The Philippines is experiencing its Golden Age of Infrastructure, thanks in large part to the Duterte administration's massive "BUILD, BUILD, BUILD" program.
It is truly golden and unprecedented in our history, and we owe this buildup to the hard working and fiercely dedicated men and women who are in the frontlines.
And it is only but appropriate that we render our grateful appreciation and well-deserved salute to our work force.
Our human resource is indeed our most valuable asset and it is because of all of them that we can look forward to making full use of conveniences such as modern and technology-enhanced airports, seaports, rail lines, and road transport systems and equipment.
Without the daily toil of our workforce, our dream and aspiration of a robust and game-changing public transportation that enhances and ensure full connectivity and mobility, and a more comfortable life, will remain just that - a pipe dream.
But because we have a visionary, determined and caring government, led by President Rodrigo Roa Duterte, and relentless, untiring and most passionate Transportation Secretary Arthur Tugade, together with an amazing workforce of construction and engineering workers; drivers and conductors; station, port, terminal, toll personnel; administrative staff; medical team; security force and other frontliners, we are able to turn that dream into a reality.
To all of you, our utmost respect and gratitude.
