MANILA, Philippines — President Ferdinand “Bongbong” R. Marcos Jr. on Tuesday said his administration is eyeing the construction of  the most number of  housing units.

At the Pag-IBIG Fund Chairman’s Report for Year 2023, Marcos lauded the agency for its high assets. However, he also doubled down on his ambitious directive to build more housing units during his term.  


“With millions of our countrymen denied the right to decent shelter, the stakes could not be higher. So our task is clear: To build the most number of housing units by any administration,” said Marcos in his speech. 


‘These homes shall be happy places where our kababayans can raise their families, spend the best years of their lives — creating joyful memories with those that they love. And I know it is a tall order,” he added. 

Marcos said that the government is actively pursuing the Pambansang Pabahay Para sa Pilipino Housing Program. 

In 2023, Marcos named the said program as a flagship program in Executive Order No. 34. 

“I have always believed that when we are united behind one great purpose, there is nothing that can stop the Filipinos from realizing it. Whether building a nation or a home, this belief in ourselves is our fighting faith,” said Marcos.
