DAVAO CITY – The incoming administration of presumptive President-elect Rodrigo Duterte will be fast and cost-efficient with a plan to scale down expenditures particularly on seminar and ‘Lakbay Aral’ (educational trips).

This means, seminars will not be held away from work places rather than traveling to other places like Manila.

“Why not bring the speaker instead,” he said.

He said seminars in government especially Lakbay Aral usually become junket trips and cost a lot of money.

“No more seminars going to Manila rather have the seminars in local venues and let the resource person come,” he said.

He added that these activities will be stopped because some would only use this as an excuse for touring around places.

“Stop this business,” he said, adding that Lakbay Aral is abuse of people’s money.

Duterte said, “These are part of my thoughts when I was on a one week break after the May 9, 2016 National and Local Elections.”
