Statement

On the Bayanihan II


We confirm that President Rodrigo Roa Duterte signed into law the Bayanihan II or the Bayanihan to Recover As One Act.

We thank the leaders of both Houses of Congress for their display of statesmanship by their swift passage of this important piece of legislation.

We consider the Bayanihan II crucial in our efforts to gradually re-open the economy, support businesses and revitalize growth as we make our country resilient to COVID-19 by strengthening our health sector, particularly our healthcare capacity and pandemic response.
