Gnomon: The 30th National Public Relations Congress

Fighting fake news and misinformation has become an essential role nowadays, with the advent of rapid technological advancements.

As Keynote Speaker during this year’s 30th National PR Congress, I shared how I was reminded of my days as a journalist to my current post as a legislator, which have taught me the principles of transparency, accountability, and effective communication.

Responsible public relations practice is crucial in maintaining a healthy democracy where trust is built, credibility is strengthened, and public support is maintained, thus allowing the democratic process to thrive.

Thank you to the Public Relations Society of the Philippines (PRSP) for inviting me and being a partner in nation-building. May you continue to be at the forefront of managing ethical communication by promoting accurate information and empowering people to make educated decisions.

Mabuhay po kayo!
