Development planners in Bangsamoro composed of key officials from the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) and the Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF) reconvened recently on January 29-31, 2019 at Cagayan de Oro City to continue working together for the crafting and completion of the Unified Bangsamoro Development Plan (UBDP).
Accordingly, the UBDP is part of the preparation for the Bangsamoro Transition that will help guide for development planning and initiatives for the upcoming Bangsamoro Government.
In a joint statement, the BDP Team composed of members from MILF and MNLF expressed that the deemed ratification of the Bangsamoro Organic Law (BOL) by the Commission on Elections (COMELEC), motivated them more to continue working to contribute to the development of Bangsamoro communities through the UBDP, a recommendatory plan for the BTA.
Officials and representatives from the agencies of the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM) also joined the said activity.
The BDPT likewise thanked the Australian Government, the Centre for Humanitarian Dialogue and the Office of the Presidential Adviser on the Peace Process (OPAPP) for the continuing support to this endeavor for Bangsamoro.
