MANILA, Philippines — President Duterte has assured investors and donors that their money is safe in the Philippines, citing his crackdown on corruption and economic reforms toward a viable business environment.
Duterte said good governance has made it possible for his administration to create an enabling environment that allows businesses and investments to prosper.
“Who wants investments? Who wants it? My country needs it. Now the investors, be it a Japanese, a Chinese, the first thing is: is our money safe? Well in my term, it is safe,” Duterte said during the 25th Nikkei Future of Asia Conference last Friday in Tokyo.
