SIARGAO, Surigao del Norte--A community based group has been cited by Coca Cola Philippines for its efforts to keep the Surfing Capital of the Philippines free from The Plastic Scourge. Coca Cola Philippines recognized Coke Barkada Awardee, The Sun Crew, with a P30,000 grant personally awarded to The Sun Crew Co-founder and Manager Wemar Bonono by Coca-Cola PH Corporate & Regulatory Affairs Director Atty. Jorenz Tañada during the kick-off for the 25th Siargao International Surfing Cup last October 5. According to its website, The Sun Crew are fighting poverty and plastic pollution on Siargao Island. “We use surfing and education to empower women and children to rise out of

poverty and be the leaders in the fight to preserve their communities and protect the environment.” “Our aim is to ensure the children have the skills and opportunities to overcome poverty and play a key role in protecting their island and local communities.” ( “We started this in 2017 as a means of keeping kids from idleness and roaming around looking for mischief,” Bonono said. “I was also like them when I was young and I don’t want them to end up like me who did not finish my education but instead think ahead about their future.” Bonano and his Australian girlfriend Hannah Boyer came up with the idea to organize Sun Crew to teach children how to surf in exchange for cleaning up the beaches.

Marawi to host Liga Eskwela By LEONIDES ‘JACK’ S. BIANTAN

CAGAYAN de Oro City -- Danny Moran, the No. 1 supporter of Futsal in the country today, will bring his pet project the Liga Eskwela Futsal tournament to Marawi late this year. Moran said the tournament would benefit at least 22 public elementary schools with thousands of students in the war ravaged city in Lanao del Norte. Moran is the CEO of the Henry V. Moran Foundation (established in 2009), named after his late father Henry who had been an avid sportsman. He believed that the discipline and hard work involved in playing sports was an ideal way to develop character, skill, and self-confidence—all qualities needed to deal with real life. For a start Moran Foundation in cooperation with

Gawad Kalinga and IliganLanao Regional Football Association (ILRFA) under Lemuel Mapula will hold the teachers coaching training at the Mindanao State University tentatively set for Oct. 18-19 in Marawi. Asian Confederation (AFC) licensed coaches from ILRFA and Cagayan de Oro City will conduct the trainings of the teachers from all the elementary public schools at the Mindanao State University in Marawi. After the training the teachers will then teach their students the basics of Futsal and then organize their teams for the Liga Eskwela. The Marawi Liga Eskwela will be the first Liga Eskwela outside of Metro Manila. The Liga Eskwela in Manila has been ongoing for the past four years now and has 300 public schools

in 16 school divisions participating. Kids male and female with ages 9- 12 years old and currently studying in 22 public elementary schools in Marawi will benefit from the project. Moran Foundation and Gawad Kalinga will also tap key community members such as teachers, administrators, parents, community leaders, mothers, and other religious leaders who play significant, influential and leading roles in the lives of these youth to make this project a success. The project aims the need to address the risks Marawi youth face such as recruitment to violent extremism, conflict, and lack of economic opportunities. These issues will be addressed through Values and Life Skills Development, Physical activities & games which are age appropriate

and provide experiential learning to youth, to provide Futsal programs that allow the youth to play, and stress-debrief. It also aims to bring about holistic behaviour change for the children and all the stake holders in the community. Established in 2009, The Henry V. Moran Foundation is a non-profit organization focused on developing and helping the youth throughout the many public schools around the Philippines. It is the leader and pioneer in futsal development in the country, working in collaboration with the Philippine Football Federation, and in the past has helped start and develop the football programs of national team player Danny Moran (right) with the Tuloy sa Don Bosco and Former author, will spearhead the start of the the Liga Eskwela See LIGA, page 11

Gov’t. presses on to end insurgency thru poverty alleviation in Bukidnon IMPASUG-ONG, Bukidnon-Keen to address poverty incidence in Bukidnon, Director General of Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) Secretary Isidro S. Lapeña and Senator Juan Miguel Zubiri led the turn-over of Skills Training Centers to the Local Government Units of Impasugong, Cabanglasan, Maramag and Lantapan, October 7. In 2015, the poverty incidence in Bukidnon is recorded to be 53.6 percent the country’s fourth-highest, but 2018 showed a huge cut and declined to 32.1

percent. The optimistic result is attributed to the rise in incomes particularly in the poorest Bukidnon area. Thus, the newly constructed training centers will not only develop the skills of local constituents but more so to capacitate and improve the livelihood of indigenous people who frequently suffer the clutches of poverty in the province, Sen. Zubiri said. Likewise, Lapeña, chairman on Livelihood Cluster of the National Task Force to End Local Communist Armed Conflict (NTF ELCAC), who has been compassionate in ending the com-

munist insurgency, said the newly constructed training centers and other incoming programs of the agency will focus on education and skills development of priority sectors, improvement of the livelihood of indigenous people and also capacitating the former rebels as they go back to the mainstream society. The LGU Skills Training Centers are projected to accommodate 30-40 students and serve courses in Heavy Equipment Operation, Driver/Auto-Mechanic and other Technical-Vocational Courses. (8IB/PIA10)

Sports is essential in Education, it help build in character building and improve health conditions, it as well improve mental sharpness and stamina. Sports develop sense of friendliness, team spirit, and confidence among

children. School in Physical Education encourage sports. Learners become very active both physical & mental. Learners can become a multi-talented kid. They will be learning lots o of things from sports like discipline, team playing and team management. Sports activities make a kid to be engage & also tend to be a

great encouragement. If kid does well in academics they can as well easily shine in extra curricular activities like sports. As a School Sports Coordinator I see to it that scouting potential sport lovers can as well be the edge in developing athletes for an inter-school sports competition.

Father dies, son nabbed in buy-bust By DIVINA M. SUSON Correspondent

ILIGAN City--A 50-year old father died while his son was arrested in a drug buybust operation, Monday afternoon, October 7, in Barangay Poblacion, in Marawi City. Colonel Thomas Pantaleon, chief of Marawi City Police, said Bokhari Alawi, his 19-year old, Salharie and two others, who were able to escape, were the targets of the operation jointly conducted with the Lanao del Sur Drug Enforcement Unit, other units of the Philippine National Police and

Pantaleon, in a phone interview with the Inquirer, said the Alawi father and son were under surveillance for months but police was able to get confidential agent just recently. “Matagal na kaming nakatanggap ng info (that the two are on drug trade) pero kahapon (October 6) lang kami nakahanap ng confi-

dential agent an customer/ suki nila,” Pantaleon said in a text message. Operatives recovered from the scene a caliber 38 revolver loaded with four bullets, nine sachets of believed to be shabu and the one-thousand peso buybust money.

SSS ‘Tokhang’ yields first catch

FOR his stupidity in managing his business, this businessman was the first to go to jail for failure to remit his employees’ SSS contribution. Last tuesday’s opening salvo of SSS version of ‘Tokhang’ yielded its first catch of delinquent employers operating in Cagayan de Oro. Served the first warrant of arrest by the local police was businessman Bienvenido Macareg Jr., owner of Sunny Farm for non-payment of Social Security System (SSS) contributions of his employees. Macareg was charged

for violation of Section 22 (a) and (d) in relation to Sec. 28 of RA 8282 otherwise known as the Social Security Law issued by Hon.Judge Marites Filomena B. Rana-Bernales of 10th Judicial Region Branch 39. The arrest of Macareg was executed following the issuance of an arrest warrant, after a pre-operation conducted by SSS in the general list of employers with unser ved Warrant of Arrest of Employer Delinquency Monitoring Department. In a press conference held prior to the ‘Tokhang’,

SSS authorities issued stern warning to delinquent employers in Northern Mindanao to strictly comply with RA 8282. SSS urged employers to religiously pay the contributions and salary loan payments of their employees and remit them to SSS on time. Those employers who fail to settle their obligation face legal consequences as the SSS accelerates its campaign against delinquent employers. In a report, the SSS has been losing millions of unremitted contributions annually from employers

who shy away their obligations with the government. How serious is this SSS ‘tokhang’? Perhaps the answer lies on how strong the political will of the implementation of RA 8282. Having said that, pray that this campaign to clean SSS with bad employers may not end up another ‘ningas cogon’ (ruffy44_

Hints and Traces

Never forget God’s mercy IT’S, OF COURSE, good that we constantly highlight God’s call for us to follow him, to be holy and perfect as he is, since we have been created in his image and likeness. It’s good that we are always reminded to love, to pray, to make sacrifices, to frequent the sacraments, to develop virtues, to wage a life-long ascetical struggle, etc. But we should never forget that in spite of our best intentions and efforts, we somehow also fall short of what is expected of us and that in the end we need God’s mercy to enable us to attain the dignity God is giving us. Yes, God is indeed very demanding of us. He wants everything from us. He wants us to love him with all our heart and to love our neighbor, including our enemies, as we love ourselves and even as Christ himself has loved us by offering his life for us. But he is also very compassionate with

the weak and the sinners. As shown by Christ, God gives special attention to them. “As surely as I live,” God said in the Book of Ezekiel, “I take no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but rather that they turn from their ways and live.” (33, 11) And as shown by Christ, God does not wait for man to turn back to him. He takes the initiative to reach out to us, sinners. In all the miracles that he performed, Christ was more interested in forgiving the sins of those involved than in healing them of their infirmities and predicaments. His love and compassion went beyond the concern for the bodily health of those characters. He focused more on their spiritual recovery. We should not forget that while God’s grace and mercy need to be merited, he also gives them to us gratuitously. In spite of our best efforts, we really can-

not deserve them. We may ask for them as we ought to do, but God gives them to us gratuitously. We have to be wary of the danger of Pelagianism, the erroneous belief that we do not need divine grace to choose good or evil, and to attain holiness. We have to see to it that in proclaiming the gospel to the others, in our effort to present Christ to the others, we should not simply talk about the strictness of God’s demands and expectations from us, the high standard that he is setting for us. This will scare people more than attract them to Christ. We should always include God’s mercy in all our preaching and counseling. This will always require an intimate relationship with God himself to be able to come out with the proper mixture of God’s demanding ways and his ever-ready mercy. Priests especially need to know when he is too strict and harsh and when

Roy Cimagala

he is too lenient. That’s why they need to be truly men of God, souls of prayer and solid formation. It is, of course, very helpful if priests, for example, would examine themselves regularly as to whether they are presenting Christ fairly to the people or whether they are highlighting one side of Christ to the detriment of the other side or angles or aspects in Christ’s life and teachings. It would be good if we, priests, can find a way of assessing whether the people are making progress in their spiritual life or not. Some consultations may be advisable, and also a mechanism for getting feedbacks from the people. It may happen that what may See MERCY, page 11

Letters from Davao

Death wish, bad wish

BEWARE of what you wish and pray for. It could boomerang. Jim Paredes is so consumed with his hatred for Pres. Rodrigo Duterte, he plastered his face on Facebook angry at the man he cannot accept has at least 16-million fans who voted him to office instead of a wimp he had hoped will succeed Benigno Aquino III and perpetuate the Yellow administration. For one reason or another, he was caught literally with his pants down and exposed his orgasmic interlude in the whole wide world. I have no wish to desecrate the dead so I will not mention his name here. It’s eerie and portentous but this latest case of a high profile character had made public his wish last

Sunday for Duterte to just drop dead. The next day he kicked the bucket in what the family members described from a “natural cause”. This recent case suddenly brings back in a rush what happened to people who wanted and even prayed that Duterte either gets sick or land in jail. What happened is the reverse. The President who openly admits he is sick is actually strong he can outlast his cabinet officials in meetings that oftentimes would last up to the wee hours. Sen. Leila de Lima who, as Chairperson of the Commission on Human Rights, had been hounding him with charges since 1989 up to the time she became senator is now de-

tained for her involvement in the drug trade. Another Sen. Antonio Trillanes who wants Duterte jailed for the death of some 27,000 alleged victims of extrajudicial killings conjured by his perjured witnesses, is now out of the Senate and is facing various charges in various courts which could land him in the calaboose. In juxtaposition, ex-CHR Chair Etta Rosales, who had wished the Marcoses jailed and dispossessed of what she claimed were illgotten wealth, is in hysteria after the Sandiganbayan dismissed charges against the latter. In a fit of anger, she blamed President Duterte for lack of support in seeing to it that the Sandiganbayan rules otherwise. Etta conveniently forgot that all the

Jun Ledesma

cases against the Marcos family were filed during the Cory Aquino regime. Before Duterte’s term, there were Presidents Fidel Ramos, Joseph Estrada, Gloria Macapagal Arroyo, and Benigno Simeon Aquino III! Strange? God must be listening to the more than 80 percent Filipinos approving of what Rodrigo Duterte, the man from the boondocks, is doing. And here lies the saying: “the voice of the People is the voice of God”. Next time, beware of what you are praying and wishing for.

PHL needs to accelerate reforms THE Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) called for faster reforms to improve its competitiveness ranking in the World Economic Forum (WEF) Global Competitiveness Report. The Philippines’ score-- or its distance to frontier-- was relatively flat at 61.9 from 62.1, while other countries scored better and improved their ranking relative to Philippines. The WEF released its Global Competitiveness Index 4.0 (2019 edition) that showed the Philippines’ ranking drop 8 notches, from 56th to 64th out of 141 countries. The country has to redefine its National Competitiveness Agenda consistent with the WEF indicators covering enabling environment, human capital, markets, and innovation ecosystem, as well as the 4 pillars of DTI’s Cities and Municipalities Competitiveness Index (CMCI) on economic dynamism, government efficiency, infrastructure, and resilience.

Diaspora Indonesia family gathering October 5 - In the pursue of reuniting all Indonesians in Mindanao, Hon. Consul General Dicky Fabrian of the Consulate General of the Republic of Indonesia hosted an event “Diaspora Indonesia Family Gathering” at the House of Indonesia, Juna Subd, Davao City. Diaspora Indonesia are people with Indonesian origin who live outside Indonesia with temporary resident status. Also, foreigners who already shared the same Indonesian values and considered Indonesia as their second home, are also Diaspora Indonesia. In the opening statement of ConGen Dicky, he expressed his gratitude for all Indonesian Diaspora who came from different parts of Mindanao. “In this momentous event, it is my pleasure to welcome all of you to be part of this auspicious event. I hope this gathering will make as more compact and reunited as a family” said ConGen Dicky. “This will be a quarterly event and I am inviting all Diaspora Indonesia to come to our much bigger family gathering next year. Today, we will have two competitions;

table tennis and domino. We compete not for the price, but to show our talents and build networks through sports. There will be no losers in this event because being reunited with your family, all of us are already winners” added ConGen Dicky. “The changing nature embody broader trends for Diasporas in every nation. Today, national/ ethnic identification, political community, and place of residence do not automatically fit together neatly. Instead, migrants have multiple attachments that modern technology has fa-

cilitated. Their political identities and practices are shaped between and within the contexts of both migrant homelands and host societies. We cannot expect today’s migrants simply to cut their roots” explained ConGen Dicky. All participants enjoyed the gathering especially they can taste Indonesian cuisine that were prepared by the In d o n e s i a n Wo m e n’s Association headed by Madame Fera Andriani Fabrian.

Navigate the New Globalization by capacitating our farmers—MinDA chief LOCAL farmers in Mindanao need to adopt new technologies in agriculture, particularly in rice farming, to increase productivity. This is according to Secretary Emmanuel Piñol, the newly-installed head of the Mindanao Development Authority (MinDA) and former chief of the Department of Agriculture, during the Fifth Mindanao Policy Research Forum (MPRF) held in General Santos City recently with the theme “Navigating the Challenges of the New Globalization: Local Actions for Mindanao”. “The New Globalization is a double-edged sword. If you are prepared for it [then] you will benefit from it. [But] if you are not prepared, woe to you. [To be able] to survive the New Globalization, we have to capacitate our stakeholders, especially in the area of agriculture. We have to

adopt modern technologies, prepare [our farmers], [as well as] organize and empower them. This is the only way we could benefit from the New Globalization,” said Piñol. He expressed confidence that Mindanao could serve as the country’s front door in terms of exporting rice to international markets. “We are the only area in the country that is not often hit by typhoons compared to Northern Luzon. This is our advantage. [Also,] our soil is more fertile than that of Luzon,” he said. At the national level, Piñol claimed that “The Philippines can be ricesufficient.” He said this can be achieved by using five simple measures: goodquality seeds (hybrid and inbred), sufficient water for irrigation, soil, modern machinery, and access to capital for financing. “We have 4.9 million

hectares of rice farms harvested every year. If we can only increase our yield by 2 metric tons of rice per hectare per harvest, that would be 9.8 million metric tons of rice. Sobra-sobra na yun. Theoretically, it is attainable,” he pointed out. However, Piñol lamented that investments in agriculture remain low in the Philippines. “Ang problema, just like in any business, agriculture needs investment. You need water, good seeds, fertilizers, machinery, and capital [but] these were absent in the program [of the government],” he said. “Ang kalaban natin like Viet Nam and Thailand are supported by their governments. May mga hidden subsidies. In fact, they have their own agencies that handle rice exports. Viet Nam, for example, has Vinafood, [a state-owned corporation tasked by the Vietnamese government to export rice

in Southeast Asia],” Pinol further stated. Another issue, according to Pinol, is that big traders dominate the market and they are making huge profits from importing rice. “The landed cost of importing rice now is about PHP 23.00 per kilo. The selling price in the market is PHP 40-50 a kilo. Ang tinutubo nila ay PHP 10.00 kada kilo. Sino ang trader na hindi sasali diyan? So nobody wants to buy the local rice anymore because the marginal profit is very thin and the risks are high. You have to dry it, mill it, and keep it in in your warehouse. Whereas, if you import the rice, you only have to ship it into the market,” he explained. Piñol also said that some government interventions are off-target. While it provides financial subsidies and fertilizers to local farmers, the absence of a market where they can sell their


and enrolment for PhilSys in the region will commence in July 2020 and will prioritize those considered as vulnerable sectors, particularly the Indigenous Peoples (IPs) and members of the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps). “In terms of the physical aspect of our preparations we are already ready,” Apura said, adding that building facilities in the regional center of the PSA, particularly the conference room and the two dormitories will be utilized during the enrolment and

registration. Provincial and municipal level registration centers will also be opened in the entire region, she said. “We are also waiting for the approval of the DBM (Department of Budget and Management) for the hiring of 2,100 positions, of which, eight positions will be opened in Caraga Regional office and seven personnel each in our provinces,” Apura added. Various equipment that will be used for enrolment are now being tested and are scheduled to be delivered to the region, she said. PSA-Caraga has already facilitated a series of information drives in provinces and municipalities regarding the PhilSys. Dissemination of information was also done in various

forums and gatherings to answer the apprehensions, questions, and worries of the people regarding the establishment of a single national identification system for all citizens. “We have already made information dissemination to various groups, for example to the Mindanao Civil Registrars when they had their convention, and the gathering of barangay captains and secretaries last month,” Apura said. More information drives will also be conducted in the remaining months of this year until next year before the start of the PhilSys enrolment. “The people of Caraga Region are already informed and I know that they are happy because of the ID that will be very useful to various transactions in the government as well as private institutions,” Apura added.

produce is still a major issue. Given these challenges, Pinol urged government to intensify its support and provide the necessary interventions to local farmers. “I believe that Filipino farmers could compete [internationally] if only they are supported by government,” Pinol said. In particular, he stressed the need to capacitate local farmers and elevate them to the level of processors and marketers of their own products. “Make them strong, empower them, improve their productivity, to the point that the cost of production

would go down. For so long, they have remained as mere producers of raw materials, therefore, they are dependent on middlemen and processors,” he pointed out. The MPRF is a regular event jointly undertaken by PIDS and the Mindanao Development Authority (MinDA), in partnership with a local university. This year, PIDS and MinDA collaborated with the Mindanao State University – GenSan campus. Launched in 2015, the MPRF is part of a series of activities organized every September to celebrate the Development Policy Research Month.

One Team, One Goal, Lifetime Success By SHERA MAY M. LACANGLACANG SST-I, CDONHS-JHS

Cagayan de Oro National High School-Junior High School brought immense pride to the entire DepEd family of Region 10 during the recent national celebration of World Teachers’ Day held here at Cagayan de Oro City last October 5, 2019. The World Teachers’ Day is observed through Presidential Proclamation No. 242 that designates October 5 as National Teachers’ Day as set by the United Nations Education, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). Cagayan de Oro City had been chosen this year as the venue for the prestigious annual event conducted by the Department of Education. As the center school in the city, Cagayan de Oro National High School proved that with one mindset, goals can be achieved for the success of an activity. Various activities were spearheaded by the school through the leadership of its school principal, Mr. William C. Agomana who actively led and supported the teachers in the different activities. Different programs and curriculums joined hands together as the school was assigned as billeting quarter for Region IX Zamboanga Peninsula. The visitors were amazed

by the warm welcome given to them—from opening program, food, and classrooms. The Special Program in the Arts Theatre Arts and Music Instruments specializations were also privileged to welcome the DepEd dignitaries at Laguindingan Airport. This one-time event showcased the talents of the SPA students in dancing and playing instruments that brought astounding comments from the audience, both foreigners and locals. The Dance Arts students also threw some spectacular performances at Lim Ket Kai Atrium in their restaging of Kagayang and creative introduction to the DepEd Secretary Leonor Magtolis Briones. TLE teachers also exhibited their skills through their venue preparation at the Atrium. How little or big the task was assigned to them, the whole CDONHS-JHS community helped and served their purpose that parts are important for a body to function. This, the CDONHS-JHS as part of Region X, the host region. “After all the hectic and sandwiched schedule we had, our effort as one school would always be a lifetime experience that we can never forget,” Mr. William C. Agomana the school principal said.

KAGAYANG hits twice the national arena By SUNSHINE R. VILLEGAS MT-I, CDONHS-JHS

The Cagayan de Oro National High School –Junior High Special Program in the Arts has once again staged in the national level the story of KAGAYANG based from the local folklore written by Fr. Francisco R. Demetrio, S.J. in his compiled book titled “The Local Historical Sources of Northern Mindanao”. The legend was recreated and written by the creative student-writers headed by Ms. Sahira D. Mapandi, the Creative Writing specialist. The story revolves around the Cagayan de Oro River which has many widespread stories underneath its mysterious surface.It can be remembered that Kagayang was successfully staged by the SPA students last February 19, 2019 during the SPA recital at Lim Ket Kai Atrium, Cagayan de Oro City featuring the mix media approach of presentation. The collaborative efforts of the different SPA specializations have garnered positive reviews from the audience coming from the different secondary schools

of the division of Cagayan de Oro City. With much appreciated and “talk of the town performance”, the confidence of the DepEd Region X Office had opened the opportunity to stage the show twice in the national arena. First, it was staged at Abreeza Mall Davao City during the Sining Pangkabuhayan last July 24, 2019 where the story was collaborated and performed by the different delegates from Region X, namely, Tangub City, Lanao del Norte and other SPA schools from the division of Cagayan de Oro namely the Lapasan NHS, Agusan NHS and Cagayan de Oro NHS on the lead. The event has strengthened the program of CDONHS-SPA to showcase the talents and skills of the young artists on stage and at the same time coordinated with other SPA schools within the region. Just recently, the same production was staged in the World Teachers’ Day nationwide celebration at Lim Ket Kai Atrium last October 5, 2019. Kagayang had received another positive feedback

from the audience across the country which most of them are pillars in the Department of Education. This is a proof that enriching the local culture is cultivated in the awareness of the present life which can be trailed back from the past through our folklore that brings out the values and importance of our cultural heritage. The strong tie with the national government as stipulated in the constitu-

tion particularly in Sec. 7 Article 7 highlights this importance. This states that our nation should empower patriotism and nationalism through the arts to accelerate social progress and promote total human liberation and development. Thus, the schools such as CDONHS-JHS SPA used this as a tool to showcase our local culture as a means of giving information in this modern generation.

loving I became understanding, dedicated, innovative, and creative; and the lack of books and commercialized materials is not the root of incompetence but complacency. Indeed, awareness and sensitivity are essential factors to deliver competent teaching and comprehensive learning. Personal and professional lives are not easy to juggle with. Both are like plants that need tender, love and care to grow healthy and strong. Weeds of challenges are inevitable but the way we fight against them makes a mammoth difference. My DepEd journey still has a long path to traverse. What I am today may differ tomorrow. All I ever wanted is a better me each step of the way and a happier me all throughout each passing day.

“Be happy with what you have and are, be generous with both, and you won’t have to hunt for happiness.” This saying reflects my nine years of public school service. Yes, there were down moments that hit me hard; yet, choosing to be happy made me flourish and become the person and teacher I am today. Teaching is my profession and it is my life. Like my family, it gives me joy as it allows me to mold young minds become emotionally and spiritually mature. It gives me a chance to mentor and partner with my co-educators and esteemed stakeholders. Honestly, I have my own share of doubts and skepticisms in the implemented programs of the department.

from page 5 indicator’ with 98 indicators distributed across 12 pillars, namely: Institutions, Infrastructure, ICT adoption, Macroeconomic, Health, Skills, Product Market, Labour Market, Financial System Market Size, Business Dynamism, and Innovation Capability. In the 2019 Global Competitiveness Report, the Philippines posted improvement on Pillar 1: Institutions where the survey showed an increase in rank from 101st to 87th or +14 notches. Notable was the improvement on the sub indicator “future orientation of government,” which rose from 77th to 60th. Sec. Lopez said this increase shows the significant headway made by government in terms of readiness towards digital economy and the challenges of Fourth Industrial revolution. “The impact of RA 11032 or the Ease of Doing Business and Efficient Government Service Delivery Act, the Philippine Innovation Act, and the Innovative Start-up Act should result to even higher ranking in the succeeding cycles. We are updating the Philippine eCommerce roadmap to maximize the potential that e-commerce brings,” said Sec. Lopez. Aside from Pillar 1: Institutions, the Philippines also improved its ranks on Pillar 7: Product Market from 60th to 52nd (+8) and Pillar 10: Market Size from 32nd to 31st (+1). Meanwhile, The Philippines‘ ranking declined in the following pillars:

Pillar 2: Infrastructure from 92nd to 96th Pillar 3: ICT Adoption from 67th to 88th Pillar 4: Macroeconomic from 43rd to 55th Pillar 5: Health from 101st to 102nd Pillar 8: Labour Market from 36th to 39th Pillar 9: Financial System from 39th to 43rd Pillar 11: Business Dynamism from 39th to 44th Pillar 12: Innovation Capability from 67th to 72nd “Reforms have to be sustained to always make the country move forward relative to others,” said Sec. Lopez. The drop in the Philippines’ ranking on ICT adoption from 67th to 88th is expected to rebound with the implementation of the EODB Act mandating government automation in frontline services. DTI has initiated an end-to-end registration under its Business Name Registration Next Generation System, which now provides more online payment facilities for fast and efficient online government transactions. There are also ongoing efforts to expand the online government transaction to include end-to-end processes from the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to the Mayor’s permit and the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) business registration. “The recent signing of our Memorandum of Agreement with Skills Future Singapore-the 2019 GCI Most Competitive Economy-- is also expected to improve the quantity and quality of our skilled workforce

Friday, October 11, 2019 for our priority industries,” said the Trade Secretary. “On macroeconomic stability, we expect a major improvement since inflation, after soaring last year, has been addressed by an effective combination of fiscal and monetary policy actions. This has resulted to an immediate reversal, registering at 0.9% as of September and is expected to remain low for the next 2 to 3 years,” added Sec. Lopez. The DTI Secretary reported that he recently issued a Department Order stating the DTI Policy on National Competitiveness anchored on Regional Competitiveness. The DTI Competitiveness and

Innovation Group (CIG) has been directed to develop a competitiveness agenda guided by global competitiveness indices. It also mandates the strengthening of Regional Competitiveness Committees and to use the CMCI as tool to improve competitiveness on the local level since building local competitiveness is critical to long-term national competitiveness, according to DTI. Sec. Lopez also mentioned that DTI has turned over the monitoring of Ease of Doing Business (EODB) reforms to the newly-organized Anti-Red Tape Authority (ARTA) with the enactment of the EODB

Act. “This will now allow DTI to focus on other horizontal issues to improve national competitiveness,” he added. Moreover, Sec. Lopez said DTI has endorsed to the Office of the President a proposed Executive Order (EO) creating an Inter-Cabinet Cluster on Competitiveness (I-CCC), that will address impediments to competitiveness using a wholeof-government approach. The proposed Executive Order will bring together national agencies such as the departments of Trade and Industry (DTI), Interior and Local Government (DILG), Finance (DOF), as well as the National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA), the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA), other concerned government agencies, and ‘eminent persons’ from the private sector that will work jointly at the national and regional levels. Lastly, the Trade Chief said DTI needs to fully understand the WEF methodology since 30% is based on an opinion survey by executives. Seventy percent of the indicator weight derived its results from various specialized organizations such as the World Bank, IMF, WTO, WHO, etc. Meanwhile, 30% are from the WEF’s Execu-

tive Opinion Survey, which involves 15,000 business executives surveyed with the help of 160+ partner institutes.

from page 1 Mayor Ernesto Evangelista said the establishment of the processing plant was part of the local government’s continuing effort to help rice farmers affected with the implementation of Republic Act 11203 or the Rice Tariffication Law (RTL). “This project serves a living proof that our municipal government could actively address the problems faced by the rice farmers and the agricultural sector, in general. We hope this project could also generate local employment for our people since this will be managed by a cooperative,” Evangelista said in his speech. The local chief executive has urged rice farmers from other barangays to take advantage of the facility as it would lessen their production costs. Municipal Agriculturist Elmer Degorio said the multipass rice mill was funded under the Department of Agriculture’s (DA) rice program. “GISACO will take ownership of the project. This project could generate income and provide enough financing for their operations especially to qualified farmers who are engaged in rice farming,” he said. Degorio explained that farmers could avail of the services once GISACO starts operating the multi-pass rice mill.


Friday, October 11, 2019 “A multi-pass rice mill has a recovery rate from 65 percent to 70 percent. The farmers’ rice mills will be more efficient than most that are currently operated by rice millers,” he said. Apart from the multi-pass rice mill, GISACO also received several pieces of farm machinery such as pre-cleaning systems, a destoner unit, rubber huller, paddy separator, and a multi-pass whitening system.

from page 1 excel would be given lessons and time to use surfboards brought by Hannah from Sydney. Most of the boards are donated by Australian surfers and Hannah brings them back from Sydney. Smart, Sustainable Surfers Dubbed “Smart, Sustainable Surfers”, the project uses the children’s love of surfing as the incentive for participating in education, sustainability and skills programs. The project aims to create a generation of well educated, environmentally conscious students who have the skills and opportunities necessary to alleviate poverty and protect the environment. Children earn ‘SSS Points’ by attending school and participating in project activities such as beach cleans, eco-bricking workshops, English classes and a variety of skills classes. The number of points earned at the end of each week determines which children can use the Sun Crew boards. Children must attend school for a minimum of 4 days to be eligible to surf and members with the most points get first dibs at board time. Surf instructors from the local community are employed to ensure the safety of the children while in the water. The project is designed to teach children about the importance of education, believing in their own potential, and demanding more from themselves and their communities. Some 50 kids aged 8-16 years have so far benefitted from the project. However, older kids who just want to learn how to surf and help keep the environment clean have also been involved in the project. “We don’t allow kids to borrow the surfboards if they miss their classes,” Wemar said. “If they study, they can borrow the boards anytime during weekend. We get their attendance every Friday to verify if they indeed attended classes.” Core Values The Sun Crew have adopted Sustainability, Education and Empowerment as its Core Values. “The ocean provides rural island communities with food, income and ultimately life and preserving the ocean is at the heart of all of we do.” “We believe the fight to

overcome poverty and the fight to address plastic pollution are the same fight, and education is the key.” “We believe that empowering women and children with skills, knowledge and opportunities is the best way to create effective, lasting change.” Sun Crew Projects Besides Smart, Sustainable Surfers, the group are also undertaking other projects such as Plastic Forward as its local solution to address the plastic waste problem facing the Philippine seas and oceans worldwide. “Our SSS kids collect plastic wastes from households every end of the month and help us in our beach clean-up every weekend. On weekdays, they also help us cut up soft plastics like sachets and these form the material we use to make pillows that we use. In the future we hope to sell these also to raise funds for our projects,” Wemar said. Tours with Impact is designed to ensure local residents are the major benefactors of tourism in Surigao through their Charity Surf School that employs local people from rural villages with 100% of profits go towards creating fair-employment for local people and supporting our education, sustainability and skills programs in the local community. Not the least, Wahines on Waves aims to empower women to uplift communities from poverty by creating lasting change. This project enables young girls to surf and to be actively engaged in their education, encouraging them to pursue a future beyond the traditional role of women in rural communities. “We work with local women to educate them on sustainable practices and empower them to be the leaders in the fight to protect the environment. We employ local women to run our programs, providing stable income to multiple families in the community. We believe that supporting these women and their children is the key to the achieving the sustainable island communities we are working to create.” Future Plans At present, The Sun Crew’s activities are confined to Siargao but they plan to extend to Baler, Aurora; Surigao del Sur, and other surfing destinations in the future. Now 23, Wemar started surfing when he was only 10 in his hometown of Barangay Pacifico in San Isidro Municipality. He taught himself surfing but was later coached by Manuel Melindo of Cloud 9 when he joined Team Siargao. For the long term, The Sun Crew plan to acquire a plastic recycling machine and have submitted a proposal to Coca-Cola Philippines for consideration. The Sun Crew would also like to contribute their equity investment in the
