He emphasized that these are the fundamental pillars for building clean, connected, and smart cities that are economically competitive, environmentally sustainable, and socially responsible.

He also called for the continued strengthening of public-private partnerships at national and sub-national levels. This collaboration, he stressed, is vital for fostering sustainable development, including urban and tourism development, accountability, environmental protection, and the provision of safe services and welcoming hospitality.

Building on past initiatives, Prime Minister Manet encouraged continued support for various campaigns and standards aimed at maintaining cleanliness and improving the visitor experience. These include:
