The administration is bringing government services closer to the people, President Ferdinand R. Marcos Jr. declared on Saturday as he led the simultaneous launching of the Bagong Pilipinas Serbisyo Fair (BPSF), the country’s biggest service caravan.

The Serbisyo Caravan is aimed at providing major government services to underprivileged Filipinos in various communities across the country.

“Kaya’t ‘yan po ang inyong pamahalaan. Ang gobyerno po ang lumalapit na ngayon sa inyo. Hindi kayo namin inaantay pang pumunta sa gusali, sa opisina ng mga government offices. Kami na po ang lalapit,” President Marcos said during a rice distribution event in Iriga City, Camarines Sur.


“Iyan po ang Bagong Pilipinas na programa. Pagka gumagawa kami ng fair na ganyan, kasama lahat. Iyon na lang, isa lang ang pupuntahan niyo.”

The President led the simultaneously launching in Nabua, Camarines Sur as other similar launches were being done in Laoag, Ilocos Norte; Tolosa, Leyte; and Monkayo, Davao de Oro.

According to Camarines Sur Rep. Miguel Luis Villafuerte, 200,000 residents of the province are expected to benefit from the BPSF, which feature the flagship government program Kadiwa ng Pangulo, Passport on Wheels, Driver’s License registration/assistance, National I.D., Pag-IBIG Fund, National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) and police clearance applications.

Aside from the Serbisyo Fair, the President extended assistance to Camarines Sur farmers.


In Iriga City, the President distributed rice to the beneficiaries of the DSWD’s Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps).

“At ngayon po, ito naman ay ang bigas para naman makatulong at makatiyak na hindi po naghihirap masyado ang ating mga kababayan na kahit papaano may nakakain, kahit papaano napapakain ang inyong mga pamilya,” Marcos told Iriga City residents receiving the assistance.

“At kung hindi talaga kaya, nandito po ang pamahalaan na tutulong sa inyo,” he said.

Accompanying the President were Labor Secretary Bienvenido Laguesma, Trade Secretary Alfredo Pascual, Interior and Local Government Secretary Benjamin Abalos, Transportation Secretary Jaime Bautista, Communications Secretary Cheloy Velicaria-Garafil and Commission on Higher Education Chairman Prospero De Vera.
