Hard work does pay off!
Pangasinan 4th District Representative Christopher “Toff” de Venecia is happy the Senate finally approved on 3rd reading the bill creating the Philippine Space Agency. The House of Representatives had already approved the measure in December 2018.
“I am proud to have fought and pushed for the creation of the Philippine Space Agency that will strengthen our space programs. This will pave the way for Filipino space scientists, space science researchers, and astronomers to forge on in developing the field of astronomical science in the country. It will also help us in global representations on space agreements and arbitrations,” said the politiko.
He said the space agency would help improve the country’s disaster management capabilities.
“These technologies can also improve our production and profitability in agribusiness, preserve the environment, and improve urban planning, transportation, and communication networks,” said De Venecia.
