THE Department of Transportation (DOTr) urged all agency personnel to buckle down to work and remain focused on the work ahead to be able to complete transport projects in the aviation, railway, road and maritime sectors.
This was the call of DOTr Secretary Jaime Bautista as the agency capped its 125th anniversary celebration.
“This is the mission that DOTr has ahead of it. This is our ticket to a brighter future. This is an opportunity we should not miss on our way to a Bagong Pilipinas,” said Bautista, quoting President Ferdinand Marcos Jr.
“Let us buckle down to work with fresh outlook and renewed inspiration starting on our 125th year. It is time to complete the transformation. All eyes on the work ahead,” he added.
Bautista said DOTr must be innovative and pioneering in implementing projects that will change the entire spectrum of Philippine transport as he reiterated the Chief Executive’s instructions to the agency.
He likewise stressed that transport projects must respond to the needs of the present and anticipate circumstances in the future.
“The same sensitivity to emerging trends, and best practices should define our pivot to commuter- and commuter-friendly transit systems,” Bautista stressed.
“As we undertake our transport infrastructure projects with renewed enthusiasm and confidence, knowing the President has our backs, we are urged to be innovative and pioneering,” he said.
