I would like to thank President Rodrigo Duterte for joining us in the dinner reception to welcome more than 125 neophytes on June 18, 2019 at the Malago Lounge in Malacañang Palace. It was a good opportunity for them to meet the President up-close and personal.
I’m deeply honored to be part of this welcome dinner and to speak on behalf of presidential son and Davao City Representative Paolo Duterte, who organized the event for the newly elected lawmakers.
It was an evening of fellowship to welcome the neophytes and get everybody acquainted before we buckle down to work in the 18th Congress starting next month. We want to foster camaraderie among the incoming members of the 18th congress so we can work harmoniously and forward our legislative agenda, as well as the administration’s priority for the next three years, in order to uplift the lives of the Filipino people and sustain the country’s economic growth.
