Rising Inflation Should Not Distract Us
Accelerating inflation is a major concern for many nations, including the Philippines. But it should not sidetrack our policymakers from pursuing a high-growth economy given the momentum achieved by the Philippines in previous quarters.
I spent all my years as a public servant in the legislature. From 1992 to 2001, I represented Las Piñas in the House of Representatives where I was fortunate enough to be chosen as a Speaker by my peers. Then from 2001 to 2013, I served as Senator in the upper chamber where I became Senate President Pro Tempore and eventually Senate President. From the Batasang Pambansa to the august halls of the Philippine Senate, I have learned a lot about legislation, Philippine politics and everything in between.
Lofty Economic Goals
The overwhelming mandate received by president-elect Ferdinand Marcos Jr. in the just-concluded elections has gifted him the right to steer the Philippines to nobler heights. I can safely assume that Mr. Marcos and his incoming Cabinet will aspire for much higher economic goals given the trust he received from the majority of Filipinos. His leadership will focus on the economy to generate more jobs and lift millions of Filipinos out of poverty.
