The year 2012 was a year like no other for the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG), grappling with the loss of Secretary Jesse M. Robredo in August and overcoming the grief associated with his demise, and welcoming in its fold at the same time a new Secretary–in the person of Mar Roxas-who has vowed to continue with the good governance initiatives among
local government units (LGUs) that the Department has been pursuing since 2010, in accordance with and in support for the fulfillment of the President’s Social Contract with the Filipino people. The year also saw the Interior Sector stepping up its peace and order and public safety endeavors,mindful that both are critical ingredients to sustaining the country’s newfound economic growth and renewed business and investment confidence, and are vital in ensuring that ordinary Filipinos feel safe and secure in their own homes and communities.
