Senator Loren Legarda’s Statement of Support for Budget Secretary Benjamin Diokno

December 13, 2018

Secretary Benjamin Diokno is a man of integrity and his competence is unquestionable. Even in his previous stints in government, he has been known for introducing reforms that would enhance transparency and improve the efficiency of government service.

As Chair of the Committee on Finance, I have been working with him not only on the annual national budget but also on proposed measures to reform the budget system and in all those times he has proven that he is a no-nonsense man and an honest public servant.

I firmly believe in Secretary Diokno’s integrity and in his capability to carry out reforms and introduce programs that would ensure equitable, inclusive, resilient and sustainable growth for our country. He has my full support.
