The Bangsamoro government has launched a regular media forum to ensure that the residents in the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (BARMM) and its neighboring areas are updated of what has been happening in the region.
Launched Monday, August 19, the “Kapihan sa Bangsamoro” aims to promote transparency in governance in the region by giving key government officials the opportunity to have a dialogue with the media and representatives from non-government organizations, said Dr. Norodin Salam, Officer-in-Charge of the Bureau of Public Information (BPI)-BARMM, which will facilitate the forum.
The official said the media forum was established in order to “give updates on each of the accomplishments of the different ministries, for the public to know and be aware of the developments in the Bangsamoro region.”
“Few months ago, there were some rumors circulating in social media alleging that nothing has changed in the BARMM, but the public did not know that there are so many changes and achievements in the BARMM especially in the different ministries,” Salam said.
The Kapihan sa Bangsamoro was formed under the directive of the BARMM spokesman and Minister of Local Government Atty. Naguib Sinarimbo.
