PRESIDENT Duterte formally opened the National Sports Summit 2021 yesterday via Zoom and encouraged the nearly 600 participants to continue to inspire the younger generations.
“My warmest greetings to the Philippine Sports Commission as it spearheads the National Sports Summit 2021. This online sports lecture-forum is indeed timely as we turn to sports as a means to move forward and engendered national unity especially as we deal with a COVID-19 pandemic,” Duterte said.
“Conducting this initiative through this online platform proves that sports can still be a tool in promoting excellence and instilling pride in the hearts of our people even as we prepare for the new normal. I urge all the participants to continue your worthwhile endeavors so that we may empower further all Filipinos especially the youth,” he added.
