The CALABARZON Regional Development Council (RDC) called for new projects in the Updated Regional Development Investment Program (RDIP) 2017 to 2022.

The project call was made during the 3rd quarter meetings of the sectoral committees of the RDC on August 11 to 14. The proposed programs and projects will be approved by the RDC during its 3rd Quarter meeting.

The new projects in the Updated RDIP will be used as a reference of the RDC in reviewing the FY 2022 budget proposals of national government agencies in the region. The Updated RDIP contains the regional priority projects with high development impact.

The Covid-19 pandemic and the Taal Volcano Eruption has gravely affected CALABARZON. Government interventions through responsive projects are needed for the region to transition to the new normal and get back on track as the leading industrial region.
