In a joint statement, the Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry (PCCI), Employers Confederation of the Philippines (ECOP), and Philippine Exporters Confederation Inc. (PhilExport) expressed support for Pascual.
The DTI-Employees Union also threw their support behind Pascual’s appointment as DTI secretary.
