Vice President Sara Duterte-Carpio hoped that Filipinos would continue to be resilient and carry with them the sense of nationhood and “bayanihan” spirit this 2023.
In her New Year message, Duterte called on the nation to “embody our collective resolve and fortitude to begin anew” despite the challenges brought by the previous year.
“May our sense of nationhood, enduring spirit of Bayanihan, and unshakeable resiliency remain our guideposts as we continue upholding reforms, policies, and programs for the improved welfare of our people in the education sector, uniformed services, civilian personnel, frontline duty, and in the most vulnerable communities,” she said.
“I am hopeful that our tireless nation-building efforts will redound to the success of our undertakings in governance, the business arena, the agricultural sector, and in other viable industries so that we can conduct our development efforts with utmost regard to the greater good of the entire nation,” she continued.
Duterte-Carpio also encouraged Filipinos to envision a new year filled with purpose and steadfastness to build a better life for themselves and their communities.
The Vice President said the new year will mark “a new and promising season of growth for every Filipino.”
