I. Food sufficiency
A. Green Revolution
Production of rice was increased
through promoting the cultivation of IR-8 hybrid rice.
In 1968 the Philippines became self-sufficient in rice,
the first time in history since the American period.
It also exported rice worth US$7 million.

B. Blue Revolution
Marine species like prawn, mullet, milkfish,
and golden tilapia were being produced
and distributed to farmers at a minimum cost.
Today, milkfish and prawns contribute
substantially to foreign exchange income.

C. Liberalized Credit
More than one thousand rural banks
spread all over the country
resulting to the accessibility of credit
to finance purchase of agricultural inputs,
hired labor, and harvesting expenses
at very low interest rate.
During 1981-1985, credit was available
without interest and collateral arrangements.
Some of the credit programs were the ff:

1. Biyayang Dagat (credit support for fishermen)
2. Bakahang Barangay –supported fattening
of 40,000 head of cattle in farmer backyards
3. Masaganang Maisan, Maisagana,
and Expanded Yellow Corn Program
–supported 1.4 Million farmers
through P4.7 Billion loans from 1975-1985
4. Gulayan sa Kalusugan and Pagkain ng Bayan Programs
–provided grants and loans of P12.4 Million
to encourage backyard and communal production
of vegetables and improve nutrition of Filipino households
5. Kilusang Kabuhayan at Kaunlaran (KKK)—
supported 25,000 entrepreneurial projects
through P1.8 Billion and helping 500,000 beneficiaries

D. Decontrol Program
Price control polices were implemented on rice and corn
to provide greater incentive to farmers to produce more.
Deregulation of trading in commodities like sugar
and coconut and agricultural inputs like fertilizer
were done for more efficient marketing and trading arrangements.

II. Education Reform
Access to free education widened during the Marcos Administration.
The biggest portion of the budget
was allotted for Educational Programs (P58.7 Billion in 20 years).

The literacy rate climbed
from 72% in 1965 to 93% in 1985
and almost 100% in Metro Manila on the same year.

III. Agrarian Reform
Tenant’s Emancipation Act of 1972
or PD 27 was implemented without bloodshed.
This was the first Land Reform Code our country.
Since it was implemented until December 1985,
1.2 million farmers benefited,
either they became the owner or leaseholder
in more than 1.3 million hectares of rice and corn lands.

IV. Primary Health Care
The Primary Health Care (PHC) Program made medical care
accessible to millions of Filipinos in the remotest barrios of the country.
This program was even awarded by United Nations
as the most effective and most responsive health program among the third world countries.
With PHC life expectancy increased from 53.7 years in 1965 to 65 years in 1985.
Infant mortality rate also declined from 73 deaths per 1,000 live births in 1965 to 58 in 1984.

V. Housing for the masses
Bagong Lipunan Improvement of Sites and Services (BLISS)
Housing project had expanded the government’s housing program
for the low-income group.

Massive slum upgrading projects have improved
to 14,000 lots in 1985 from 2,500 in 1976.
The Tondo foreshore, for instance,
is one of the biggest and most miserable slum colonies in Asia
was transformed into a decent community.

A total of 230,000 housing units were constructed from 1975-1985.
The laws on socialized housing were conceptualized
by President Marcos through a series of legal issuances
from the funding, the lending, mortgaging and to the collection of the loans.
These are governed by the Home Mutual Development Fund (Pag-Ibig Fund),
the Housing and Land Use Regulatory Board (HLURB)
and the National Home Mortgage Finance which remain intact up to the present

VI. Energy Self-Reliance
Indigenous energy sources were developed like hydro, geothermal,
dendrothermal, coal, biogas and biomass.

The country became the first in Asia
to use dendrothermal and in five years
we became number two, next to US, in geothermal utilization.
The extensive energy resource research and exploration
and development resulted to reduction of oil imports from 100% in 1965 to 40% in 1985
and in the same year, more than 1,400 towns and cities were fully energized.

VII. Export Development
During 1985 textile and textile products like garments and embroideries,
furniture and rattan products, marine products like prawns and milkfish,
raw silk, shoes, dehydrated and fresh fruits
were exported aside from the traditional export products like coconut,
sugar, logs, lumber and veneer.
The maritime industry was also dominated
by Filipinos wherein 50,000 seamen
were employed by various world shipping companies.

VIII. Labor Reform
The Labor code was promulgated which expanded
the concerns of the Magna Carta of Labor
to extend greater protection to labor,
promote employment, and human resource development.

The minimum wages of the workers were boosted
through the guaranteed 13th month pay and cost of living allowances.
Employment potentials of Filipinos were enhanced through skills training.
During that time, there were 896,000 out-of-school youths
and unemployed graduated from various training centers all over the country.

IX. Unprecedented Infrastructure Growth
The country’s road network had improved from 55,778 kilometers in 1965
to 77,950 in five years (1970),
and eventually reached 161,000 kilometers in 1985.
Construction of irrigation facilities was also done
that made 1.5 million hectares of land irrigated
and increased the farmer’s harvest and income.

In addition, nationwide telecommunication systems—
telephone systems, telex exchange too centers,
and interprovincial toll stations were also built.

X. Political Reform
The structure of government established by President Marcos
remains substantially the same except the change of name,
inclusive of superficial features in laws,
to give a semblance of change from that of President Marcos regime.

The only significant department that was abolished
after the departure of President Marcos was
the Department of Ministry of Human Settlements under Imelda Romualdez Marcos.
It was dismantled but the functions were distributed to different offices.

XII. Fiscal Reform
Government finances were stabilized
by higher revenue collections
and loans from treasury bonds,
foreign lending institutions and foreign governments.

XI. Peace and Order
In 1966, more than 100 important smugglers were arrested;
in three years 1966-68 they arrested a total of 5,000.
Military men involved in smuggling were forced to retire.
Peace and order significantly improved in most provinces
however situations in Manila and some provinces continued to deteriorate
until the imposition of martial law in 1972.
What ever happened to these?
Did the suceeding administration just forego these just because it had Marcos’ signature?
These,though made in the 1970's address problems that we are facing today.
Had these not been abolished and maintained for the last 30 or so years, things may be so much different.
And the list goes on and on and on... Although Marcos was branded as dictator, corrupt, human rights violator still truth shall prevail..

Hi! My close friend Ben Lesser is 18 years old from Bethesda and is of European/Filipino descent. He has been diagnosed with leukemia and is seeking a bone marrow or peripheral blood stem cells donor. The best chance of a bone marrow match is someone of similar ethnicity (part Filipino part European) so the Bethesda, Maryland community is working to share this generally, but also specifically with Filipino-related networks. If you could share the page Find Ben's Match #bethematch ( @findbensmatch ) to your page, that would be great. Anyone between the ages of 18-44 can register for free (it's just a cheek swab!) at join.bethematch.org/diversematch or by texting diversematch to 61474. Thank you!
