CORTEZ: Cong Henry, Boss Henry…paalam

May 16, 2015 at 8:36 pm Leave a comment

Mabunga naman ang naging political career ni Cong Enrique ‘Henry’ Cojuangco bilang congressman ng first district ng Tarlac.

Dahil sa pagiging magkapatid, naging alter ego si Cong Henry ng founder ng Nationalist People’s Coalition (NPC) na si Eduardo ‘Danding’Cojuangco.

Isa si Cong Henry sa mga nag-aaral at nagdedesisyon pagdating sa usapin ng mga issues of national interest na kailangan ang decision ng NPC.

Share ko po sa inyo ang 2015 message ni Cong Henry para sa mga members ng Nationalis Peoples Coalition para makita natin ang perspective niya para sa negosyo sa Pilipinas na related sa ASEAN integration.

My warmest greetings to all of you! In a few months we will all be feeling the effects of our country’s role in the international community especially in the ASEAN region. In 2015, the year where we have committed together with other ASEAN countries towards an ASEAN economic community, we will feel the effects not only in terms of goods and their influx but also on services and profession as well as businesses.

This means that we have to be ready for the impact of this integration. As a party, which has long become a partner of our government despite changes in administration, ought to be ready. We should be stronger and united in our stand and efforts as we continue to fulfil our vital role in government as well as the economy.

I take pride to be called a member of this party which has made a special mark in governance and the country’s history. We as one, was able to push and make policy strides and helped improve our countrymen’s quality of life.

In the home front, I also take this opportunity to remind everyone of our role in continuing efforts to help achieve inclusive economic growth for the nation.

Through the years, we have already laid down the foundation and tradition of excellence and service for this nation. Let us therefore think and strive for higher goals to obtain reforms where needed. Let us be true to our party’s goals and commitments to this country and to God.

May God bless us all in our plans, programs and actions!

Bilang member ng ruling coalition sa House of Representatives, siya ay chairman ng ilang committees tulad ng Economic Affairs Committee; chairman din ng Banks and Financial Intermediaries Committee; pati saPublic Works and Highways; chairman din sa Committee on Trade and Industry; at chairman din sa Ways and Means Committee.

Negosyo ang bumubuhay sa Pilipinas. Ang isang masugid na itinutulak ni Cong Henry ay ang Philippine Fair Competition Act.

Nakita ni Cong Henry, pinag-aralan at nagsumikap na magkaroon ng isang batas para sa pagpapaunlad ng buhay ng Pilipino.

Eto po ang sabi ni Cong Henry sa kanyang sponsorship speech, “Our problem is our numerous laws, which are fragmented and scattered, most of which have remained unenforced and largely ineffective because they do not provide clear guidelines that determine whether an act constitutes unfair competition, monopolistic behavior, or restraint of trade.”

Ang proposed na batas ay para buwagin ang monopolyo sa iba’t-ibang industriya. Hindi lang isang corporation ang may hawak ng isang industriya. Dapat malayang pumasok at lumabas ang mga negosyante sa isang industriya.

Target din ng Philippine Fair Compeition Act na magkaroon ng pantay at malayang competition sa negosyo na isinasaalang-alang interest ng mga consumers.

Pinag-isa ni Cong Henry ang twelve na proposed bills sa issue ng fair competition sa negosyo ng iba’t-ibang mambabatas.

Ito ay 11 bills na approved na sa ilang committees ng Congress na ang mga naging author ay sina Speaker Sonny Belmonte, Reps. Salvacion Ponce Enrile, Rufus Rodriguez, Marcelino Teodoro, Reynaldo Umali, Diosdado Macapagal Arroyo, Teodorico Haresco, Jr., Niel Tupas, Jr., Sergio Apostol, Anthony del Rosario, Mylene Garcia-Albano, Gustavo Tambunting, Romero Quimbo, Reynaldo Umali, Mark Villar, Rodel Batocabe, Sherwin Gatchalian, Gary Alejano, Giorgidi Aggabao at Enrique Cojuangco.

Sabi ni Cong Henry na ang Philippine Fair Competition Act, “will improve the investment climate; allow inclusive growth; and reduce poverty through the protection of small entrepreneurs.”

Alam din ni Cong Henry na “We need a central body to determine if there have been violations of our competition laws and regulations.”

Kaya naman sa proposed na batas may part doon na magtatayo ng Philippine Competition Commission (PCC).

Mulat si Cong Henry sa katotohanan na ipapatupad ng ASEAN integration. Kaya naman priority niya ang batas na ito. Nasa second reading na sa Congress. Malay natin maging batas. Kumbaga, ito ang magiging landmark na batas ni Cong Henry. Parang Henry Cojuangco Law.

Dahil mahiligsa basketball si Cong Henry, street basketball ang kanyang pinagtuunan sa Tarlac.

Opo, eto yung basketball na half court lang.

Eto yung basketball na three-on-three. Tatlo versus tatlo ang labanan.

Bumuo siya ng isang tournament na tinawag na Barkada Ball para sa mga mahilig sa basketball sa first district ng Tarlac.

Basketbal tournament na three-on-three na sinalihan ng 16,000 players.

Siyempre may division na para sa 81 years old pababa at meron din divion para sa 19 to 15 years old.

Ang daming laro niyan ha. Maraming table officials. Maraming referees. Maraming palamig. Maraming kasiyahan sa bawat laro. Barkada- barkada ang naglaro at nanood.
Umikot ang pera. Umikot ang saya. Umikot ang samahan.

DID YOU KNOW? Sa larangan po ng job generation, may ipinagmalaki po si Presidente na nagawa ng isang Mar Roxas nang magsalita siya harap ng mga taga-Tarlac nang dumalosa graduation sa Tarlac State University.. Narito po ang part ng speech niya.

The power of asking why can also be witnessed in the rise of what has become one of our nation’s booming sectors: the IT-BPM sector.

Back when he was the Secretary of Trade and Industry, Mar Roxas wondered why our nation, with its talented and English-speaking work force, couldn’t compete in the IT-BPM industry. For this reason, he worked with industry leaders and launched a program called Make IT Philippines, inviting companies from all around the world to invest in the Philippines and in the Filipino people. The fruits of his efforts are clear as day.

From an industry with just a few thousand workers in the year 2000, the IT-BPM sector is now directly responsible for over a million jobs. This does not include the three to five more indirect jobs created for each direct employee. On top of this, the DTI projects that by 2016, the industry will be employing more than 1.3 million employees–direct employees–and making revenues of around $25 billion.

Opo, si Mar Roxas ang nakakita, nagtulak at nagtaguyod ng Call Center Industry or IT-BPM sector.

Hindi lang sa Makati, hindi lang sa Pasig, hindi lang sa Quezon City lumalago at dumarami ang mga call centers. Hanggang sa mga probinsiya may trabaho na sa call centers.
