MANILA, Oct. 20 — To gain the support of the local government units (LGUs), non-governmental/civil society organizations (NGOs/CSOs), cause-oriented groups and the APEC Task Group (TG) Community Relations holds the roll-out of APEC IEC (Information Education and Communication) materials on Tuesday at the Multi-Purpose Hall, in Camp Crame, Quezon City.

Composed of the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG), Philippine National Police (PNP), Armed Forces of the Philippine (AFP), and Philippine Information Agency (PIA), the main concern of the APEC TG Community Relations is to raise awareness, ensure the peaceful and orderly conduct of the APEC events, and increase the appreciation of the community in APEC activities.

TG Community Relations is under the Joint Task Group (JTG) for Peace and Order which ensures the peace and order in the working and general environment in all venues through sustained inter-agency, anti-criminality campaigns, traffic management, public order, internal security operations and other related campaigns to negate threats directed to APEC Head of Economies, their delegates and local security personnel.

Furthermore, the Department of Interior and Local Government-National Capital Region (DILG-NCR) and the Philippine National Police (PNP), through its Police Community Relations Group (PCRG), in close coordination with the APEC National Organizing Committee (NOC) and other government agencies, also take the lead in communicating to the city governments, to the barangays and to the community, the significance of the APEC and its significant role in improving the economic situation in the country.

“We encourage the public to support the security preparations of the government for the peaceful convening of the remaining APEC meetings, most especially in the conduct of APEC Economic Leaders’ Meeting on November by being aware of what you can do in maintaining peace and order, and public safety.” PCRG Director Chief Supt. Nestor Quinsay said. (PNA)
