DAET, Camarines Norte -- Former Special Assistant to the President (SAP) and senatorial candidate Christopher Lawrence “Bong” Go vowed to push for more agriculture, tourism, and healthcare programs as he thanked the people of Camarines Norte for their show of support for him and the other senatorial candidates of the Partido Demokratiko Pilipino-Laban ng Bayan (PDP-Laban).
Residents of the province filled the Agro Sports Complex here on Sunday to welcome Go and the PDP-Laban senatorial ticket.
“Maraming salamat po sa mga taga-Camarines Norte sa mainit na pagtanggap ninyo sa amin,” he said.
Go said as part of his legislative agenda, he will help promote agriculture as well as tourism to benefit the province of Camarines Norte and its people.
“Pagbubutihin natin ang lahat ng mga suportang ibinibigay ng pamahalaan sa magsasaka tulad ng abono, patubig, makinarya at maging mga binhi, kasama na dyan ang mga high-yielding at climate resilient crops,” he said.
Go said he would also push for better credit facilities for farmers, with low-interest and streamlined processing to save the farmers from loan sharks.
Noting that Camarines Norte is blessed with natural wonders such as powdery white sand beaches, falls, and pristine islands, Go said it would not take much to realize its potential as a major tourist destination.
“Pag andyan ang mga kailangang infrastructure sigurado akong dadagsa ang mga turista at makikinabang ang buong probinsya. Tutulong po ako na mangyari ito,” he said.
Go also said that as part of his legislative agenda, he would pursue his advocacy to improve access to quality health care, which includes the establishment of Malasakit Center.
“Balang araw po, magkakaroon rin ng Malasakit Center dito sa inyong probinsya para mabigyan ng maayos, mabilis at maaasahang serbisyong medikal ang mga taga-rito,” he said.
A program of the Duterte administration based on Go’s idea, the Malasakit Center makes it easier and faster for poor patients to avail of medical and financial services from the government by bringing together in one room all concerned government agencies such as the DOH, DSWD, PCSO and Philhealth.
