    Three days after they began their probe, senators on Sunday said that they want to file criminal charges against local officials and business owners liable for the pollution in the famous Boracay island resort.

    Legarda, who sponsored the PH-EFTA FTA in plenary, stressed that the agreement was negotiated only with the promotion of fair economic cooperation in mind — one that will enable a business environment conducive for investments and provide opportunities for producers, consumers, and service suppliers alike.

    Senator Loren Legarda, sponsor of Senate Resolution No. 647, said the measure concurs with the ratification of the FTA between the Philippines and the EFTA states. The resolution was approved with 19 votes, zero negative vote, and no abstention.

    I have come to greatly admire the leadership of Senator Loren Legarda.

    Some of the legislation that she has not only introduced but enacted, are now being regarded as model for many other countries around the world. She has been a passionate advocate for many years and she is now in a position of great authority and influence in the Senate. I meet with a lot of leaders around the world who deal with the climate issue. It really is a genuine pleasure to work with Senator Legarda.

    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!
