LAKAS-Christian Muslim Democrats (CMD) vice presidential candidate Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte on Wednesday stressed the importance of knowledge in business to help fight hunger and poverty.
Speaking before a huge crowd during the “meet-and-greet” at the Cuneta Astrodome, Duterte reiterated the need to establish educational programs concerning businesses.
“Kulang kasi kung sweldo lang ang ating aasahan – sweldo ng asawa, sweldo ng breadwinner. Dapat marunong rin po ang ating mga kababayan na magnegosyo,” Duterte said.
In Davao City, Duterte established the project “Magnegosyo ‘Ta Day,” which aims to provide economic opportunities to residents for them to become productive.
The project also offers free education on business and financial assistance to use as start-up capital.
Duterte vowed to look into the business sector in providing economic stability if she wins in the May polls.
“Mayroon pong science ang pagne-negosyo, at dapat po natuturuan lahat. ‘Yan po ang panguna na tututukan natin – ‘yung pera sa bulsa, at pagkain sa mesa,” Duterte said.
Meanwhile, Pasay City Mayor Emi Calixto-Rubiano lauded Duterte and urged the residents to support the UniTeam VP bet.
“We must choose someone like Sara who is service-driven so that we can continue to grow and develop as a Filipino nation. Higit sa lahat, alam kong lalaban siya para sa karapatan ng lahat ng mga Pilipino,” Rubiano said.
Duterte was in Pasay City to meet with supporters in different barangays.
She also met with the Pasay City Market Vendors, Samar barangay officials, and Tawi-Tawi governor and mayors.
