MANILA, Philippines – Nakabalik na ng Pilipinas si Pangulong Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr., araw ng Sabado, Enero 22 matapos dumalo sa World Economic Forum sa Davos, Switzerland.

“I am pleased with the progress we have made during our crucial participation in the World Economic Forum (WEF), a truly global multi-stakeholder platform,” sa kanyang naging talumpati sa Villamor Air Base sa Pasay City.

Sinabi ng Chief Executive na ang byahe ay nagbunga ng ‘beneficial outcomes’ na may kinalaman sa “bagong kalakalan at investment opportunities, key partnerships para suportahan ang development program, mas maayos na pagpapahalaga sa mga Filipino workers at professionals, at ang pangako na itaas ang pagtutulungan sa iba’t ibang bansa sa buong mundo.

“Our WEF engagement has enabled the many leaders and experts in government, business, civil organizations, and the academe that were in attendance to receive the good news that the Philippines is leading economic recovery and performance not only in the Asia-Pacific but also in the whole world,” ang wika ng Pangulo.

“We shared our insight and experience in being resilient, hardworking people – uniting in adversity and looking out for each other in [times of] crisis. And for this, I thank you,” dagdag na pahayag ng Pangulo.

Ibinahagi rin ng Pangulo ang “work across trade and investment, monetary and fiscal policies, food and energy security, climate action, structural reforms, digitalization, public-private partnerships, health and nutrition, education, at iba pang social services” ng bansa.

“I highlighted this administration’s policies, including the Philippine Development Plan, the 8-Point Socioeconomic Agenda, and various other policies and legislation that spotlight the economic reforms of the Philippines that have led to our sustained growth, even post COVID-19 and amidst the current global economic downturn,” aniya pa rin.

Tinalakay din niya ang budget, estratehiya, polisiya, programa at mga proyekto para sa climate-resilient infrastructure at “Build, Better, More,” ng administrasyon at maging ang active policies tungo sa public-private partnerships at iba pang uri ng kolaborasyon sa infrastructure, “all this work is toward the fulfillment of a resilient, inclusive, and sustainable infrastructure ecosystem for the Philippines.”

Ginamit din niya ang oportunidad “to consult with our friends and partners in Davos on the sovereign wealth fund as a means for us to diversify our income sources, and to generate various welfare effects for the Filipino people.”

“And that discussion about the sovereign wealth fund, the Maharlika Fund, was an interactive one wherein not only did we present our ideas on what the fund should look like, but we asked them [what they thought] would be most advantageous for the Philippines so as to allow the potential investments that you are thinking about bringing into the Philippines and how the fund would be best designed to service that investment,” aniya pa rin.

Nakipagpulong din siya kay WEF founder and chairman emeritus Klaus Schwab para pag-usapan ang “partnerships at collaboration” para tulungan ang Pilipinas na panatilihin ang “equitable and inclusive growth” at magbigay ng magandang kalidad ng buhay para sa mga Filipino.

Nakipag-usap din si Pangulong Marcos sa World Trade Organization Director-General Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, World Bank Managing Director for Operations Axel Van Trotsenburg, International Monetary Fund Managing Director Kristalina Georgieva, and former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair para i-align at napagkasunduan na itulak para sa common priorities at suporta sa multilateral trading system na mapakikinabangan ng lahat.

“The process that we undertook really in Davos was not simply to highlight the new situation, the new economic situation, the new policies, and the new concepts that we are promoting in the Philippines today, but also to learn from the world leaders and the world economic leaders what part the Philippines can play in this fragmented world,” anito.

“That was the main theme in this entire forum, how do we bring back cooperation in a fragmented world, and we are seen to play a part in that, especially as a member state of ASEAN and as a leading economy in Asia,” dagdag na pahayag nito.

Ang business meetings ay nagbigay ng pangako para sa bagong investments sa economic sectors, kabilang na ang mining at processing, digital solutions, logistics, telecommunications, at renewable fuels.

“We now will be working to consolidate and develop these contacts and discussions that we have begun. The measure of success will be how much of this we can bring to fruition. That process has begun, and we will continue until we see the final results of these endeavors,” ayon sa Pangulo. Kris Jose
