Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, June 6) — President Ferdinand Marcos Jr. has assured the Filipino-Chinese business community that the “healthy relationship” between them and the Philippine government would continue as his administration seeks to strengthen partnerships with the private sector.

Marcos on Wednesday recognized the Federation of Filipino-Chinese Chambers of Commerce and Industry, Inc.’s (FFCCCII) role in the development of the local economy.

“Partnerships with the private sector have been actively pursued and nurtured, in recognition of this essential role that you play in our development,” he said during the oath-taking rites in Malacañang for FFCCCII’s new set of officers.

“As in every mutually beneficial partnership, the Federation will rest assured that this Administration will continue to support this healthy relationship,” the president added.

Marcos said the current administration would continue to push for measures designed to enhance the business climate and further facilitate the ease of doing business through digitalization.

In December, the National Economic and Development Authority said the Marcos administration was targeting to involve private players in more infrastructure projects this year.

Under public-private partnerships, projects or services are funded, constructed, and operated through a partnership between the government and the private sector.
