Duterte, who serves as concurrent education secretary, made the first assessment at the grand opening of Toyota Motors’ service center in his hometown of Davao City.

“The national government is pushing aggressively for measures that could keep our economy afloat with the feared effects of the pandemic and the challenges expected to hit our global economy,” she said.

The Vice President stressed that the country needs strong support from the business sector to enable it to recover from the economic slump caused by Covid-19.

“With strong support from the business sector, we are confident that we can sustain our economy, provide our people with jobs and meet their basic needs, and pursue the projects and programs necessary to build a strong nation,” she said.

Duterte added that the Philippines will survive “if we continue to strengthen our local economy” with the support of the business community.

Apart from the business sector, she mentioned the government’s innovative ways to meet the needs of the people and put in place pandemic-proof mechanisms.

Duterte thanked Toyota Dealers Association President Jose Lim III for “demonstrating his impressive business acumen, foresight, leadership and bravery – given the crippling effects of the pandemic on businesses and establishments.”

Currently, Toyota has two dealerships and two service centers in Davao City.

“It’s very reassuring to see companies like Toyota continue to thrive even in the midst of a climate that could potentially harm or put businesses at risk,” she said.
