President Rodrigo Roa Duterte SONA

The speech is written in English, which the President is comfortable with, and if read straight should take approximately 50 minutes; given there will be pauses for applause and off-the-cuff remarks, the speech may take about an hour and thirty minutes.

The President's Report to the People will be available online shortly after the President has spoken.

According to the Presidential Spokesperson Ernesto Abella, as a whole, SONA 2017 will be frank and realistic but hopeful.

The State of the Nation Address 2017 will be broadcast live by ABS-CBN, GMA7, and TV5 via free local TV but for those who don't have access to the television or for Filipinos who are living abroad, the SONA can also be viewed through PTV's Online Livestream below:

The Duterte Administration - through the leadership of PCOO Secretary Martin Andanar - saw the modernization of the People's Television Network (PTV). In January 2017, PTV and Japan-based technology company NEC signed a landmark agreement for the acquisition of new digital transmitters and other facilities to begin the network's transition to digital terrestrial television. Alongside the equipment upgrade, PTV also became more active in creating content for the online platform, making sure that Filipino netizens are well-informed about the activities and projects of the government.
