WPP PERMIT HOLDERS/OPERATORS ENCOURAGED TO ORGANIZE

Acknowledging that the government cannot do it alone, Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) Region 10 OIC, Regional Director Edwin B. Andot encouraged the Wood Processing Plant Permit (WPPP) holders/operators in Region 10 to organize and convene into a federation to police the industry against illegal operations.

A meeting with Provincial and Community Environment and Natural Resources Officers (PENROs) and the WPPP holders/operators in Region 10 was conducted on August 24, 2017 at the DENR 10 conference room. RD Andot, in his message, reiterated that the WPPP holders/operators are the best people to police their own industry because they are assumed to know the illegal players operating in their areas.

Operators from each province appointed interim representatives for the federation. Misamis Occidental operators appointed Ms. Alicia Camunay and Mr. Winston Catane. Mr. Mario Huervas, Mr. Juanito Nasara, Mr. Oscar Obial, Mr. Eduardo Suarez, Jr. and Mr. Raul Carlito Gentallan were named as representatives for Bukidnon province. Mr. Margarito Jaque, For. Darsky Irigian and Ms. Perlita R. Salac were appointed as representatives for the province of Lanao del Norte while Rev. Prodencio Plaza, Mr. Jay Yap, Mr. Nilo Micabalo and Mr. Ating Co were appointed to represent Misamis Oriental.

During the open forum, RD Andot answers issues and concerns of the operators. He assured them that the DENR is a partner of the private sector and all stakeholders in working for the advancement of the wood processing industry.

RD Andot also gave emphasis on the stand of the DENR against corruption, further challenging the operators to stop unnecessary handouts and to report directly to his office any employee who displays unethical conduct in their transactions.

The federation is expected to assemble for an election and to establish its structure and guidelines that will be anchored in the aspirations of advancing the interest of the WPPP holders/operators and all stakeholders of the industry. Ana Mae Sumalinog RSCIS No. 08-270-2017
