Marcos expresses commitment to resolving housing shortage.
President Ferdinand Marcos Jr. on Monday, 27 March, reaffirmed that his government is committed to resolving the housing shortage in the country as he instructed the National Housing Authority and the Department of Human Settlements and Urban Development to take action to address the issue.
The President gave the assurance after leading the ceremonial turnover of more than 1,000 housing units in St. Gregory Homes, Malabon, which is part of the National Housing for Filipino Housing program.
In his speech, the President expressed his commitment to ensuring the success of the government’s human settlements and housing projects.
Marcos also emphasized that addressing the significant housing backlog in the Philippines is essential to him.
“Our priority is to address the heavy housing backlog in the Philippines,” Marcos said.
“For this reason, I challenge myself and my fellow government officials at the DHSUD, NHA, and LGUs to address the housing shortage issue during my tenure,” Marcos added.
The Chief Executive also issued a directive to the NHA, DHSUD, and other government agencies to focus on solving problems in government housing projects.
“I am reiterating my directive to the NHA, DHSUD, and other pertinent government agencies to persistently and meticulously resolve the housing problem,” Marcos said.
He said that the NHA and DHSUD should ensure that no one is left behind or neglected in the continuing progress toward providing decent housing for Filipinos.
The President also encouraged the beneficiaries to continue supporting the government’s programs and projects aimed at helping and improving the quality of life of every Filipino.
“I am confident that we can accomplish this goal if we collaborate, follow the law, and unite as Filipinos,” Marcos said.
