PBBM on sound, improving PH condition: ‘Dumating na ang Bagong Pilipinas’

President Ferdinand R. Marcos Jr. expressed confidence Monday that the state of the nation is sound and improving, and that a new Philippines has come.

In his second State of the Nation Address (SONA), the President said his confidence has been further buoyed by the world-class Filipino workforce’s demonstration of love for their homeland.

“Every Filipino has unanimously risen to the challenge that we have made to them to be part of the nation’s future. Handa silang maghandog ng tulong, dahil mahal nila ang kanilang kapwa-Pilipino, at mahal nila ang Pilipinas,” Marcos said of the nation’s workers.

“With this in my heart, I know that the state of the nation is sound, and is improving. Dumating na po ang Bagong Pilipinas.”

In the past year, Marcos said knowing the presence of an enormous pool of highly competent and dedicated workers serving the government has been a source of great hope and optimism for him, adding it is up to the bureaucracy to provide them with good leadership and guidance.

“They love the Philippines, and have responded to our call,” Marcos said.

The President’s second SONA delved on the administration’s accomplishments in various areas such as the economy, infrastructure development, agriculture, peace and order, tourism, energy, Mindanao peace efforts and many others.

The chief executive also enumerated the plans that his government wants to carry out in the future to sustain the nation’s development. *PND*
