United States Ambassador to the Philippines Sung Kim said that the Philippines has been doing well economically because of the country’s tremendous potential.
In an interview on ABS-CBN News Channel ANC’s Early Edition program, Kim said that the Philippines ‘can do so much better,’ citing its young population, high English fluency, and rich natural resources as the key factors that will help boost economical growth.
Kim also urged US companies to consider looking into business opportunities in the Philippines now that the current administration takes infrastructure building as one of its priorities. Likewise, Philippine businesses should also start investing on business ventures in the US.
According to Kim, this will help in strengthening ties between the Philippines and the US through economic partnerships.
“I hope that the United States will be a key partner as the Philippine economy continues to grow, the ambassador mentioned.
“The Philippine administration is focused on infrastructure building and I think it’s an important initiative. I hope that these big projects get started soon,” he added.
