Senator Loren, Thank you so much for gracing Ani ng Dangal with your inspiring presence. The keynote message that you gave was very empowering to the artists. No other senator or high government official before you had understood how much culture, especially the arts, can contribute to a nation’s development. Best regards!

May I just extend my congratulations to you for shepherding a climate change friendly budget, which is first in Philippine Budget history.
I am glad that the 2016 National Budget is replete with specific provisions concerning climate change adaptation, mitigation and disaster reduction, as well as resiliency. You have stirred the bureaucracy into affirmative action for addressing the problems of climate change.
Thank you, and I look forward to working with you for the betterment of the country and the world.
