To put things in perspective, posted below is the excerpt from the Manila Bulletin news report. Some parts in boldface…
Muntinlupa Mayor Ruffy Biazon commended the top 10 taxpayers and the business community for helping in reviving the local economy especially after the onslaught of the Covid-19 pandemic.
During the 28th Muntinlupa cityhood anniversary on March 1, the top 10 taxpayers were recognized.
They were Filinvest Alabang, Inc.; Ford Group Philippines, Inc.; Filinvest Land Inc. – Festival Supermall; Ayala Land Inc.; Filinvest Reit Corporation; Meralco Business Center; Amkor Technology Philippines; Capital One Philippines Support Services Corporation; GenPact Services LLC Philippines, Inc.; and Insular Life Assurance Company Ltd.
In his State of the City Address, Biazon said Muntinlupa is “steadily bouncing back” from the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic, which crippled the economy and resulted in people losing their jobs.
“Our cityhood journey, and now our road to pandemic recovery, underscores the importance of working together, and shows what we can do when we are focused towards a more liveable and more responsive city for Muntinlupeños,” Biazon said.
Taxpayers, including business establishments, have fueled the city’s economic recovery from the pandemic, posting P6.033 billion in total revenues with 101.09 percent collection efficiency.
In addition, the city government recorded 12,232 registered businesses as of January 2023, up 59 percent from 7,651 registered businesses in the same period last year.
