Vice President Sara Duterte Opens Satellite Offices


How do you feel about this story?


The Office of Vice President Sara Duterte has opened satellite offices all over the country to help people outside Metro Manila, particularly those living in remote areas, get easier access to social services.

Vice Presidential Spokesperson and lawyer Reynold Munsayac said the OVP satellite offices were opened in the cities of Dagupan, Cebu, Tacloban, Zamboanga, Davao, and Tandag in Surigao del Sur.

The satellite offices were launched on July 1, the first day of Vice President Duterte’s term. These offices are open to the public during office hours from Monday to Friday.

Munsayac said the opening of the satellite offices was part of the vice president’s “earnest efforts” to make sure the OVP is closer to the people.

“These satellite offices were opened to assist individuals to access help, and for swifter response in times of disasters,” Munsayac said in a news release on Monday.

With the establishment of satellite offices, people wanting to personally see the Vice President would no longer need to travel to Metro Manila. The managers assigned to these satellite offices could provide the assistance needed by the public.

The satellite offices were not set up per region but were handpicked strategically for their location. A major consideration is their proximity and accessibility to other areas or islands. Additional offices shall be added once the initial six areas are in full operations.

Appointed managers per OVP satellite offices are Michael Angelo Sotto Saavedra for Zamboanga, Ma. Constancia Corominas – Lim for Cebu, Regina Generose Tecson for Davao, Alan Tanjuakio for Tacloban, Rolmar F. Basalan for Surigao, and Marc Brian C. Lim for Dagupan. (PNA)
