Presidential aspirant and Senator Bong Go on Thursday unveiled his economic platform before the country’s business leaders, emphasizing the importance of continuing the programs of the Duterte administration, particularly those that promote economic growth and improve the welfare of Filipinos.
The senator presented his campaign platform, including his plans related in business and the economy, in front of members of the Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry (PCCI), the largest business organization in the country, during PCCI’s Presidentiables’ Forum.
In his opening statement, Go underscored his battle cry of “Serbisyong may tapang at malasakit.”
He vowed to continue to enforce, implement, and improve the current Administration’s programs that include among others the Pondo sa Pagbabago at Pag-asenso (P3) microfinancing scheme program that provided assistance to micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs), especially those that were greatly affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.
Go said his administration will aim for recovery by 2022 by providing assistance to MSMEs by giving access to credit and financial assistance to distressed businesses, and mandating government financial institutions to expand their credit programs to assist affected MSMEs in meeting their liquidity needs.
He also said he believes that the Build Build Build program should be continued to fuel economic recovery, and plans to continue partnering with the private sector, improve tax collections, and exercise prudent fiscal management to ensure sustainability of the program.
In closing, Go assured the business sector that sustaining the gains of the Duterte administration, which he articulated as one with a proven track record of competence and compassionate service, will be the way to go to sustain the nation’s gains.
