Palace hopes for better quality of life, improved economy in 2020
MANILA, Philippines — Malacañang on New Year’s Eve expresses its hope for a better quality of life for Filipinos and an improved economy for the Philippines.
In his New Year message, presidential spokesperson Salvador Panelo said that just like all other nations, the government looks forward to a better quality of life for the people and an improved economy for the country in the coming year.
“We are no exception,” Panelo said, as he relayed President Duterte’s wish for “Filipinos all over the globe (to have) a healthy, joyous and prosperous New Year.”
“We feel it in our bones that there will be more productive and progressive changes to come as this administration led by this strong willed maverick and incorruptible President charts the destiny of this nation beyond our wildest dreams,” he said.
Panelo said it is the dream of the President that “even as we learn from the lessons of the past, and draw inspirations from the changes that lifted us, we resolve to help one another in building a nation living in comfort, in peace and in progress.”
He also expressed hope “the remaining days of the holidays be spent in energizing and strengthening our physical and mental well-being as we face the challenges that await us.”
