Pres. Duterte to Allow Foreign Companies to Improve Internet Services for Filipinos


Pres. Rody Duterte, the very first President from the island of Mindanao, conveyed his plan to allow foreign telecommunications companies to do business in the Philippines to improve the country's internet services for Filipinos.



The statement of Pres. Duterte came out after resignation of former Secretary Rodolfo Salalima of the Department of Information and Communications Technology, who allegedly failed to solve slow internet connection problem in the country.

The former Mayor of Davao City confirmed the resignation of DICT Chief Salalima in a speech on his fifth visit to Marawi City citing personal and work-related reasons.

According to Pres. Duterte during an interview the only way to improve the internet service of the country is to invited international internet service providers. Pres. Duterte was quoted as saying "The only way to improve your service is bigyan kita ng kompitensya," the President said.

A total of four to six foreign internet service providers to enter the country, the President also said that a Chinese firm and a Singaporean-based company had already expressed desire to set up stations in the Philippines.

The former Chief Executive and prosecutor of Davao City earlier issued a warning to local telecommunications firms to improve the services that they provide to the public, otherwise they would have to compete with new players.

Pres. Duterte remains grateful for the overwhelming support he has been receiving from the Filipino public, as shown in recent surveys.

"To the Filipino people, salamat ho (sa) suporta ninyo. Because the surveys show, all, Pulse Asia, everything. So walang manipulation. Hindi fake news 'yan," he stressed.

"So ako naman, I am grateful, not elated. Nagmamagandang loob ho ako sa inyo na naintindihan ninyo ang trabaho ko. 'Yun lang," he added.

Pres. Duterte also reiterated his commitment to create genuine change in people's lives, particularly on ending the illegal drug problems and improving the country's economy so Filipinos no longer have to look for better jobs abroad.
