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.

As we all know, high power rates, subpar infrastructures, bureaucratic red tape, lawlessness and corruption are among the reasons that are keeping manufacturers and businessmen from bringing in their investments in the…

SECURING OUR OFWs’ FUTURE

IT’S GOOD that the Social Security System (SSS) is pushing for the mandatory coverage of overseas Filipino workers as part of the proposed reforms and amendments in its charter now pending before Congress.

HOUSE OF ‘REPRESENTATHIEVES’ NO MORE

FOR the longest time, the Filipino people have been looking and waiting for leaders who would best represent and protect their interests.

It is good to know therefore that the present political leadership under President Rodrigo Duterte has been trying its best to live up to its campaign promises of uplifting the lives of the ordinary people.

But what is more notable is the fact even the House of Representatives  which has been derisively described in the past as ‘House of Representathieves’ is also doing more than its fair share in helping the cause of the masses through its well…
