CGPA attributes victories against local terrorist groups to Army’s modernization strategy

Lt. Gen. Andres Centino, the Commanding General of the Philippine Army (CGPA), commended the Army’s transformation roadmap (ATR) for substantial successes against local terrorist groups in the country.

In an online interview with SMNI News on Monday, November 1, 2021, Lt. Gen. Centino said, “The Army’s transformation roadmap has enabled us to become more efficient in carrying out our tasks.”

“Iyong pag-implement natin ng operations ay napadali na rin dahil disiplinado ang mga sundalo. If ever mayroon mang misbehaviors na nangyayari, we were able to act on these right away dahil may systems tayo,” the CGPA added.

“Overall, dahil naisaayos ang procedures natin, organized na ‘yung pagplano at pagbudget ng ating mga gawain, napadali ang implementasyon ng ating mga plano at programa.” Lt. Gen. Centino said.

“We have instituted measures and scorecards to assess the efficiency of our performance,” the CGPA remarked. “Because of this transformation roadmap, we have performed very well.”

When Lt. Gen. Centino takes over the Army in May 2021, he has four major goals: implement an intel-driven operation focused on the primary tasks of defeating the armed group; make the best use of resources; advance professionalism and meritocracy within the organization; and protect the ownership of military camps and reservations for base development.
