Marcos Jr. vows to strengthen agri, tourism sectors in Zambales
IBA, Zambales––Presidential candidate Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. vowed to strengthen the local agriculture and tourism sectors during a grand rally Thursday, March 17, at the Sports Complex in the capital town.
“Kailangan po natin ayusin ang ating agrikultura bukod sa kailangan natin magkaroon ng sapat na pagkain para sa ating mga kababayan ay magbibigay din ng trabaho pag sumigla uli ang sektor ng agrikultura.” Marcos added.
Zambales is primarily agricultural and coastal, with pristine beaches.
“Kailangan natin tulungan ang ating maliliit na negosyo dahil yan po ang magdadala uli ng maraming trabaho para sa ating mga kababayan,” Marcos told a crowd of about 2,500.
Just like in his other campaign sorties, Marcos Jr. reiterated his pitch for “pagkakaisa” (unity) during the rally.
“Tignan po natin ang kasaysayan ng Pilipinas, lahat po ng krisis na hinarap ng Pilipinas, tayo po ay nakaraos dahil tayo ay nagkaisa,” said Marcos.
He was joined by members of his senatorial slate Harry Roque, Sen. Win Gatchalian, Rodante Marcoleta, Sen. Migz Zubiri, Mark Villar, Larry Gadon and Jinggoy Estrada, and other candidates in the province. INQ
