City Price Coordinating Council conducts Year-End Convening Session

CPCC Tayabas City conducted the Year-End Convening Session on December 21, 2021, at the Balilo Event Center. The council started its first convening session last 20 August 2021, in response to Tayabasin consumers’ concerns when it comes to ensuring that the prices of basic and prime commodities are stable.

With the support of LGU – Tayabas City, CPCC programs were launched, such as tapping the City Information and Community Relations Office (CICRO) as the centralized hotline for consumer concerns, and the launching of Bantay-I, an e-portal where price issuances and consumer advisories are posted for public viewing, among others, paving the way to effective initiatives suitable for Tayabas City.
