MANILA – The Philippines is opening up its telecommunications sector to more foreign investors, said Economic Planning Secretary Ernesto Pernia.
“The best offer would be picked from other offers as well,” Pernia told reporters on Saturday at a forum in Manila.
Pernia said the invitation by President Rodrigo Duterte isn’t exclusive to Chinese companies.
“China is in the frontline now because no other country has sounded out or expressed interest to come in,” he explained.
Duterte has vowed to improve the country’s telecommunications sector, promising better internet connectivity.
