Almost all economic frontliners included in A4 priority list

Presidential Adviser for Entrepreneurship Secretary Joey Concepcion said all economic frontliners are included in the A4 priority list for the government’s COVID-19 program.

“Halos lahat ng economic frontliners [kasama sa A4]. Sa meeting namin ng National Immunization Technical Advisory Group (NITAG) composed of doctors, mayroon mga sectors na hindi pa nakasali katulad ng BPO, et cetera. Pero ipinasok na rin namin ‘yan kasi may ilang mga sectors na hindi pa kasama. Mukhang ipinasok na rin sila. So halos lahat ng economic frontliners ngayon in various sectors are part of the A4 already,” Concepcion said in an interview on Unang Balita.

(Almost all economic frontliners [are now part of the A4 priority list]. During our meeting with NITAG composed of doctors, there were sectors not yet included such as BPO, et cetera. But we included them all since there are sectors not yet included. It seems they were all included. So almost all economic frontliners now in various sectors are part of the A4 already.)
