The Private Sector Advisory Council (PSAC) lauded President Ferdinand Marcos Jr.’s trip to the United States (US), in a statement released on Monday (September 26), saying that it was a “resounding success” as he was able to bring home new investments to boost the country’s economy.

PSAC’s head, Aboitiz Equity Ventures, Inc. Chief Executive Officer Sabin M. Aboitiz, called President Marcos a “true statesman” for all the investments he was able to bag in the US.

“He represented our country with pride, diplomacy, professionalism, and an honest intention to strengthen our partnership with the US and secure their commitment to transforming the lives of all Filipinos by directly investing in our economy,” Aboitiz said.

“He came here on a mission for our people — we all did — and that mission was accomplished. We felt the love from the Americans here, and Filipinos will feel it at home and around the world,” he added.

Members from the PSAC joined Marcos at the New York Stock Exchange where he addressed global investors and traders, and when he met with various senior executives from different American firms and companies during the Philippine Economic Briefing.

“Bouncing back from the pandemic, the Philippine economy has seen robust growth since last year and has returned to its path toward upper middle-income country status, achievable, we believe, within the next few years,” Marcos said at the New York Stock Exchange.

The delegation from the PSAC that joined Marcos in the US was composed of International Container Terminal Services Inc. Chairman and President Enrique Razon, Metro Pacific Corp. Chairman and President Manuel V. Pangilinan, San Miguel Crop. Chairman, President and CEO Ramon Ang, Ayala Crop. Chairman Jaime Augusto Zobel de Ayala, JG Summit Holdings Inc. President and CEO Lance Gokongwei, Magsaysay Group President and CEO Doris Ho, and SM Prime Holdings Director Hans Sy.
