DIGONG’S SINCERITY AND DEDICATION

DESPITE incessant attacks against his person especially his human rights records relative to his campaign against illegal drugs, President Rody ‘Digong’ Duterte continues to enjoy trust and confidence from among influential local and international business groups, economic managers and credit rating agencies.

It appears that these groups especially the credit rating agencies are impressed with his leadership no matter how uncanny it may seem and that he is able to deliver the economic programs that his administration has lined-up for the country.

The Duterte administration’s Philippine Development Plan 2017-2022, which serves as its socioeconomic blueprint, targets 7 to 8 percent…

TIMELY ASSISTANCE

THE Japanese government’s decision to draw up an action plan for the country’s power sector to help solve perennial problems such as limited sources and supply as well as exorbitant rates could not have come at a more appropriate time. 

For several years now, the Philippines has been consistently posting economic gains but the prohibitive costs of electricity are preventing the country from making significant economic strides.

The move is seen to help achieve its goal of expanding membership and at the same time ensure that our OFWs would have something to look up to once they decide to stop working overseas and stay in the country for good.

According to the latest data from the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA), there are 2.4 million OFWs as of 2016.

TRUTH OF THE MATTER

NOTWITHSTANDING the uncertainty in the mining sector which could greatly affect the country’s economy, President Rody Duterte has maintained that he is backing Environment Secretary Gina Lopez in her   commitment to stop mining operations in the country.

The fact that the President said he was willing to sacrifice the P70-B that mining companies contribute to the national coffers every year in the form of taxes just to support Lopez, should send a very strong and clear message to the miners.
