On the SWS National Mobile Phone Survey regarding the Quality of Life of Filipinos


A Social Weather Stations (SWS) National Mobile Phone Survey which showed 36% of adult Filipinos expecting their quality of life to worsen in the next 12 months is certainly an issue that concerns the Administration.

The Palace acknowledges that the COVID-19 pandemic and the quarantine restrictions have adversely affected the socioeconomic conditions of our people for the respondents of the survey to have this opinion. It is for this reason government economists have prepared a whole-of-society program in our recovery plan called Recharge PH to mitigate its impact.

Ingat buhay para sa hanapbuhay is our current direction with the gradual opening of industries, such as the resumption of our Build, Build, Build program, including the build up of the country’s health system capacity and preparing for new normal through digital transformation, we hope to revitalize the economy and stimulate growth for the betterment of the lives of our people.
