JINGGOY BATS FOR RENEWED SELF-RELIANT DEFENSE POSTURE PROGRAM: Sen. Jinggoy Ejercito Estrada sponsors Senate Bill No. 2455 or the proposed Self-Reliant Defense Posture Revitalization Act on Wednesday, September 27, 2023. Estrada said the bill aims to strengthen the Philippines’ defense against present and future security threats by developing a national defense industry and incentivizing the domestic production of defense assets. “No doubt, we have the capability to develop our own, we just have to throw our full support and lay down policies that will catalyze its growth,” the Committee on National Defense and Security, Peace, Unification and Reconciliation chairperson said in his speech.
