For the first one month and nine days, we have already reached PHP414 billion,” he stated.

“We really credit a part of that to the strong efforts of the President to promote the Philippines,” he added.

The BOI has accredited PHP655.4 billion in investments in 2021 and an estimated PHP729 billion in 2022.

These firms have proven sturdy curiosity in manufacturing, the official stated.
