Changing the Economic System
The people’s lifestyle will not go back anymore the way it was before the Coronavirus pandemic. Most big industries are gone. It will take time to rebuild them due to significant losses. The economic system must change. The government should spearhead in providing jobs for the workforce. Take the case of the construction industry. Building condominiums and other establishments come to a halt. The Build Build Build project of the Duterte administration can now hire the workers who are out of work. That could start up the economy.
Lessons Learned from the Pandemic
Many sectors are gone and if they have to start again, they need to build them up better than before. Working together as one country is the only way to do it. Each project must be good for all and not just for specific investors. Going back to the province is a good move. This would allow agriculture and fisheries to foster. However, the government must support these start-ups from the very beginning to create a better foundation.
Today’s needs are somewhat different than before. It is because of the digital lifestyle that we have to embrace. Those who cannot adapt to the changes would remain poor. Therefore, now is the right time to learn new skills to start doing innovative ways in various businesses.
