Ipinagmalaki ni Pangulong Ferdinand R. Marcos Jr. sa 2023 Asia Summit sa Singapore, ang mga ipinatupad na reporma ng pamahalaan, para tuluyang transformation ng ekonomiya ng Pilipinas.
“Our government actively engages in public private partnerships. Our successful PPP projects demonstrate our commitment to provide services to our public while delivering goods and returns to our investors. We open our doors to international developers and construction companies who wish to take part in the infrastructure development of our country.” —Pangulong Marcos.
Kabilang dito ang pagsusulong ng digitalization at pagpapa-igting ng internet connectivity, na malaki ang maitutulong sa e-commerce at ease of doing business.
“The Philippines has faced its share of challenges as with any country. But we emerge from them stronger and more resolute. Our nation’s resilience and ability to adapt are not just stories, they are lessons that we bring to the table. Lessons that we share with partners who are invested in our shared future.” —Pangulong Marcos.
Kasabay na rin nito ang pag-lawak pa ng paggamit ng digital services sa Pilipinas.
Katunayan aniya, lumabas sa 2023 global digital reports na ang mga pilipino ang isa sa pinakamarami sa gumagamit ng internet at social media.
“Another strength of the Philippines is our educated and English-speaking workforce that has propelled us onto the global stage, especially in the area of business processing, and outsourcing.” —Pangulong Marcos.
Ito aniya ang nagpapalago ng e-commerce sa bansa.
“Meanwhile, to improve on our capacities as a manufacturing hub, we are continuously investing on vocational and technical enhancement and education to ensure that our people remain globally competitive.” —Pangulong Marcos.
Kasabay nito, hinikayat ng pangulo ang mga negosyante sa Singapore na mamuhunan sa Pilipinas sa iba’t ibang industriya.
“To those who are looking to invest in the Philippines, we offer incentives, tax breaks, and robust legal frameworks that safeguard the interests of foreign investors. Intellectual property rights are protected, ensuring that innovation flourishes within our borders.” —Pangulong Marcos.
Halimbawa sa renewable energy lalo pa’t nabago na ang batas para rito dahil pinapayagan na ang 100% foreign ownership sa renewable energy business.
“The Philippines is embracing renewable energy, welcoming 100% foreign ownership of renewable energy projects. To clarify that, there is a new law, Public Service Act, it allows now which was not really allowed before, allows now fully 100% foreign ownership when it comes to renewable energy.” —Pangulong Marcos.| ulat ni Racquel Bayan
