5 Global Issues Deemed to be the Most Important Issues in the Philippines

I have listed five global issues deemed to be the most important issues to be given concern by the Philippines.

I have listed five global issues deemed to be the most important issues to be given concern by the Philippines.

Transparency

As defined, transparency implies openness, communication and accountability. It is meant to hold public officials accountable to fight corruption. With these statements, it is clearly seen that if only we have transparency in Philippine Government, all other major and minor issues in the country shall be addressed and shall be solved. Issues on Accountability, Dictatorship and Military Adventurism and Political Corruption, most importantly, are among the issues comprehended.

I have chosen “Transparency” as prime issue to be addressed for it connotes attitude of public officials, who are considered to be the leaders of the country. Those are leaders who will give greatest happiness for the greatest number of people. Those are Public officers and servants with pre-defined accountability to common good of the people, as duty “to serve and protect”.

Transparency is good leadership. Good leadership provides better organization with balance projects and strategic programs. This in return creates a Government with good governance and good citizenship.

Poverty

Poverty seemed to be the big issue that need to be addressed. Now that we have good leaders (transparency) to support Filipino people in their everyday routine, it is evident that they are capable of uplifting the lives of the poor especially those who are already living in hunger.

Poverty is depriving things that are essential to human life. This includes, but not limited to, food, clothing, shelter and safe drinking water. It can also refer to equality in terms of knowledge, privilege of having something and gaining respect. The definition of poverty is too broad that it requires a lot of information, understanding and experiences. It caters almost all of the concerns a country would seem to engage with.

In view of poverty mitigation, some of the items that need to be contained are as follows:

  1. Generation of competitive and satisfying jobs.
  2. Revenue cash inflow
  3. Concrete poverty alleviation programs
  4. Sustain housing programs, business funds and governmental benefits
  5. Support to Filipino experts (professional, artist, scientist and the like)

If abovementioned items are present, then poverty shall be alleviated. There will be no Energy Crisis, Insurgency and Secession Movements and Transnational Crimes and Syndicates. These global issues addressed on Poverty alleviation.

    Yes, these issues are not just relating to the Philippines, but to alot of places around the world. If all of the film stars and musicians, and rich people in the world were to only give 1 million each of their many millions of dollars money, it would feed the entire rest of the world, probably for many years to come. It is just that we are living in a world of great divide, a small amount who are greedy with many who are starving and finding it hard to survive, based on bad politics, belief systems and banking institutions. This is the world that puts money first before anything else.
