MANILA — President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. on Wednesday led the opening of the new terminal building at the Clark International Airport in Pampanga which he said will help reduce the number of people passing through Manila.

“Ganitong-ganito ang ating kailangan. We need this, we need more, we have many plans for the airport in Manila, we have many plans for the airport surrounding Manila para naman dumami at mas madali ang pagpasok ng ating mga magiging bisita,” Marcos said in his speech.

He said, this is while waiting for the construction of the airport in Bulacan and Sangley Point in Cavite.

“Huwag nating pinipilit lahat kailangang dumaan ng Maynila. So direct na sa Bohol, direct sa — well sa Cebu marami na talagang direct, direct sa CDO, direct sa Davao na mayroon na rin,” the President said.

Marcos asserted that the Philippines is prepared to go above and beyond to attract investments, including by enacting changes to the way the government and industry conduct themselves.

“We are probably the most vibrant economy that is in Southeast Asia, and we understand the requirements and the needs of our potential investors, and we will do everything so that, that partnership becomes to the advantage of both the private sector, the public sector, to the people,” he said.

“We just opened a new terminal. It is state-of-the-art, and this is one of the things that we will continue to do in the future to bring you all to come and be partners with the Philippines to help the lives of our people, to help the Philippine economy,” he added. (ai/mtvn)
