Duterte’s SONA: PH in better position to weather global crisis brought by COVID pandemic  

CALOOCAN CITY, July 28 (PIA) -- In his fifth historic State of the Nation Address (SONA) today, President Rodrigo Roa Duterte said the economic and fiscal situation of the Philippines is strong and the country is in better position to weather the global crisis brought by coronavirus pandemic.

“Our fiscal position is strong, our economic and fiscal management prudent and our banking system robust,” Duterte said.

“We are in a better position to weather the crisis caused by the COVID-19 global pandemic,” he added.

The President said the Japan Credit Rating Agency last month has upgraded its credit rating for the Philippines to "A minus," the highest rating the country has ever received. This, despite the Association of South East Asian Nation (ASEAN) recent credit rating downgrades and amid “negative outlooks worldwide.”

“We received a BBB plus credit rating despite a sea of credit rating downgrades and negative outlook revisions worldwide. The Japan Credit Rating Agency upgraded us from BBB plus to A minus last month,” he said, as better credit ratings attest to the state's ability to settle debts and the stability of the country's economy.

“Meanwhile, Moody’s has affirmed and maintained the country’s ratings at B2 --- Baa2 rather,” he added.

The President also said the country accomplished significant infrastructure projects under the Build, Build, Build.

“We have accomplished significant infrastructure projects under the Build Build Build Program. I will not dwell lengthily on the nitty-gritty of our infrastructure accomplishments now lest I bore you,” he said.

“Instead we will release a comprehensive written report on our collective milestones and the details of accomplishments to remind us that perseverance, patience and determination will help us move forward even in the most difficult of times,” he added.

Duterte also mentioned the financial and material assistance of the government to the unemployed, the sick, and the poor running into billions of pesos during the lockdowns to soften some negative impacts on the more vulnerable sectors.

“Over 4.3 million poor families benefitted from the Pantawid Pamilya,” he said of government’s human development measure that provides conditional cash grants to the poorest of the poor, to improve the health, nutrition, and the education of children aged 0-18.

“Over 9.2 million beneficiaries received subsidies under the Unconditional Cash Transfer program,” he added.

“We also made available [free] tertiary education and universal health care. Public utility drivers were given assistance through the Pantawid Pasada Program,” he furthered.

Duterte, meanwhile, expressed gratitude to those who supplied food, water and basic utilities to households in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic.

Likewise, he lauded the efforts and sacrifice of frontline workers and local government officials who all helped the country weather the public health emergency crisis. (PIA NCR)

Para sa mga Pulahan

Kung narito ka ngayon. Marahil ay isa ka sa mga napadpad o mas magandang sabihin ay isa ka sa marites na nakatambay sa page ng mga kakampinks. Kung tama ako, para sayo talaga to!  Para sa mga PULAHAN. Wala ba kayong page na nagmamahal sa inyo kaya andito kayo sa page ng mga kakampinks? :) Salamat pa rin sa pagdalaw kahit ang purpose niyo talaga ay ang ibash kami. ✌️

Bakit Uto-Uto ang mga Pulahan?

Yung tipong habang tumitingin ka sa feed mo may nakita kang nag-share ng mga conspiracy theory. Bakit ba naeenganyo sila? Paniwalang paniwala sila. Basahin ang maikling kasagutan tungkol dito. It makes them feel special and different. It gives them a feeling of being better than others, of having their eyes opened to a 'truth' that others don't see. That's why some call non-believers 'sheeple.' I think it's similar to the feeling we get whenever we learn an obscure yet interesting piece of trivia. The thought of "No one else knows it!" I also think conspiracies appeal to the way humans think, especially now. A desire to search for patterns. There has to be reason and purpose for anything. But this is not right! I still blame the lack of the fundamental research skills that needs to be taught in school. I believe you get to have a full subject on your 4th year, but investigative skills and fact checking should be honed at a young age.
