Message to the Millennial Generation (Part 1)

           I was asked to be Commencement Speaker by the Management Committee of UA&P on the occasion of the fiftieth anniversary of our University which started on August 15, 1967.  The vast majority of the graduating students belonged to the millennial generation, those born after 1982.  Much of what I said in my message can be applied to millennials in general with a college education.  With some slight modification, I am addressing this column to the millennials who will be the ones leading this country in the next twenty years towards our goal of becoming a First World Country attaining inclusive and sustainable development, with a poverty incidence of less than 5 per cent of the population by the year 2027.

Thanks to the continuing growth of the Philippines population, Filipinos are in more than 100 countries all over the world, contributing much-needed foreign echange and purchasing power to the Philippine economy and fostering the human and spiritual development of the most diverse of peoples and cultures on this planet.
