MANILA (PNA) — Grab Philippines welcomes and supports Budget and Management Secretary Benjamin Diokno’s state-ment encouraging state officials to use the ride-hailing services of trans-portation network com-panies (TNCs) instead of buying their own cars.
Grab Philippines’ Country Head Brian Cu said Grab has always been a partner of the govern-ment for development and will continue to do so, especially with this new statement of the DBM chief.
“Helping ensure the safety and security of commuters is a big respon-sibility for any company. Grab has always been ready to engage and coo-perate with the govern-ment to not only resolve regulatory issues but also to find solutions to make Filipinos’ daily commute a better, safer experience,” Cu said.
“And certainly, as an active partner, we are called to be mindful of our responsibilities as a member of the community. Aside from providing job opportunities to Filipinos, Grab also helps the economy by religiously paying proper taxes and dues,” he added.
As the leading TNC, Cu emphasized that Grab Philippines is ready to work on a partnership with the government on the proposed use of Transportation Network Vehicle Services (TNVS) for government workers, offering their business transport solution, Grab for Work, to DBM employees as a pilot project.
