PAMPANGA, Philippines — President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. on Monday urged the Philippine Air Force (PAF) to become “resilient” given what he called “geopolitical challenges around our region.”

“Ladies and gentlemen, the days ahead will not be easy and will demand every ounce of our strength and our resilience; the winds of change signal geopolitical challenges around our region and other parts of the world that as yet affect us,” Marcos said in his speech during the PAF anniversary event in Clark Air Base in Mabalacat, Pampanga.


The Commander-in-Chief reaffirmed his commitment to strengthening PAF through the acquisitions under the modernization program of the Armed Forces of the Philippines.

Marcos then emphasized the importance of the PAF in protecting the country’s territory.

“You also remain united in purpose, indomitable in spirit, and unwavering in your dedication to protect our beloved Republic,” the commander-in-chief said.

“The Philippine Air Force maritime air patrol missions are thus essential in upholding our territorial integrity and safeguarding Philippine maritime zones,” he added.
