The local government unit of Mati lauds the recognition as a manifestation of its consistent genuine governance to the people of Mati in Davao Oriental. Last year, the City of Mati also took home the same award from DILG.
In the recent result released by the DILG, only City of Mati and Davao City got the prestigious SEAL in Region XI.
SGLG 2017 covers 81 provinces, 145 cities and 1,489 municipalities.
For 2017, the LGU needs to pass four core areas, namely, Financial Administration, Social Protection and Peace and Order, and at least one essential area: either Business-friendliness and Competitiveness, Environmental Protection or Tourism, Culture and the Arts.
The Seal of Good Local Governance symbolizes integrity and good performance through continuing governance reform and sustained local development. It is a progressive assessment system adopted by the DILG to give distinction to remarkable local government performance across several areas.
The City of Mati dedicates this award to all its local departments, agencies, members of the council and its people ( The Matinians) for helping each other’s hand in reaching the LGU of Mati’s goal — Progress and security in the city.
Indeed, we all love Mati.
