Malacañang said Duterte is expected to discuss Philippines’ improvements under his watch the past five years, focusing on peace and security, infrastructure and foreign policies.

Communications Secretary Martin Andanar said the President’s final Sona will focus on his administration’s “heirloom legacies” and will surely be “memorable and significant to the Filipino people.”
