JOBS creation and economic growth are the two major priorities of the vice presidential candidate and Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte, once she wins the position.

In a statement, Mayor Sara said the focus of the UniTeam tandem, with presidential candidate former Sen. Bongbong Marcos, is to provide better lives for the Filipinos by providing more jobs in the country.

“Nakatutok po tayo sa trabaho, at ‘yun din po ang gusto ni BBM. Maayos na edukasyon, dahil ‘yan po ang backbone ng magagandang trabaho at malalaking sweldo,” Duterte said during the pilot run of Sara All 2022 Metro Manila Virtual Caravan.

Mayor Sara is the chairperson of Lakas-CMD and Hugpong ng Pagbabago (HNP).

Narrating how she was raised by her parents to value hard work and sincere public service, Mayor Sara said she adheres to just, equal, and honest governance.

“Dala-dala ko po ang turo sa akin ng mga magulang ko dito sa pagta-trabaho ko, paninilbihan ko sa syudad ng Davao. Sa aking pag ta-trabaho po, pantay-pantay ang lahat. Walang mayaman, walang mahirap, walang matanda, walang bata, walang babae, walang lalake, pare-pareho po silang Dabawenyo,” Duterte said.

“Ganyan din po ang aking pangako sa aking trabaho, pare-pareho po lahat Filipino,” she added.

She said her choice of former Senator Bongbong Marcos as running-mate is attributed to the latter’s broad experience in legislation and public administration.

Meanwhile, stressing the importance of a vibrant foreign exchange, she said local currency trading just among Filipinos is not enough but should be brought to a global scale through foreign investments for the country’s economic health.

“Hindi po pu-pwede na tayo lang po ang nagpapalitan ng pera dito sa loob ng Pilipinas. Mas importante po sa atin ang foreign investments, o ‘yung pera na nanggagaling sa ibang bansa na nilalagay nila dito sa loob ng Pilipinas,” she added.

This, Mayor Sara said, will earn investors’ confidence.

“Gusto po natin ipakita na malakas ang Pilipinas, safe and secure, at maging confident ang mga investors sa kanilang pera dito sa loob ng Pilipinas,” she said.
