The Philippine economy for this new year 2022 is rosy and promising or optimistic despite of the new COVID-19 variant omicron lingering according to GoNegosyo founder and Presidential Adviser For Entrepreneurship Joey Concepcion.
He is optimistic for the economy and said he is “bullish” because of the confidence he has for the rollout of vaccines and the ample supply of it and believe on the decision of the Metro Manila mayors to limit the mobility of the unvaccinated to encourage them to be vaccinated.
Moreover, his confidence to the vaccines according to him, will help thrive again the business sector of the Philippine and the economy and help the government collect taxes again.
He says : “What I can assure you, that I think I am extremely bullish, I am very bullish that 2022 will be definitely a much better year than 2021, why? We have the vaccines; it’s now here in our country,”… “We want to end this pandemic this year in 2022, so that at least your entrepreneurs and our business can thrive to help the government pay their taxes and the government can continue to fund your vaccines,”… “So we will have to have a vibrant economy to be able to afford buying these vaccines,”
“Now that the country has ample supply of Covid-19 vaccines, the challenge is to fight vaccine hesitation and encourage those unvaccinated to get their immunity against the virus, the presidential adviser added. He said the recent decision of Metro Manila mayors to limit the mobility of unvaccinated individuals to essential activities will help in encouraging them to get their Covid-19 shots. He added that the government should also speed up inoculation for booster shot.” (Philippine News Agency)
