“DAGYAW” is a Hiligaynon term meaning “to be united”, a mutual sharing and help that reflects the symbiotic relationship between members of a group. The term fittingly describes the very nature and value of bringing different stakeholders together and provide an avenue for engagement between the government and the people at local levels through Town Hall Sessions.

The event promotes and disseminates information on the open governance and participatory governance initiatives of the Duterte administration.
