These government agencies walk side by side with their personnel and other volunteers coming from private sectors showed their support to save Manila Bay by walking from Quirino Grandstand during the launching of Manila bay Rehabilitation.
After that on the preconference DENR Secretary Roy A. Cimatu together with the other government agencies tackle the importance of the event. Cimatu promises that the government will continue to scrutinize the violations, examinations and inspections of the facilities as well as other establishments to see if they have the proper sewerage system. These government agencies are determined to face head on the challenges anchored to the rehabilitation of Manila Bay that is why DENR proposes to have a meeting with MMDA to organize the whole plan on Thursday (January 31, 2019).
Aside from that the event also emphasizes the crucial role of discipline in maintaining clean environment. It reminds all of those who participate to keep a little bit of their trash like candy wrappers inside their pockets if there are no available garbage cans in the area.
