CHED will soon sign a memorandum of understanding with TVUP for the production of video materials consistent with the MOU, de Vera III announced.

Dito [sa UP] ay hinuhubog ang isip ng mga estudyante upang sila ay magkaroon ng malalim na pagmamahal sa bayan. Ito pong ating gagawin ngayong hapon ay isang gawain para sa ating pagmamahal sa bayan [Here we shape the minds of students toward a profound love of country. Our activity this afternoon is a means for our love of country],” Concepcion said. “Kinakailangan po ang ating bayan ay pamunuan ng mga taong may pagmamahal sa bayan [Our country needs to be led by people who have love of country].”

Hindi natin masusugpo ang katiwalian kung tayo ay magkukulong lamang [We cannot eradicate corruption if we simply put people behind bars],” he added. “Kinakailangan nating baguhin ang pag-iisip ng lipunan [We need to change the way society thinks]. Mass media is very powerful in changing outlooks, mindsets,” Concepcion said during the press conference after the MOU signing, relating his observation of teleseryes being very influential among the youth.
