Gusto Mo Pumunta Sa US? Don’t “Lie” In Visa Applications

KUNG BISITA o turista ka lang sa United States, hindi ka makakaligtas kung magsisinungaling ka.

Nag-warning si US State Secretary Rex Tillerson sa mga bisita na manggagaling sa mga bansang nagre-require ng visa na iwasa ang “deliberately lying” sa kanilang visa applications “or face dire consequences”.

Sa bagong guidelines na inilabas ng US State Department sa mga immigration and consular offices sa ibang bansa, sinaad ditto na ang mga mamamayan ng mga bansang ito na nangangailan ng visa upang makatuntong sa America, tulad ng Pilipinas, ay kinakailangang mag-file at ilahad ang plano tatlong buwan o higit pa bago ang takdang…

The Launch: TRANSPORT ASIA is Born
The TRANSPORT ASIA Editorial Team

By Rose de la Cruz

THE COUNTRY’S only industry magazine, Transport Asia, was launched last September 28 to share with government officials, stakeholders, and the public sectoral information that is not obtained from other similar publications. 

Held at Club Filipino, the event was attended by mostly captains of industry, regulators, media friends and colleagues. Transport Asia is one of the publications of the Opinyon Media Advocacies, Inc.

Keynote Speaker Communication Secretary Martin Andanar underscored the massive infrastructure program of the Duterte administration under its Build Build Build agenda.

Andanar mentioned that “presently ongoing and on…

Government is tops in contractualization scheme

By Rose de la Cruz

PRESIDENT Rodrigo Roa Duterte wants contractualization by private companies to stop. But he forgets that government is the top adopter of this global (mal)practice.

In a speech before the Parish Pastoral Council for Responsible Voting (PPCRV) at the palace, the President told the private companies “whether you are SM or others to stop this practice because of your desire for profits.”

But he must have forgotten that government is the top institutional practitioner of contractualization through job orders, project hires, casuals, contractuals and consultants among others.

The number of people hired under these different…

While many prominent business leaders are amenable to the proposed charter change that would pave the way for the shift of our form of government from unitary presidential to federalism, still some of them are unsure if the shift is indeed necessary.

In a recent interview Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry (PCCI) honorary chairman Sergio Ortiz-Luis Jr. said that while federalism is a novel concept that maybe worth exploring, it would be better…

OpinYon Back-Page Stories: Garrison at the Palace?

PCO secretary Martin Andanar

By Rose de la Cruz

CONTRARY to its welcoming name, the Presidential Communications Office (PCO) in Malacanang is the last place to go to for information.

Oddly, it operates much like a garrison for media outsiders wanting to interview or participate in briefings and its head Sec. Jose Ruperto Martin M. Andanar appears to be relishing on the same.

Everything seems to be controlled and centralized. Only PCO Secretary Martin M. Andanar or his subaltern for media relations, Undersecretary Queenie Rudolfo or a written permit from them would allow one to get past through Gate 2…
