PBBM included in Time's 100 most influential people of 2024
by Mary Antalan18 April 2024

President Ferdinand 'Bongbong' Marcos Jr. is named among Time Magazine's 100 Most Influential People in 2024.

In Time Magazine's latest item issued on Wednesday, Charlie Campbell, the author, recognized Marcos's efforts in bringing technocrats back into government, steadied the post-­pandemic economy, and elevated the Philippines on the world stage.

He was also recognized for standing steadfastly against the Chinese in the disputed South China Sea or West Philippine Sea and bolstering "his nation’s alliance with the U.S. in the face of “rising tensions in our region and the world."

"Many problems persist, including extra­judicial killings and journalists routinely attacked. But by trying to repair his family name, Bongbong may reshape his country too," Campbell furthered.
