BCDA enhances info exchange with AFP, DND

The leadership of the Bases Conversion and Development Authority (BCDA), Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) and the Department of National Defense (DND) sought to strengthen their public information capabilities by enhancing information exchange and linkages among them.

In a message read during the 26th AFP Forum hosted by the BCDA, former Defense Secretary and current BCDA Chairman Delfin Lorenzana stressed the significance of government communicators, especially in the defense and security sectors, as “bearers of truthful and accurate information.”

“We highlight the crucial role of public information officers in communicating to our stakeholders our commitment to help build a community that is peaceful, secure and livable through the support of a strong and reliable armed forces,” the BCDA chair said.

Over 90 public affairs and information officers from the DND and AFP, led by DND spokesperson Arsenio Andolong, participated during the forum with the purpose of hearing updates on BCDA’s current efforts to contribute to the AFP modernization and on its replication projects for the military.

“The BCDA is all about helping strengthen the Armed Forces while building great communities, like Bonifacio Global City,” said BCDA president and CEO Aileen Zosa.

She added that by building recurring revenues through these developments, BCDA will be more conscious in generating revenues for the modernization of the AFP and expediting the completion of much-needed military facilities.
