PHL Thriving on Strong Tourism, Stable Peso
IT looks like we have an auspicious beginning in 2020. Another positive economic data has emerged in December that points to a much stronger economy this year.
It’s a new year. I wish all my readers a peaceful and prosperous 2020. For the country, I hope we can continue our economic growth and sustain the gains of the last few years. This is one of those times when boring is better than excitement. Stability is boring but it is beneficial for us. When we gradually climb our way to success without any unnecessary turbulence then that is good for our country.
Strong Economic Growth is Proof of BBB Success
Critics of the administration are claiming that President Duterte’s “Build, Build, Build” (BBB) infrastructure program is a “dismal failure.”
I totally disagree with that assessment. There are no metrics that show the BBB program is a flop. On the contrary, the infrastructure program is a success if gauged by the number of Filipino jobs it created and its contribution to the overall gross domestic product.
