From Presidential Spokesperson Ernie Abella – On Philippine peso emerging as Asia’s best currency

The sustained strength of the Philippine peso mirrors the high business and investor confidence in the decisive leadership of President Rodrigo Roa Duterte.

Under the PRRD administration it is a doctrine that an economy thrives when there is peace and order. Pursuing that tack has resulted in robust economic growth, and to sustain it we are launching the biggest infrastructure program in Philippine history; big-ticket projects, such as roads and bridges, mass urban transport system, alternative green city solutions, are among key investments intended to move the country closer to the promise of “a comfortable life for all”.

The Philippine economic future indeed looks very promising and we enjoin our people to continuously support the Administration as we together build a nation worthy of all Filipinos.
