Let me extend my warmest congratulations to incoming Secretary Alfredo Pascual for being named as the new DTI Secretary in the Marcos administration.

With his competence, integrity, energy and a wide range of experience in different industries, I know he will steer the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) towards greater heights in the years ahead. He is an excellent choice!  

I will be leaving DTI in the most capable hands of Secretary Pascual.  

Will definitely extend my full support to him for a smooth transition and beyond. ♦
