President Duterte is urging the public and the private sector to “invest in our people and our country” as well as to invest in “safer and responsive infrastructure.”
Duterte made his call during the inauguration of the new Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) Head Office Building in Pasig City on Monday.
With several weeks left in office, the President also expressed his hopes that the momentum gained by the agency by improving its facilities will motivate other government offices and institutions to invest in similar undertakings.
“In the coming days, we shall see just how helpful this project is in helping the agency achieve its goals,” Duterte said.
“Expect that this building complex will encourage both officials and employees to continue working hard for a sustainable, resilient, dynamic and most of all people-centered MMDA,” he added.
