MANILA, Philippines — President Ferdinand Marcos Jr. oversaw the turnover of P88.5 billion in dividend collections from government-owned and -controlled corporations (GOCCs) on Monday at the Philippine International Convention Center (PICC).

The event is called GOCC Day, an annual event first organized by the Department of Finance (DOF) in 2011.


In his speech, the president assured the public that the money would be used to improve government service.


“Since those dividends also come from the people, let me assure you that they will be carefully spent like the precious taxes that come from the sweat of their brow. It will be plowed back to them through projects and programs that will improve their lives today, and also create a better tomorrow for our children,” Marcos said in his speech.

“It will be invested back to growth-inducing activities that create jobs and harness opportunities. In the end, these dividends will yield more dividends, unleashing a virtuous cycle that lifts up those we serve to a higher standard of living,” he added.
