Then we will look once again to you for your assistance, your partnership, and your continuing commitment to make the lives of ordinary Filipinos better,” dagdag na wika ng Pangulo.

Tinuran pa ng Pangulo na ipagpapatuloy din ng gobyerno na pakinggan ang mga concerns ng pribadong sektor at gawin ang lahat ng pagsisikap para i-improve ang business climate at tiyakin na magiging madali ang pagnenegosyo sa bansa.
“We are now exerting effort to provide and improve our tax administration and fiscal incentives system amongst others strategic interventions. We are also streamlining existing regulatory mechanism through expedited and integrated processes and digitalization of key government services,” ayon kay Pangulong Marcos.
