BRIGHT ECONOMIC OUTLOOK

DESPITE all the problems besetting the country, such as the threats brought by terror groups like Maute and Abu Sayyaf especially in Mindanao, as well as the continuing destabilization moves by some sectors opposed to the current regime, outlooks are still pretty bright in the economic front.

Credit therefore must be given to the efficient leadership of President Rodrigo ‘Digong’ Duterte and his economic managers who have been doing a remarkable job in keeping intact the country’s economic prospects.

That the Lopezes and their ilk were desperate to wrest the rights to air NBA programs from homegrown cable television producer Solar Entertainment speaks of how they are willing to go to further monopolize the country’s media industry.
