Host: The Heritage Foundation. Jose de Venecia, Jr. – so recent and so long Speaker of the House of Representatives of The Philippines, that it’s still difficult not to call him Mr. Speaker JDV – has been a major player on The Philippines political scene for four decades. Seemingly everywhere at once during his two stints as Speaker, once in the 1990s and again from 2001-2008, he was the man to go to for getting things done. Join us as he reviews his career, his causes, and his vision for The Philippines.
