The bill amending Corporation Code of the Philippines could help attract more investors and create new jobs in the country, according to Sen. Joel Villanueva.

“The immediate passage of this bill into law is a concrete step towards attracting more investors to our country, thereby creating more jobs for Filipinos, by allowing the establishment of one-person corporations, providing for perpetual existence of corporations, and removing the minimum capital requirement under the current law, among others,” Villanueva said in a statement issued on Wednesday.


Earlier, the bicameral committee report on amending the Corporation Code was ratified by the Senate.
