Agri, drugs and preparedness, tackled during 2nd cabinet meeting
Change is coming, and the new Cabinet seems to be preparing well for the change that is yet to come.
Manila Times reported that the second official cabinet meeting, presided by President Duterte, focused on drugs, agriculture and NDRRMC.
Presidential Communications Office head Martin Andanar said in the report that the meeting’s main agenda was on the administration’s anti-drug crusade and preparations for La Niña.
Photos released by his office showed Duterte with Vice President Leni Robredo before the start of the meeting, which was also the first time that the VP joined a Cabinet meeting.
Robredo was recently appointed as Housing and Urban Development Coordinating Council (HUDCC) chief.
The HUDCC manages government policy on housing and development. The National Home Mortgage Finance Corp., Home Guaranty Corp., Home Development Mutual Fund (Pag-IBIG Fund), National Housing Authority, Housing and Land Use Regulatory Board and Social Housing Finance Corp. are affiliated agencies of the HUDCC, Manila Times said.
