Meanwhile, Minister and Consul General Indhira C. Bañares highlighted the implementation of the Corporate Recovery and Tax Incentives for Enterprises (CREATE) Act; unrestricted movement of critical products and people (especially during the pandemic); highly talented and dedicated Filipino workers; the availability of economic and industrial zones in key locations, including New Clark City; and, infrastructure development as among the major advantages of investing in the Philippines.
