Malacañang on Thursday launched a free newspaper in a bid to disseminate the latest information on the projects and programs of the Marcos administration.
The first issue of “The Philippine Gazette” focused on the administration’s housing projects.
It also featured stories on government initiatives to push for renewable energy, the Kadiwa ng Pangulo centers, and President’s recent visit to the United States, among others.
Communications Assistant Secretary Francisco Rodriguez III serves as editor-in-chief of the free newspaper.
Joining him in the editorial board are Justine Hernandez as Managing Editor and Trish Alcantara as Associate Editor.
The Palace says the newspaper is available for free in select LRT-2 stations (Recto, Cubao, at Santolan); PNR (Tutuban), and at the Manila North Harbor Terminal and Victory Liner Terminal in Pasay.
Communications Secretary Cheloy Garafil said the Philippine Gazette would be a monthly publication.
“The newspaper will serve as a bridge to deliver to Filipinos information about the programs and projects of the administration of President Ferdinand R. Marcos Jr.,” the PCO said in a statement.
