The Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) will join the Caravan of Services of the Cebu Provincial Government.
PRC 7 Director Randie Taquiqui personally visited Gov. Gwen Garcia on Tuesday, April 11, at her office to express the agency’s intent to join the quarterly Caravan of Services.
Gov. Gwen gladly accepted PRC’s participation, saying that the agency’s presence at the Caravan of Services is a “very welcome” development.
Taquiqui said they see the Capitol’s Caravan of Services as an appropriate venue where they can bring their services closer to the people and outside their main office in Cebu City.
The official said they hope to be able to reach out to more professionals in the province who need the agency’s services through the Caravan of Services.
“This will help us a lot. We believe that bringing our services outside will help our professionals in the province,” Taquiqui said.
“It’s going to be a symbiotic relationship because you will also be helping a lot of our professionals in the province,” Gov. Gwen said.
The next Caravan of Services is scheduled in May this year. Each quarter, Capitol, along with other participating agencies, conducts a series of 10 Caravans of Services for all 7 districts in the province, including the islands of Bantayan and Camotes, as well as the Island-Municipality of Pilar.
PRC’s mandate is to regulate and supervise the practice of Filipino professionals. Its services, among others, include registration and renewal of PRC licenses of Filipino professionals and authentication of documents and other certifications.
PRC is the latest government agency that is joining the Capitol’s Caravan of Services. Since the program started in December 2019, it has attracted various government agencies that have brought their respective services to the grassroots levels.
Among these agencies are DILG, DA, PhilHealth, BFAR, Registry of Deeds, DSWD, as well as the IBP Cebu Chapter. | Carlo Lorenciana
