“With only three remaining months of the year to cover the balance under the APCP program, we also discussed strategies we need to take. And for a smooth implementation, we also reiterated to the local management committee each members’ duties and responsibilities,” said Aguhob. (Ma. Socorro C. Reambonanza)
