The Aquino administration is grateful for the vote of confidence from the public following the release of the latest Makati Business Club’s Executive Outlook survey.
During the regular press briefing in Malacanang on Monday, Presidential Spokesperson Edwin Lacierda said Malacanang welcomed the results of the survey by the Makati Business Club for the second semester of 2011 that was conducted from July 19 to August 2, this year.
Based on the survey, 64% of the MBC respondents acknowledged that the business environment has improved over the past year.
“A more overwhelming majority — 76% of the respondents — believe that the economy will perform even better over the next 12 months,” Lacierda quoted the survey.
Lacierda said “the MBC members likewise cited agencies tasked with enhancing the business environment, and it is worth mentioning that the performance of the Department of Health (DOH), a pillar of our social service agenda, has garnered their praise.”
“The MBC members’ optimism and positive outlook on the country reaffirm that the government’s efforts to level the playing field in all sectors and secure greater opportunity for inclusive growth are bearing fruit,” Lacierda said.
