In the message, the President makes reference to the great challenge the country is facing, saying that the economic recovery “will only be possible if we keep Covid-19 at bay and take advantage of everything that the country has transformed in search of efficiency.”
He continued to say that “nobody knows what it (2022) will be like. Personally, there is only one certainty that accompanies me: each and everyone together can do better.”
