ABOUT THE RDC

The Regional Development Council (RDC) of Central Visayas, is the highest policy-making body in the region and serves as the counterpart of the NEDA Board at the subnational level. It is the primary institution that coordinates and sets the direction of all economic and social development efforts in the region. It also serves as the forum where local efforts can be related and integrated with national development activities.

BACKGROUND

The RDC was organized in 1974 through LOI No. 22 issued on December 31, 1972
pursuant to the implementation of the Integrated Reorganization Plan of 1972; and
founded on Article X, Section 14 of the 1987 Philippine Constitution,
which provides that:
“The President shall provide for regional development councils, or other similar
bodies composed of local government officials, regional heads of departments
and other offices, and representatives from non-government organizations within
the region for purposes of administrative decentralization to strengthen the
autonomy of units therein and to accelerate the economic and social development
of the units in the region.”
