The Mindset of an Entrepreneur
I have always believed that the Filipinos are good people. Despite the cynicism of some and our own penchant for “self-flagellation,”, the Filipino people have demonstrated that they have the passion and the will to do what is good for the country. We are a nation of patriots.
Clean Manila Bay a Duterte Legacy
The rehabilitation of Manila Bay is one major legacy that President Duterte can proudly leave to the nation. It is a gargantuan task but I believe the government can do it.
No Philippine president has succeeded in cleaning up Manila Bay, but Mr. Duterte can rely on his high trust rating to finish the job, just as he successfully implemented the rehabilitation of Boracay Island.
Capital Market Set to Rebound
I believe the strong performance of the Philippine Stock Exchange (PSE) in the first month of the year presents a good opportunity for companies and individuals to raise funds. Hopefully, such improvement in the equities market in 2019 will also spread to the capital market and enable our companies to continue their expansion and bolster economic growth.
