MMDA Officials present Seal of Excellence in Public Service award of KWF / MMDA PIO

MMDA gets award for promoting national language

The Komisyon sa Wikang Filipino (KWF) has bestowed the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) with the Seal of Excellence in Public Service for using the Filipino language in communicating its services, programs, and projects to the public. 

It is the first time for the MMDA to receive the recognition award from the KWF, the regulating body of the Filipino language and the official government institution tasked with developing, preserving and promoting the various Philippine languages.

Chairman Danilo Lim said the Seal of Excellence in Public Service-Level 2 serves as the agency’s inspiration to continue implementing Executive Order 335 which enjoins all government departments and offices to use the Filipino language in official transaction, communication and correspondence.  

“Isang karangalan para sa amin na makilala ang aming mga inisyatibo sa paggamit ng wikang Filipino sa araw-araw na paninilbihan sa ating mga kababayan. Higit sa pagsasalin sa Filipino ng mga mahahalagang dokumento, mga karatula at iba pang mga pabatid, responsibilidad natin bilang mga Pilipino ang pagtataguyod at pagsusuporta sa paggamit ng ating sariling wika,” said Lim, who shared the award to agency employees during the flag raising ceremonies on Monday.

The KWF cited the MMDA for use of Filipino language on MMDA Facebook page, infomercials, and road traffic signs in communicating with the general public.

The MMDA also translated from English to Filipino its office labels, process flow charts, posters, brochures, mission and vision, Citizen’s Charter and other internal and external communication.

“Makakaasa kayong kami ay patuloy ninyong magiging katuwang sa misyong paigtingin pa ang paggamit at pagpapalaganap ng wikang Filipino, lalong lalo na sa tuntunin ng serbisyo publiko. Tayo ay magkaisa at mag-ugnayan para mas mapaunlad at mapreserba ang ating wika. Mabuhay ang Wikang Filipino!,” he added.  

The KWF’s awarding ceremony was held in August in line with the celebration of the “Buwan ng Wika.”
