With the Philippines’ serving as a host of the GEW, it marks another milestone for the country in pursuit of a sustained and progressive economic development. The event attests to the vibrancy of the entrepreneurial spirit among Filipinos.
With deep sense of pride and honor, I am pleased to know that the Philippines is now counted as among more than 130 countries that celebrate Global Entrepreneurship Week – the world’s largest celebration of entrepreneurship.
Indeed, entrepreneurs are the backbone of our economy which facilitates inclusive growth through large-scale employment opportunities, revenue generation, and investments promotion.
I believe that for the Philippines to continue its growth, we need more entrepreneurs – young and old, men and women, urban and rural, rich, middle class and poor. Through entrepreneurial innovation, dedication and hard-work, we are able to move the country forward towards prosperity.
I encourage you to take part in this momentous occasion on 17-23 November 2014 and let us make the whole world know that Filipinos are world-class entrepreneurs.
Again, congratulations and Mabuhay kayong Lahat!
Jejomar C. Binay
