‘MODERATELY PROSPEROUS PINAS’ SA 2040 – PBBM

KUMPIYANSANG inihayag ni Pangulong Ferdinand Marcos Jr. na maaaring maging “moderately prosperous country” ang Pilipinas sa taong 2040.

Sinabi ng Pangulo sa 77th Session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) na ang Pilipinas ay nananatiling “on track” na maabot ang “upper middle-income status” sa 2023.

“With steady investment in food security, public health, education, and other social services, we expect to become a moderately prosperous country by 2040. I am confident that we will achieve this vision,” ang wika ni Pangulong Marcos.

“Yet no nation stands alone. The achievement of our national ambition requires a global environment that creates conditions that allow all nations, including ours, to thrive in peace. We need the United Nations to continue to work. And we, the Philippines, are determined to be part of that solution,” dagdag na pahayag ng Pangulo.

Si Pangulong Marcos ang kauna-unahang lider mula sa Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) ang nagpahayag ng kanyang ‘statement’ sa high level general debate ng UNGA.

Pagdating sa food security, binigyang diin ni Pangulong Marcos, Agriculture chief ng Pilipinas ang pangangailangan na gumawa ng mga hakbang na magbibigay katiyakan sa isang ” modern at resilient agricultural sector.”

Dahil dito, kinokonsidera ng Punong Ehekutibo ang pagkain bilang “very basis of human security.”

“We need to take concrete steps toward a modern and resilient agriculture for food is not just a trade commodity, nor is it just a livelihood, it is an existential imperative and a moral one,” ayon sa Pangulo.

Looking forward naman ang Pangulo na makipagtulungan sa UN at partners nito para mapahusay ang agricultural productivity at food security.

“We must use public and private resources to encourage the expansion of trade, investment, and technology transfers to accelerate development. Knowledge and intellectual gains must flow freely to allow those lagging behind to catch up,” ani Pangulong Marcos. (CHRISTIAN DALE)
