Ateneo de Davao to host advance screening of President Duterte’s #50FirstDays


The Ateneo de Davao University is hosting the advance screening of the #50FirstDays Documentary at Finster Hall on August 18, 2016 at 9:00AM. The landmark documentary, produced by the Presidential Communications Office (PCO), showcases the achievements of President Duterte’s administration in his first two months in office.

The event will be graced by Ateneo De Davao President Fr. Joel E. Tabora S.J. and the Davao Jesuit Community, Presidential Communications Secretary Martin Andanar, Presidential Spokesperson Ernesto Abella, Assistant Secretary Ramon Cualoping III, officials of Davao City, and 500 members of the academe.

“We are glad that the Ateneo de Davao has been very supportive of the President, hosting the #50FirstDays initiative of the Presidential Communications Office is further proof that they are a bona fide partner for change,” said Andanar.

The documentary, narrated by Presidential Spokesperson Ernesto Abella, tells the story of President Duterte’s first 50 days from the eyes of cabinet secretaries, government officials, the media, and everyday Filipinos. It aims to break the hundred days tradition set by previous presidents.

“Change is happening everyday, so every day is the first day of a new Philippines. It’s only fitting that the Ateneo De Davao is the first to see the documentary, as they have had first-hand experience of the kind of positive change President Duterte brings,” added Andanar. #50FirstDays highlights the positive changes in law and order, bilateral and diplomatic ties, economy, agriculture, infrastructure, transportation, traffic, social welfare, women’s rights and reproductive health, housing, environment, participatory governance through the signing of the executive orders on progressive anti-poverty program and freedom of information, and the groundwork on constitutional amendments for the shift to a federal system.

An interactive website housed on www.president.gov.ph, containing an in-depth look of President Duterte’s early days in office will also be launched as part of the participatory governance agenda of the administration.

“We hope President Duterte’s #50FirstDays will inspire every Filipino to become a partner for change as we embark on this journey for a better Philippines,” said Andanar.
