from Journal Online: Cut RP into 4 super mega regions? Angara says ‘No!’

BALER, Aurora — Sen. Edgardo Angara opposes the plan of President Macapagal-Arroyo to divide the country into four super mega regions, saying it should be carefully studied by the government.Angara told People’s Journal that the President may be ill-advised in pushing for the mega region concept since the areas that would be lumped together may not have common traditions, mores and cultures.

These are North Luzon covering Regions 1, 2 and the Cordillera Administrative Region, Nueva Ecija and Aurora; Metro Luzon (Regions 3, 4A and the National Capital Region); Central Philippines (Regions 4-B,5 to 8) and Mindanao (Regions 9 to 13 and the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao). Angara’s home province of Aurora will be integrated in North Luzon which will be primed into an agribusiness quadrangle.

  1. megaregions will definitely increase the number of beurocrats, and corrupt officials. what we need is to increase the income of provinces and towns( ( say more tax gowing to the privince instead of going to BIR). they will be more independent from congressmen and the president.

    megaregions? it is just a prelude to federalism in conjunction with parliamentary form of government.
