The Mindset of an Entrepreneur
Tourism to Support Recovery
Finding the pivotal balance between containing the spread of Covid-19 and allowing more sectors such as travel and tourism to reopen is the key to recovery after the 9.5-percent gross domestic product slump in 2020.
Shift to MGCQ
Placing the entire nation under the least restrictive quarantine level should not be a cause for concern. The looser restrictions aim to encourage more people to go out and participate in increased economic activities. The laxer conditions do not, in any way, call for a lowering of one’s guard or the abandonment of health protocols to stop the spread of Covid-19.
Food Security Key to Taming Inflation
Food security is crucial to keeping prices stable and ensuring the inflation rate stays within target. While sufficiency through local production is an ideal and patriotic goal, we should keep our trade borders open to prepare for any emergency and ensure that our food stock is adequate to feed our population today and tomorrow.
