Marcos commends Palace media for “working hard” in order to provide news

Cebuano Cebuano English English Filipino Filipino


President Ferdinand R. Marcos Jr. expressed gratitude to the media for covering him and to Malacaang for its commitment to informing the public.

This comes after he hosted a dinner at Malacaan Palace on Saturday night for the members of the Malacaang Press Corps (MPC), Malacaang Cameramen Association (MCA), and Presidential Photojournalists Association (PPA).

“…For all of you who have been so supportive, this is [meal] our version. In his speech, Marcos stated, “I know you have been working very, very hard to get the news out so that people know what’s going on and what we are doing here.

He urged the journalists to set aside enough time to spend the holidays with friends and family.

“During the holidays, especially for Filipinos, it’s always necessary to pull back a little bit, recharge, and think again about what we are doing,” he continued. “Christmas is to me that time of year.”

Additionally, he made a joke about them having “heard everything I have got to say.”

Marcos has often promised in speeches that his administration will uphold the freedom, dignity, and safety of all journalists and media professionals working in the nation.

Additionally, he recognized the press’s critical contribution to “enhancing access to information and raising awareness on issues that affect our country and the world.”

Marcos also had a meet-and-greet with his fans earlier in the day at Malacanang Palace.

“Meeting some of my followers today is an early present this Christmas,” he added. “Maagang regalo ang hatid sa atin ngayong Pasko nang ating makasama muli ang ilan sa ating mga taga-suporta ngayong araw.”

The Filipino people will heed Marcos’ appeal for unity, he hoped, with the assistance of those who supported his presidential campaign. Marcos thanked them for their continuous trust and confidence in him.

The President stated in his most recent video blog that his administration would continue to lead programs aimed at bettering Filipinos’ quality of life throughout the Christmas season.

In his final vlog, which was posted on Dec. 4, Marcos said, “Even though the Christmas season has come and the rest of us are on vacation mode, we still continue to do everything we can to ensure the continuous improvement of the condition of our countrymen.

Marcos is scheduled to fly out on Sunday evening for a working visit to Belgium’s Brussels to attend the ASEAN-EU Commemorative Summit from December 12 to 14.

The priorities and concerns of the nation, including post-pandemic recovery, addressing supply chain disruption, marine security, digital transformation, and climate action, are anticipated to be carried by Marcos.

Alongside this, he will meet privately with the leaders of the EU, the Czech Republic, Belgium, Estonia, Spain, Denmark, Germany, Poland, Finland, the Netherlands, and Estonia.

According to Foreign Affairs Assistant Secretary Daniel Espiritu, Marcos will host a roundtable discussion and “one-on-one talks” with European businesses, particularly those looking to increase their presence in the Philippines.

The businesses include Unilever, which plans to invest PHP4.7 billion and develop a brand-new, cutting-edge manufacturing facility, and OCEA Shipbuilding, which wants to invest PHP1.5 billion in the construction of a shipyard in the Philippines.

Additionally, he will meet with executives from the logistics hub management company Simaris and the infrastructure and renewable energy company ACCIONA.
