My warmest greetings to the Fireworks Trade Exhibitions and Conferences Philippines, Inc. as it holds the PhilMarine Expo 2023, Oil Gas Philippines Expo 2023, and Naval Defense Expo 2023. As a Maritime nation, it is fitting that this administration has made the maritime industry as its top priority, with unqualified support in building the maritime sector that will be looked upon with admiration by the region and the rest of the world. I laud Fireworks Trade Exhibitions and Conferences Inc., for its commitment to bringing in novel ideas that will further enhance the current shipbuilding technology, and help maintain the Philippines’ current status as the world’s #5 largest shipbuilding industry.
I wish you all success in your future endeavors.
GIOVANNI CARLO J. BACORDO
