"The inclusion of President Ferdinand R. Marcos Jr. in the TIME 100 list reflects his brand of leadership that puts the national interest and the welfare of every Filipino above all else," the PCO said in a statement.

Furthermore, the PCO applauded Marcos' administration for his steadfast commitment to the country's economic growth and recovery.

"Despite geopolitical tensions and the hurdles posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, President Marcos has elevated the Philippines on the world stage and contributed to regional stability, notably in the Indo-Pacific region," said PCO.
