Secretary Emmanuel F. Pinol SECRETARY EMMANUEL F. PIÑOL, PhD
Chairperson, Mindanao Development Authority (MinDA)

Secretary Emmanuel "Manny" F. Piñol, Ph.D. is a seasoned print and broadcast journalist, a farmer, and a veteran local government chief executive.

He became the seventh Mindanao Development Authority Chairman after he was appointed by President Rodrigo Duterte on August 5, 2019. This is the second Cabinet position he held after serving as Secretary of Agriculture at the beginning of the Duterte administration.

He served as writer for former President Fidel V. Ramos in 1992, then forayed into public office as Mayor of M’lang, North Cotabato Province in 1995 and became Provincial Governor from 1998 to 2007. In 2010 he served as Vice Governor of the same province.

Secretary Piñol is known for his staunch advocacies to advance the agriculture sector. As Governor of Cotabato, he implemented a bottom-up agricultural planning for priority crops such as rubber, oil palm, banana and coconut which dramatically transformed the province from being one of the poorest provinces in 1998 to top 30 provinces with lowest poverty incidence in 2007.

During his stint as Agriculture Secretary, he set forth the Department of Agriculture's focus into enhancing agri modernization and improving productivity of the country's key agri commodities, amid challenges of ensuing extreme climatic conditions.

As MinDA Chairman, Secretary Piñol espouses PPP as key priorities to advance the Duterte administration's overall thrusts for Mindanao: Poverty reduction, Peace with equity and agricultural Productivity. He also serves as the President's “Point Man” for Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (BARMM), with roles to ensure meaningful and effective interfacing of national government and the BARMM.

Born on December 16, 1953 in M’lang, North Cotabao, Secretary Piñol finished his elementary and secondary education on top of his class. He completed his degree in Development Communication in 2006 from University of Southern Mindanao, Master’s Degree in Rural and Economic Development (2008), and conferred Ph.D. in Rural Development (2019) from the same university.
