MANILA — President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. has left for Davos, Switzerland to attend the World Economic Forum (WEF) where he will promote support for his administration’s proposed implementation this year of the Sovereign Wealth Fund (SWF).

Marcos said he will highlight the Philippines’ economic gains and bring home more investment pledges.

The President will be in Davos from January 15 to 20, 2023.

“We will highlight the steps the Philippines is taking to mend the fissures of such fragmentation, especially in our country but certainly in partnership with our friends, allies, and partners around the world,” Marcos said in his speech.

Marcos added that he will promote how to solve the constant increase in food prices, the effect of the ongoing war between Russia and Ukraine, and the constant threat of climate change.

“I will draw attention to our efforts at building resilient infrastructure that bolsters our efforts to reinforce robust and resilient supply chains, ensure food security including its critical interlinkages with health and nutrition, while furthering climate-friendly, clean and green energy to power the Philippine economy,” the President said.
