PBBM TO PMMA GRADUATES: HELP PH MAINTAIN ITS NAME AS GLOBAL FIGURE IN MARITIME INDUSTRY
PRESIDENT Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. urged graduates of the Philippine Merchant Marine Academy to “help the Philippines maintain its name as a global figure in the maritime industry.”
At the commencement exercises of the PMMA “MADASIKLAN” Class 2023, the President rallied the graduates to face challenges bravely.
“Let the opportunity to make a change in our society propel you to excel further and to become the leaders that you were trained and meant to be,” the Chief Executive said.
He lauded them for overcoming the challenges in their studies, particularly at the height of the Covid19 pandemic.
“Whatever challenges you may face, be open to how you can live up to your class name: magigiting na may dangal at simbolo ng kawal ng karagatan,” he added.
“Expect breakthroughs for yourselves, for your families and also for our country. Whichever career path you may pursue, I encourage you to continue to do everything with the same amount of patience and resilience that you have shown during the time you had here in PMMA,” the President said.
