Investors urge Duterte to sign energy efficiency law

Amid fresh round of escalating energy prices, investors and policy advocates of the propounded Energy Efficiency and Conservation Act are batting for the immediate signing of the propounded law and for it to be feasibly enforced the soonest possible time.
