DND begins transition as incoming chief joins ministers meet
The Department of National Defense (DND) has started its transition with the incoming administration.
On Monday, incoming defense chief Delfin Lorenzana joined the trilateral meeting of Secretary Voltaire Gazmin, Indonesian Defense Minister Ryamizard Ryaducu and Malaysia’s Dato Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein at Camp Aguinaldo.
“This is part of the transition activities so that the incoming [Secretary of National Defense] can already hit the road running as they say,” defense spokesperson Peter Paul Galvez said on Tuesday.
Lorenzana joined the meeting “to observe and also initially meet future counterpart ministers.”
The transition activities at the defense department started early June.
Galvez said they have so far tackled the organization and management framework with Lorenzana.
