Statement of Presidential Communications Secretary Martin Andanar on the approval of the House of Representatives of the 2021 General Appropriations Bill on its third and final reading


We laud the House of Representatives, under the leadership of House Speaker Lord Allan Jay Velasco, for the approval of the P4.506-trillion 2021 General Appropriations Bill (GAB) on its third and final reading.

As the 2021 GAB progresses to the Senate for its deliberation, the House of Representatives’ approval of the bill will go a long way in helping support and realize the Duterte administration’s outlined undertakings, responses, and programs for our collective recovery from the adverse impacts of COVID-19.

We hope that the Senate’s deliberation on the 2021 GAB will be swift and efficient, in order for us to be on track towards fulfilling our mandate to the Filipinos and our goal of healing, rebounding, and recovering as one nation.
