Sept. 11, 2017: Finance taps DAP experts to review appeal of 26 closed mines
 

The Development Academy of the Philippines will assist the government in the review process for the 26 mines ordered closed or suspended by former Environment secretary Regina Lopez early this year, the Finance Department said over the weekend.

The DoF said the Mining Industry Coordinating Council tapped the expertise of the academy to help in the implementation and management of the review process for the said mines.

Aside from handling the review, DAP will also be tasked to facilitate the procurement of duly-screened consultant/experts who will comprise the members of the five technical review teams of the MICC that will assess various aspects of the mining operations under scrutiny.
