In a social media post, NEDA highlighted the year as one of hard work and dedication towards achieving a "Matatag, Maginhawa, at Panatag na Buhay para sa Lahat" (Stable, Comfortable, and Secure Life for All) this year.


NEDA stated that the board convened 12 times, the highest number in recent years, to swiftly approve critical infrastructure projects and advocate for policies aimed at transforming society into a prosperous, inclusive, and resilient one.



The initiatives laid the groundwork for deep economic and social transformation in the years to come.


Key initiatives included strategies to manage food commodity prices, protect purchasing power, and support vulnerable sectors through targeted subsidies. The continued implementation of Executive Order 10 impacted managing food inflation, reducing MFN tariff rates, and suspending pass-through fees for transporting goods.
