PRESIDENT RODRIGO R. Duterte’s Cabinet officials are set to hold a series of forums to discuss the policies, programs, and achievements of his administration in preparation for his fourth State of the Nation Address (SONA). In a statement on Tuesday, Presidential Spokesperson Salvador S. Panelo said Cabinet Secretary Karlo B. Nograles updated the President’s men during the Cabinet meeting last Monday with the pre-SONA activities. “There are three pre-SONA forums to be spearheaded by the Presidential Communications Operations Office. The first forum, entitled Patuloy na Pag-unlad to be led by the Economic Development and Infrastructure Cluster, will be held in Manila on July 1. The second one, Patuloy na Malasakit at Pag-kakaisa, will be led by the Human Development and Poverty Reduction Cluster, alongside with the Participatory Governance Cluster, in Cebu City on July 10. “Lastly, the Patuloy na Katatagan will be held in Davao City on July 17 and shall be presented by the Climate Change Adaptation, Mitigation and Disaster Risk Reduction Cluster and the Security, Justice and Peace Cluster,” Mr. Panelo said. — Arjay L.
