Last June 10, as the Presidential Adviser for Entrepreneurship, I was tasked to represent President Rodrigo Duterte in the celebration of the Filipino-Chinese Friendship Day and the Philippine Independence Day of the Federation of Filipino-Chinese Chamber of Commerce and Industry (FFCCCII), headed by a long-time Go Negosyo advocate, Dr. Henry Lim Bon Liong of SL Agritech Corporation.

It was a full-house event that catered to more than 1,500 participants.

During my speech, I shared the important values of peace and prosperity. These are two words that are very important, especially now that the last three years in the term of our president have begun. When he was elected president, he was the mayor of Davao City, considered an underdog in the elections. But he showed the Filipino people what kind of leader can change their lives and his promise has been partly fulfilled in the past three years. With only three years left under his leadership, we must now accelerate.
