26 July 2022 – On behalf of Anti-Red Tape Authority (ARTA), I congratulate the newly elected Senate President, Senator Juan Miguel F. Zubiri.

Over the years, the young hardworking, passionate, and good looking legislator has made numerous significant contributions to the country, including the passage of the Ease of Doing Business Law.

Senator Zubiri was the primary author and sponsor of Republic Act No. 11032, also known as the Ease of Doing Business and Efficient Government Service Delivery Act of 2018 which paved the way for the creation of ARTA.

He has long been a champion of the ease of doing business and a firm advocate of ARTA’s mandate to deliver better services to the people.

In 2019, he said that, “it [R.A. No. 11032] will not be successful without the success of ARTA. Kailangan talaga suportahan natin ang ARTA dahil sila yung magiging superbody na tutulong sa ating mga kababayan sa nasa mga sitwasyon na hindi nilalabas ang mga certificate at permit.”

With his dedication to removing all red tape, he has made significant progress toward his legislative goals of advancing economic growth and combating poverty.

Furthermore, through the Bayanihan to Recover as One Act, he has led the accomplishment of people’s agenda amidst the pandemic.

We believe, that in his new role as Senate President, he can make greater contribution towards the achievement of the country’s socioeconomic goals. Rest assured that I, along with ARTA, fully support all of his efforts, particularly those aimed at improving the ease of doing business and increasing government efficiency in the country.
