Virata BOARD OF TRUSTEES: Roberto De Ocampo Chairman Romeo Bernardo Vice-Chairman Calixto Chikiamco President Ernest Leung Treasurer Atty. Ricardo Balatbat III Corporate Secretary Thomas Allen Art Corpuz Felipe Medalla Vaughn Montes Gary Olivar Simon Paterno Gloria Tan-Climaco Francis Valera Atty. Ricardo Balatbat III Executive Director 105 Philippine Social Science Center (PSSC) Commonwealth Ave., Diliman, Quezon City Telefax: (632) 4532375 (Main Office) Tel No.: (632) 8939602 (Accounting) Website: www.fef.org.ph Email: fefphilippines@gmail.com / fef@fef.org.ph FEF STATEMENT ON THE SIGNING OF THE GRP-MILF PEACE AGREEMENT We, the Foundation for Economic Freedom, congratulate the GRP and the MILF on the signing of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement with the Bangsamoro. We also strongly support the passage of a Bangsamoro Basic Law that forms part of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement and urge Congress to swiftly pass the bill into law. Passage of the Basic Law will be a giant step toward peace and prosperity in Mindanao. The lack of peace, law and order, and political instability have been identified as constraints to doing business in Mindanao. The signing of a peace agreement with the MILF will help address these constraints. The peace agreement, together with a clear set of policies and the establishment of strong institutions, will encourage the entry of new businesses and pave the way toward inclusive growth.
