Senator Recto said the Philippines has been recognized as the fourth largest shipbuilder in the world. “If other nations find our ships exceptional, then we should, too.”

He said local shipbuilders can build the “country’s humanitarian fleet.”

“We need a hospital ship. Kahit maliit lang. Or two all-purpose mercy ships which can be used as floating headquarters when all land structures have been destroyed. We are an archipelago. And when there’s a typhoon and the roads are destroyed, the only way to reach the victims is by sea,” he said.
