MANILA, July 22 (PIA) — Bureau of Communication Services (BCS), one of the attached agencies under the Presidential Communications Operations Office (PCOO), on Friday (July 19) launched a premium publication that chronicles the exemplary programs of the Executive Branch under the Duterte Administration.
Called Executive Action, the magazine features and highlights the major shifts in policy triggered by Presidential actions, and discusses the resulting change and their positive impact on Filipinos.
In a speech delivered by Secretary Martin Andanar during the event, the Presidential Communications Operations Office chief said the magazine underlines the anticipated narratives of the nation’s state of affairs and complements the unstated nuances of Presidential prerogatives.
“Major shifts in presidential polices and executive programs under this administration that made significant benefits and positive impacts to the lives of the Filipino people are documented through this action magazine,” Andanar said.
He added that there is no better record of major executive functions than the narratives and images in magazine format portraying truth graphically and showing the testimony of the President’s vision for the people.
The Executive Action magazine’s maiden issue titled “Power House” centers on the administration’s inter-agency solution to the Metro Manila traffic and the local government league’s contributions in nation-building.
It features interviews with officials from Inter-Agency on Traffic (i-ACT) discussing each agency’s involvement in programs geared in alleviating traffic. Along with this, national presidents of league of local government units will also be featured highlighting projects in support to the 0 to10-point Socioeconomic Agenda.
Several government officials attended the event including PCOO Undersecretary George Apacible, Transportation Assistant Secretary BGen Manuel Gonzales, and Isabela 6th District Rep. Faustino Dy, actor Robin Padilla also attended the event being part of the promotional side of the magazine.
Earlier this year, BCS launched Balita Central, bi-monthly newspaper dedicated to disseminating updates and development of government projects and programs.
It also intends to dispel fake news by delivering accurate information and making it more available to commuting Filipinos.
Balita Central is available at select LRT 2 stations.
“It is our duty to protect the government from such false news attacks by delivering accurate information to the people about the government’s true agenda.” BCS OIC Eileen Cruz-David said in her closing remarks. (PIA InfoComm)
