Financial executives back Robredo, Pangilinan

NINETEEN former presidents of the Financial Executives Institute of the Philippines (FINEX) have endorsed Vice President Maria Leonor “Leni” Robredo for president and Sen. Francis “Kiko” Pangilinan for vice president.

“Financial executives and officers serve as the conscience of their respective organizations. As such and more importantly, as Filipinos, we believe it is our duty to speak up,” they said in a statement on Friday.

They said that the “lack of transparency in the granting of government assets and contracts to allied parties, the ballooning of the national debt, the persistent unemployment rate, delayed access to critical health and social services, the compromise of national sovereignty by the defeatist attitude and non-enforcement of the Philippines’ exclusive economic zone rights, and the proliferation of disinformation and fake news” are the challenges Robredo and Pangilinan can address.

“We see in them what we expect of ourselves as finance professionals: To uphold high integrity; to stand for truth and probity; to maintain transparency and stewardship; to demonstrate the utmost competence; and to drive and achieve excellence,” they said.

The statement was signed by: Arsenio M. Bartolome 3rd; Jose L. Cuisia Jr.; Santiago F. Dumlao Jr.; Edwin V. Fernandez; Dennis D. Decena; Victor Y. Lim Jr.; Roman A. Azanza Jr.; Baltazar N. Endriga; Edwin B. Villanueva; Josue A. Camba Jr.; Rupert K. Suarez; Edgardo L. Limon; Franklin F. Ysaac; Abelardo V. Cortez; Roberto T. Borromeo; Ronnie B. Alcantara; Ramon G. Opulencia; Judith V. Lopez and Jose Jerome R. Pascual 3rd.
