MANILA — Like a triumphant statesman, President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. did bring home the proverbial bacon, so to speak, after he has successfully secured close to $4 billion worth of investment pledges during his six-day working visit to the United States that will translate to more than 112,000 jobs for Filipinos.

On Thursday, September 29, the Palace said in a statement that PBBM was able to secure business agreements and commitments in the US with an estimated investment value of $3.9 billion and has a potential employment generation of 112,285 jobs.

Malacañang said the investments will come from various sectors, including Information Technology and Business Process Management (IT-BPM), data centers, and manufacturing. (ai/mtvn)
