Sen. Marcos pushes for government-private sector partnership

Bersyon sa Filipino.

Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” R. Marcos Jr. has vowed to promote a strong partnership between the government and the private sector as a strategy for economic growth.

In a dialogue with businessmen in Nueva Ecija last Monday, Marcos said it’s still the economy that needs primary attention as poverty and hunger can only be eradicated if the economy is robust.

“Ang problema ng ating mga kababayan ngayon ay nakadikit sa sikmura kaya ang dapat natin intindihin ay ang ekonomiya. Palagay ko, walang magagawa ang pamahalaan kung hindi kasama ang ating mga negosyante, professional, bangkero, traders, at lahat ng nasa pribadong sektor,” he said.

Marcos, Vice Presidential candidate in the 2016 Elections, said the government will always fail to achieve its macro-economic goals without the cooperation and participation of the private sector.

He explained that a strong collaboration of the government and the business sector will generate employment and, at the same time, boost business growth where the government handles the trainings of laborers and provide personnel equipped with the required skills to industries, factories, shops and other establishments.

“Lagi kong ipinapaalala sa aking mga kasamahan sa gobyerno na 90 percent ng trabaho ay nasa private sector pero malaki ang gagampanan ng ating pamahalaan para ihanda ang ating mga manggagawa para makapasok sa private sector,” he said.

“Sa ngayon ay nakakalungkot na makita na imbes na nagsasama at nagkakaroon ng synergy sa trabaho ng pamahalaan at ng private sector ay parang nagdedebate pa, parang naglalaban pa, parang hinihila ang ekonomiya sa maraming ibat-ibang direksiyon,” Marcos concluded.
