MAMBURAO, Occidental Mindoro, Oct. 4 (PIA) — Occidental Mindoro Vice Governor Peter J. Alfaro advised the student-participants of the ASEAN Youth Forum to prepare well for globalization by observing the four ‘I’.
Speaking before college students of the Occidental Mindoro State College (OMSC), he said that the youth can benefit from ASEAN integration by being
I-nformed of what ASEAN is about and the opportunities open to the youth.
He also said that it is not enough to be informed but that the youth should nurture the value of being I-nquisitive because by doing so one does not stop learning, and, continuous learning makes one competent.
He said that the youth must also be I-nvolved in activities and projects in school and the community to make them socially & environmentally aware and responsible.
Lastly, Alfaro said that it is imperative for today’s youth to be I-nnovative and creative to be able to adopt to the fast-changing times brought about by new technologies and inventions in communications, business and management.
Alfaro gave the Inspirational Message in the ASEAN Youth Forum conducted recently by the Philippine Information Agency – Mimaropa Region at the OMSC Mamburao Campus. Four Provincial Board Members also attended the occasion.
The forum was participated by 750 students coming from the College of Business Administration Management, College of Teacher’s Education, College of Arts, Sciences & Technology, College of Agriculture, and College of Criminal Justice Education. (VSM/PIA-Mimaropa)
