The Maharlika Investment Fund (MIF) bill has been sent to Malacañang for President Ferdinand Marcos Jr.’s signature, according to a spokesperson from the Palace.

Presidential Communications Secretary Cheloy Garafil confirmed the receipt of the Maharlika bill by the Office of the Deputy Executive Secretary for Legal Affairs (ODESLA).

The President has expressed his intention to sign the controversial measure promptly upon receiving it.

However, President Marcos has also stated that he will carefully review the modifications made to the bill during its approval in Congress.

He emphasized the importance of the bill being independent of the government in order to achieve success.

In a June interview, the President acknowledged the passage of the bill in both the House and the Senate and assured that all the changes would be thoroughly examined.
