PIA director general cites PIA Region VI for IO network

Negros Occ. (9 December) -- Philippine Information Agency Director General Lawyer Jose Fabia recently cited the leadership of PIA Regional Director Janet Mesa for putting in place a well organized network of Information Officers in the six provinces of the region.

"I am happily surprised that in Region VI, whatever we were thinking ? it is already happening under the leadership of Atty. Janet Mesa," Fabia said during a recent gathering of Public Information Officers, IOs, in Iloilo City.

For several years now, the PIA Regional office is mobilizing not less than 150 IOs in the region who coordinate with the PIA in the dissemination of information particularly in the field of development communication.

Fabia thanked the IOs for the role they have chosen to assume, stressing that their job is crucial because the information they give greatly benefits the lives of many people.

"If we provide the proper information to the people, this information can save and improve their lives."

To prove his point, Fabia recalled the events during Typhoon Juan where government agencies were able to track down the actual path of the typhoon and were timely informed of the damages made including areas severely flooded through the SMS IOs sent to PIA.

Through this information made available in real time, he said, the agencies were able to respond properly to the needs of the people like relief goods, food and medicine supplies.

He urged the IOs to help the government in information dissemination so that the people will know about its programs.

He also urged them to work from the heart, out of their love for country. "In all of these, I think, it is important that we keep in mind that what we are doing is for our countrymen," he said.

He said a good part of information and communication should be devoted to love of country, love of the place where one comes from. "Instilling Filipino values is the greatest challenge for our IOs and communicators." (PIA-LOL)
