Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” R. Marcos, Jr. welcomed the new dentists, some of whom were Ilocano, as he recognized the major role of dental practitioners in the delivery of basic health services to the Filipino people.

“On behalf of the Congress of the Philippines, let me take this opportunity to welcome our new young dentists…. And what elates me more is that a fraction of these new dentists hail from our beloved province of Ilocos Norte!” he said.

Sen. Bongbong made the remarks in a speech he delivered during the 68th Induction Ceremony and Scientific Seminar of the Philippine Dental Association (PDA)-Ilocos Norte Dental Chapter held on Monday, July 14, 2014, at the Plaza del Norte Convention Center, Paoay, Ilocos Norte.

Esquire (July) – The State of the Nation

EsquireStateoftheNationBBM

When I was asked to give my thoughts on the state of affairs in the country today, I knew it would be a formidable task. Every new administration is elected by the people in the hope of a better future. We would do well to examine how far we have come to achieving the dreams that we had aspired to four years ago. Some believe we have come far. Others would disagree. What is inevitable though, is that our political cycle will bring a new leadership two years from now.

The Daily Tribune – Dialog not EDCA to resolve maritime dispute — Marcos

By Angie M. Rosales | The Daily Tribune

TribuneA serious dialog between China and the Philippines and not the Enhanced Defense Cooperation Agreement (EDCA) the administration signed with the United States government would be a compelling factor for China to amicably settle the territorial disputes with the Philippines, a senator said yesterday.
“I don’t see how the EDCA can be a factor in the conflicting claims between China and the Philippines. That’s strictly between China and the Philippines.

The only parties who can solve that problem or resolve that situation are China and the Philippines. Everyone else is welcome to make suggestions, give their views, give their insights, but at the end of the day it will be an agreement between China and the Philippines that will resolve this issue,” Sen. Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr said.
