Atty. Lanang Ali Jr., majority floor leader of the Bangsamoro Transition Authority (BTA), said members of the parliament will fast track the enhancement of the transition plan within this month.
The transition plan “aims to identify the new structural framework of the BARMM, based on the provisions of Republic Act No.
11054, also known as the Bangsamoro Organic Law (BOL), taking into consideration the existing structure, budget, and other relevant features of the ARMM.”
It also includes how the Bangsamoro government will transition from ARMM to BARMM.
Meanwhile, officials of the Bangsamoro government and the World Bank discussed possible areas of cooperation in the different development needs of the region.
The World Bank has worked with the region in the previous years and it looks forward to providing assistance to the newly-established Bangsamoro government.
Mara Warwick, country director of World Bank said they have looked into “establishing stronger presence in the Bangsamoro autonomous region.”
Some of the support provided by World Bank in BARMM include the Mindanao Rural Development Project, ARMM Social Fund Project, national roads, learning, equity, and accountability for education, strategic local development and investment projects.
