reason for quest for regional autonomy.
                He added support to Cordillera autonomy is also in line with the aspiration for federalism by the President.
                He added pronouncements by President Duterte of his support to regional autonomy were relayed by presidential peace adviser  Sec.  Jesus Dureza in  Tabuk City, Kalinga.
                Meanwhile, National Economic and Development Authority-CAR Regional Director Milagros Rimando said appointment of Domogan as new RDC chairman would be good for the Cordillera.
                “Aside from the friendship of President Duterte and Mayor Domogan, the strong political ties of both leaders would be advantageous for the development and attainment of autonomy of the Cordillera region,” Rimando said.

                She added that Domogan’s leadership as RDC chairman would be complementary as he also leads the Regional Peace and Order Council.
