MGB conducted the IEC activity last November 28 at the Sangguniang Bayan Session Hall of Maco during the SB session.

Engr. Ronald Villanueva of the tenement section presented the Status of the Mining Industry in Davao region. During the discussion, the SB members inquired on MGB’s stand on the increase of excise tax as stated in the newly passed Train Law.

Engr. Villanueva explained that since the Train law has already taken effect, MGB encouraged the mining companies to comply and follow the recently signed Train Law.

Villanueva also answered other questions of the members of the Sangguniang Panlalawigan of Maco regarding status of the mining industry in the region and inquired as to the status of the permittees located inside the municipality.
