NEW YORK CITY, United States — President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. on Friday (Saturday Manila time) said the ultimate goal of his economic agenda is to make sure that no Filipino goes hungry again.


Speaking before members of the Asia Society, Marcos said that while it is a “very simple aim,” it is not necessarily a simple problem to solve.

“I have been asked what is the absolute end result that we are hoping to achieve and it’s very simple for me: not one more hungry Filipino,” he said.

“It’s a very simple aim. It’s a very simple goal. But I dare say, it is not necessarily a simple problem to solve, and it requires a great deal of effort and thinking on the part of the public sector,” he added.

His goal, Marcos said, is possible to be realized if the public and private sectors would work together.

“We hope to leverage whatever it is that the government can do to maximize the effects of what development we are able to encourage and to the benefit of those who have come to help us, our partners, our investors, and of course to the benefit of the ordinary Filipino,” the President said.

“We have managed to engage our private sector partners to be part of this effort. And I do not think that we could manage to do this by ourselves in the public sector,” he added.
