Governor Dr. Melchor Daguines Diclas dispatched a team from the Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office to clear an over 3-kilometer road in Ansagan, Tuba, Benguet which has not been open to vehicular traffic for years due to its poor condition. The road traverses the sitios of Pimingan, Lelit, Baracbac, and Codcodag, and is being used as shortcut route by residents in sitios Saguitlang and Lubas.
Driven by its mission: Ensure Improvement of Quality of Life in Benguet, the Province of Benguet obtained a human development index of 0.883 in 2009. The province of Benguet promises its constituents high age expectancy, accessible high caliber education and more than sufficient way of living. This, however, can't be achieved without the help of its people.
The cultural beliefs and innate characteristics of the people made it possible for them to strive and develop higher quality of life without destroying the cradle that they live in.
