Finance Secretary Carlos Dominguez III

 

In line with the celebration of the 81st Dia de la Ciudad de Zamboanga, members of the Ateneo de Zamboanga University welcomed Department of Finance Secretary Carlos Dominguez III in a simple reception at the Carlos Dominguez Conference Hall.

 

University President Fr Karel San Juan SJ, gave a brief introduction on Dominguez relating how his family has helped AdZU through professorial chairs and scholarships. The Carlos Dominguez Conference Hall (CDCH) was named after his father, a graduate of AdZU High School Class of 1938.

 

In his talk, Sec Dominguez shares his family’s strong relationship with the Jesuits and related to the audience how Jesuit Education is infused in their lives. He spoke about visiting AdZU as a homecoming for him. Addressing Fr Karel, he expressed, in behalf of his family, that funds will be made available for the improvement of the CDCH should there be a need for it.

 

The Finance Secretary also talked the audience through the daily functions of his department. He shared how his office works to keep government projects running through proper fund allocation while making sure that the Philippine economy is continually growing. He emphasized the importance of transparency in the country’s Financial System further citing some benefits of the recently implemented Tax Reforms. In addition, Dominguez made time to answer some questions raised by members of the community.

 

Before ending his talk, he presented Fr President Karel San Juan and former AdZU President Fr William H Kreutz with a gift—a published biography of his mother entitled Born in Jolo, Virginia Garcia Dominguez, the unfinished saga of Mindanao. In return, Fr Karel presented to him gifts from the Ateneo—a collection of film, literary pieces produced and written by Jesuits and a portrait of his father, the late Carlos Dominguez.


Fr Karel again expressed his gratitude (through a post) to the Secretary for sharing his appreciation of (his) Ateneo/Jesuit values and education, and his passion to make the country better, Pro Deo et Patria.

 

Born in Zamboanga City, Sec Dominguez was this year’s guest of honor and keynote speaker of the Dia de la Ciudad de Zamboanga celebration.

 

The Dia de la Ciudad de Zamboanga is a month-long celebration with activities commemorating the city’s charter anniversary. The day is a special non-working holiday in Zamboanga City.
