My warmest greetings to the Association of Human Resources Managers in the Hospitality Industry (AHRM) as it holds its 22nd Mabuhay Awards.

I join AHRM in giving due recognition to employees and managers who have created real and meaningful changes in the respective pursuits. By upholding excellence in their line of work, the awardees have been role models to their colleagues. Their deeds symbolize what the country expects of this industry - bold, adaptive to change, and innovative. Truly, the hospitality and human resources management sectors have been our proactive partners in bolstering our efforts in nation-building.

The government sees the potential of what this nation has to offer the world. Thus, we have taken steps to relax travel restrictions and improve physical infrastructure so visitors can have a more hassle-free experience in the Philippines. Through a culture of outstanding service, I encourage each of you to take part of this worthwhile endeavor. Together, let us continue to inspire others and create a more dynamic tourism industry.

Congratulations to our awardees and I wish you all the best.
