The tone for PH development objectives is established by SONA: USM dean

In his inaugural State of the Nation Address (SONA), President Ferdinand Marcos Jr. laid the groundwork for his administration’s development plan, according to a college dean and political analyst at Soccsksargen’s state-run institution in North Cotabato.

According to Professor Marcos Monderin, dean of the College of Arts and Sciences at the University of Southern Mindanao (USM) in Kabacan, North Cotabato, “He has set the tone for the country’s sustainable development ambitions.”

In a radio interview on Tuesday, Monderin said, “He clearly emphasized (in his SONA) themes that the more than 31 million Filipinos who voted for him want to hear—health and agriculture.

The majority of the Ilocanos who migrate to Kabacan live in this rural community in the northern Philippines.

Monderin claimed that when Marcos discussed building more hospitals outside of Metro Manila and in the provinces, the audience and lawmakers in the House plenary gave him a standing ovation.

We require more medical facilities at this time of the pandemic, he remarked.

The President received a standing ovation and thunderous applause as he emphasized the need for hospitals that specialize in treating lung, heart, and renal ailments to be built around the nation.

The President’s mention of his agricultural policies garnered the loudest applause, according to Monderin, who also said that it demonstrated his concern for the nation’s economic foundation—agriculture, farmers, and fisherfolk.

In addition, Marcos is the secretary of the Department of Agriculture.

Monderin claimed that Marcos listed “several doable items,” some of which could be implemented immediately and others that were for long-term initiatives.

In addition, Marcos made it a point to warn the populace that when inflation intensifies and disasters come, “then we should be ready,” he said. “Land distribution is achievable, sustainability of food and food security are doable, additional health care facilities are doable,” he added.

He implied that Filipinos should support his administration, saying that “generally, the SONA offers Filipinos what to expect from Marcos administration in the following six years.”
