In a post at the Facebook page of MOST, it said that the objective of the consultation is to know their needs and challenges enocuntered, inform and deliver to them the projects and programs of MOST and draw out their suggestions as to what they want to happen, and which of the MOST programs they are willing to join, according to Minister Engr. Aida Silongan.

The stakeholders’ consultation will not only give the ministry a vantage point to understand the trends and issues of the community but will also help MOST in identifying appropriate intervention and assistance to the stakeholders.

Further, the consultation enables MOST to track the needs and expectations of the people from the five provinces Bangsamoro and communities of North Cotabato that joined the autonomous region.
