WHEREAS, AmBisyon Natin 2040 envisions that by the year 2040, the Philippines shall be a prosperous, predominantly middle class society where no one is poor and those in public service are watching out for the less fortunate, protecting their rights, and helping them out of poverty, instead of taking public funds and keeping it for themselves;
