According to Peng, Duterte is capable of transforming the Philippines into a first-world and crime-free economy because of his very comprehensive agenda. 

“I think your president has many challenges to face and to deal with. But what’s striking is that he’s got a very comprehensive agenda and his ensemble is very experienced and very capable. He’s going to do it,” Peng said on Thursday.

Duterte garnered over 16 million votes, with the Filipinos hoping that the tough-talking mayor hailing from Davao would be the one to bring change to the country.

The Oxford Business Group has disclosed that Duterte fortunately inherited one of the best economy in Southeast Asia where in a span of eight years, the Philippine Stock Exchange doubled from 3,600 in 2008 and 7,000 in 2016.

The foreign direct investment also tripled since 2008.

Kok is positive that the current administration could turn the country into a wealthy, modern, clean, and safe one. “I think it’s the Philippine’s time. Every country has a time. This is it.”
