To Okezone, Ramos presents the solutions that can be done by the Southeast Asian region to address environmental issues and peace of the issues that bind in Southeast Asia. The following advanced special interview with Fidel Ramos recently:
What solution do you expect to overcome the environmental damage?
Well, in the Philippines we have a modest proposal for the origin of Tuvalu. We apply the “3-R”, ie reducing consumption (reduce), waste recycling (recycle), and then recycle what can be re-used for the welfare of the people (reuse).
What do you think CAPDI conference is able to provide the best solution for a lot of conflict in the region, especially Southeast Asia?
Yes, I’ve thought so too when I first started working at the age of 22 years. I used to follow a program called Peace and Development Phillipines. Now, I have an ex, ex-President.
Used but not so the rest of the former but still can be used. I am still here working for peace and development. I set up a foundation in the Philippines RPDF (Ramos Peace and Development Foundation) to develop peace and development.
What activities are done by RPDF?
In RPDF we invite a lot of people, especially young people like you, for spreading the message that we are all human beings as much as six billion people will not survive long in a very small planet called Earth.
