Invitation to join the 2019 Press Freedom Caravan

The Presidential Communications Operations Office (PCOO) is mandated to serve as the premier arm of the Executive Branch in engaging and involving the citizenry and the mass media in order to enrich the quality of public discourse on all matters of governance and build a national consensus thereon. Our mission is to serve as the primary vehicle for consciousness-raising, constituency-building, and social mobilization in support of the policies, programs, and projects of the President.

In informing our stakeholders on the accomplishments of President Rodrigo Roa Duterte’s Administration, we engage not only the local media, but also foreign media to deliver the correct information. Programs under the PCOO that needs to be disseminated are the Freedom of Information (FOI) Program – operationalizing the Filipinos’ right to government information, and the creation of a Presidential Task Force on Media Security (PTFoMS) which focuses on the right to life, liberty and security of the members of the media.

In this regard, we are launching the 2019 Press Freedom Caravan which aims to provide information about FOI and the PTFoMS. We are respectfully inviting you for an interactive discussion on the said programs and get your ideas on how can we further enhance our implementation.

We would appreciate receiving your confirmation of attendance to the said activity on or before 15 February 2019 (Friday) via email addresses jvarcena@gmail.com or claire.agra@foi.gov.ph.
