Now in her third and last term as governor, Dimaporo continues her marks on the following development thrusts: economic expansion in agri-fisheries and eco-cultural tourism, equitable access to education, health and social services, sustainable peace, public order and safety, preservation of an environmentally critical ecosystem and efficient people-centered governance.
