These meetings will serve as vital references for LGUs and government agencies in public decision-making and in improving government policies for better public sector performance and service delivery.
The annually-held Dagyaw Open Government Town Hall Meetings are spearheaded by the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) and strives to primarily improve trust and confidence between the People and the Government through an open, neutral and protected space for multiple sectors across society.
