0 851

Pangasinan 4th District Representative Christopher “Toff” de Venecia believes the youth will benefit the most if the plans to create a Department of Culture pushes through.

On Monday, June 3, the politiko met with stakeholders on the re-filing of the bill creating the new department in the next 18th Congress.

House Bill Number 6260 remains pending at the committee level and will no longer be passed into law in the current 17th Congress, which ends session on Tuesday, June 4.

Still, De Venecia continues to believe the Department of Culture would be beneficial to young Filipinos.

“This bill can be a tool for nation-building, social transformation of an individual and economic advancement of the country. Subsequently, culture and heritage attract investments, encourage tourism, generates employment, and generate tax revenues,” said De Venecia.

“We have high hopes that HB 6260 will be a tool for our young and old to come together and develop nationalism through appreciation and understanding of their cultural identity,” he added.
