Aguinaldo State Dining Room, Malacañang
December 5, 2016
President Rodrigo Roa Duterte presided over the 9th Cabinet Meeting held at the Aguinaldo State Dining Room of Malacañang.
At the beginning of the meeting, the President showed his Cabinet members printed documents of the profiles of suspected illegal drug users and pushers in the country, including the police, military, barangay officers, and local government units (LGUs), among others.
President Duterte also told the Cabinet his plans to continue the administration’s war against illegal drugs until the last drug user and pusher is off the streets. “I promised the Filipino people to free this country of drugs,” he said.
The other agenda in the meeting included a discussion on the results of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) 2016 Economic Leaders’ Meeting in Lima, Peru last November and the substantive preparations for the Philippines’ hosting of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Summit in 2017.
