Mindanao bilang maritime hub

Hindi susuko si Reelected ANGKLA party-list Rep. Jesulito Manalo sa kaniyang hangarin na maitaguyod ang kaniyang proposal na Philippine Merchant Marine Academy (PMMA) sa Mindanao.

Ayon kay Manalo, panahon na para maging maritime hub ang kanilang rehiyon na makatutulong sa kabataan ng kanilang lugar at pagkakaroon naman ng national development sa pangkalahatan.

“Mindanao’s youth, who cannot afford to enroll in private schools, should be provided access to maritime education and training that meet the international demands and standards for Filipino seafarers,” ani Manalo.

Nais din ng House Bill (HB) No. 5711 na maging premier provider ang bansa pagdating sa certified seafarers sa international seaborne trade.

“Provided, that in the first two (2) years upon the establishment of the PMMA-Mindanao Campus, it shall be under the direct supervision and management of the Board.

Thereafter, it shall enjoy autonomy from the Main Campus,” ani Manalo (Ellson A. Quismorio)
