PIA-13 to launch first Kapihan in partnership with SM City Butuan

BUTUAN CITY, Apr. 30 (PIA) -- As demand for transparency and wider access to information increases especially in the advent of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, more and more platforms were created by the government to champion these concerns, with its communication arms spearheading campaigns. And amid the COVID-19 pandemic, the Philippine Information Agency (PIA) Caraga will be launching its first Kapihan in partnership with SM City Butuan.

At its core, the Kapihan serves as a platform in bridging the information gaps, allows productive discussions and healthy exchange of views from a wide array of relevant topics and socio-economic issues, solicit feedbacks, and brings the latest updates, news, and significant information that are helpful in the decision-making process.

Speakers from the Department of Health (DOH) and the Office of Civil Defense (OCD) will be gracing the “Kapihan sa SM City Butuan” on Friday, April 30, at the SM Supermalls in this city to discuss the latest COVID-19 health situation report in the region; the implementation of the vaccination program; and other measures implemented by concerned sectors under the Regional Task Force on COVID-19 (RTF COVID-19) to address pressing issues arising from the health crisis.

The Presidential Communications Operations Office (PCOO) expressed support on the endeavor as it leaves no one behind when it comes to informing and engaging the public.

”This allows all stakeholders to come to the table and have an equal opportunity to partake on important issues especially in this time of a great health crisis which has brought unprecedented challenges,” remarked the office.

Catch the Kapihan sa SM City Butuan via Facebook Livestream which will air on Friday at 3pm in PIA Caraga’s official Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/PIACaraga. (DMNR/PIA-Caraga)
