Buenas dias! (Good morning!)

I am honored to join you on this day, which marks the beginning of new opportunities for these young graduates seated before me.

Today’s ceremony demonstrates the U.S. Government’s ongoing commitment to help bring peace and stability in Mindanao. Graduates, we have no doubt that you will shape a more stable and prosperous future for the Philippines.
