ORTIGOZA: General Bato on Murders, ICC against Him

The reason why former four-star general and national police chief Ronald “Bato” dela Rosa earned a niche in the heart and mind of Filipino voters was not only his derring-do to belt a song or songs while lady spectators pulled their male counterparts to dance with the music he averagely sang but his provincial demeanour spiced up his Cebuano or Mindanaon thick accented Tagalog.


These are his comparative advantage to other senatorial rivals like Bam Aquino, JV Ejercito, and others who were outside the Magic 12 of the 2019 Senate Race’s surveys.

CORTEZ: Chief Justice Carandang?

ENGINE OF PHILIPPINE GROWTH. Mabuti na lang at may opisyal pa ng gobyerno na naniniwala na ang agrikultura ay maaaring engine of growth ng bansang Pilipinas.

Malaking tulong sa kaunlaran ng Pilipinas ang pagpondo sa agriculture value chains.


Opening the gates to agricultural financing will do more than just boost businesses. If accorded equal priority and sufficient resources, agriculture value chains can have a dramatic, transformative effect for our smallholder farmers – better access to credit, technologies and methods, production standards and efficiency, and bigger and ready markets – that amount to an improved quality of life for them and their communities,” sabi ni Fonacier.

Meroong perang puedeng ipautang sa agrikultura.

“I am sure that you are all aware that the issue at hand is not the lack of loanable funds, so much as the need for banks to manage risks properly, and understand the sector’s actual inner workings and why innovative models like agriculture value chain financing are capable of providing the opportunities for banks to delve effectively and successfully into agricultural financing,” sabi ni Fonacier.
