Munti biz group recognizes Fresnedi’s response vs COVID-19, assistance to local businesses

The Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry – Muntinlupa has recognized the local government’s efforts in curbing the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in the city and its assistance to local businesses amid the pandemic.

During the local business chamber’s virtual general assembly on Wednesday, PCCI-Muntinlupa president Elvie Sanchez-Quiazon conferred the Sterling Growth Catalyst Award to Muntinlupa Mayor Jaime Fresnedi in recognition of his leadership in addressing the health crisis while still boosting the sustainability of local economy.

Quiazon said the local chamber lauds Mayor Fresnedi’s “transformational and adaptable leadership, commitment and eminent public service to boost the development and sustainability of the Muntinlupa City in challenging times.”

PCCI-Muntinlupa has also awarded the City Health Office with Noble Award for its “unwavering generosity of providing its expertise on allocating help to the community to attain public health safety.”

CHO chief Dra. Teresa Tuliao virtually received the awards from PCCI-Muntinlupa. Annually, the local chamber recognizes outstanding innovators and leaders through its Paramount Awards.

Mayor Jaime Fresnedi extended his thanks to PCCI-Muntinlupa for their recognition of the local government’s COVID-19 response efforts to minimize its health, economic, and social impacts in the city.

Fresnedi said the recognition is not a testament to a single person’s efforts but to the hard work of Muntinlupa’s front-liners who are driven by a shared goal to eliminate COVID-19 in the city.

Further, the local exec assured the group of the local government’s continuing concern and support to MSMEs and local businesses in Muntinlupa.

As of July 21, Muntinlupa City has 902 confirmed cases with 401 recoveries, 439 active cases, 62 reported deaths, 408 suspect cases, and 355 probable cases.
