Negros Oriental was among the top 10 local government units in the country chosen for management performance, Department of Interior and Local Government Secretary Jesse Robredo said.

Robredo made the announcement during the visit of President Benigno Aquino III to Bais City, in Dumaguete and in Negros Oriental, recently.

Robredo said the DILG salutes the leadership of the province headed by Gov. Roel Degamo that placed Negros Oriental in the top 4 having one of the highest ratings in management performance, with the cities of Bayawan and Dumaguete.

Degamo said the achievement has encouraged him to work even harder and better and reiterated his call for unity and cooperation for the good of the province.*JG
