President Rodrigo Roa Duterte received several business executives in a courtesy call that included Ramon Ang (CEO of San Miguel Group of Companies), Beau Kuok (Kuok Group of Companies and Vice Chairman of Shangri-La Group of Companies), and other business groups based in Singapore.
The President was accompanied by Trade and Industry (DTI) Secretary Ramon Lopez during the courtesy call.
In his speech, President Duterte mentioned that as an assurance to the investors who plan on investing in the Philippines, he promised a corrupt-free country. He also vowed that all public documents needed by the investors to comply with the country’s business requirements would be provided on time by the concerned government departments.
