It was good to know that the youth sector is actively participating in discussions to come up with effective measures that will uplift the living standards of all Filipinos.
This is what I observed during the Social Watch Youth Forum at the Polytechnic University of the Philiopines where we tackled the proposed Tobacco Taxation and one of my proposed bills, the Universal Health Care program. This measure, which was certified urgent by President Duterte, will assure the delivery of quality and accessible health services for all Filipinos.
I signed the declararion of unity regarding tobacco tax increase which will fund the UHC.
We exchanged ideas in a question and answer as I shared my advocacies that include the Universal Health Care program, creation of a department of housing and an efficient railway system.
Maraming salamat PUP students sa pag-anyaya… Kabataang Pilipino, ikaw ay maaasahan!
