TeaM Energy energizes off-grid

IN SITIO Daungang Pari, a small, secluded community in Pagbilao, Quezon, residents are experiencing the benefits of electricity in their households for the very first time as they recently received 29 solar home systems from TeaM Energy Foundation, Inc. (TEFI) through its Light A Home project.

The challenge of sustaining e

January 30, 2017
[totalcount] [comment_count]
Our economy has repeatedly shown that it is strong and resilient, borne out by sustained pursuit of our reform agenda. Even with the various threats to growth and stability in 2016, our economy went on to grow a robust 6.8%, as fourth quarter growth came in at 6.6%. 

The current account surplus is supported by continued foreign exchange inflows from remittances by overseas Filipinos (OFs) as well as business process outsourcing (BPO) revenues and tourism receipts.

The Philippine banking sector remains sound, stable, liquid and well-functioning based on various performance metrics. Among others, bank lending continues to grow at double-digit rates, most of which goes to the productive sector. 

Behind the country’s economic achievements is a long history of structural reforms, disciplined macroeconomic management, and enhanced governance practices. The reforms were challenging, to say the least, but necessary to build institutions that will help ensure a more balanced, more sustainable, and more inclusive growth.

“We have a traffic crisis we intend to solve in the next two to three years. The Philippines has had an infrastructure deficit in the last four decades. There is a clamor not only to address the deficiencies but also to propose an infrastructure program that would eventually ease traffic in our major urban centers”

DA eyes increased production

by Jed Macapagal on January 30, 2017
[totalcount] [comment_count]
The department is looking at programs that can help boost production by maximizing the use of farmlands in the country...  We need to review our agricultural planning. We need to be innovative.

“Among the non-traditional areas which may be considered for development as farming sites are Palawan, Samar, Agusan, Zamboanga, Davao, Basilan, and Soccsksargen where the use of hybrid seeds has yet to be fully practiced and where climate is hardly an extreme concern”

“Piñol said the Agricultural Modernization Program aims to provide farmers in 10 model sites nationwide with farm equipment including grains dryer, post-harvest facilities, technical support and institutional development”

“Aside from areas outside typhoon routes, DA also mentioned that it is considering the possibility of turning portions of military reservation areas in the country as agricultural production areas such as Fort Magsaysay (partly pictured) which alone encompasses 46,000 hectares”

Hitting the Sweet Spot

January 30, 2017
[totalcount] [comment_count]
“All that we have neglected we are now in a position to correct. Our debt service load has become more manageable. We have achieved investment-grade ratings. We find ourselves in a global low interest rate regime --- although this might not last for too long. The interest rate regime allows us to access capital to build our industrial base. Our banking system has ample liquidity”

“We are in a good position to maintain 7% GDP growth into the medium term, helped by stronger spending on infrastructure”

No one loves taxes. No one loves the Taxman. But unless the State ensures it has the revenues to support education and public health, close the infra gap and build enough roads to allow our tourism industry to take off, we will continue to languish in the moderate and exclusive growth we saw the last two decades.

This is the breakout moment for our economy. All the megatrends favor a dramatic shift to high, inclusive growth. We need to summon the political will to push the reform program --- or else the fourth factor of a highly popular reformist leadership will be wasted.

BOI, PEZA on investments: Grea

“Guided by a new Investment Priorities Plan (IPP) which would have a broader coverage of industries in manufacturing entitled to incentives, the BOI and PEZA have great expectations for a strong 2017, the first full-year of the Duterte administration”

Provided they meet the criteria on investments, employment and technology transfer in support of the government’s Manufacturing Resurgence Program, all manufacturing activities have been qualified by the BOI for incentives.
 

Via revised CTRP: Less overall

by Angela Lorraine Celis on January 30, 2017
[totalcount] [comment_count]
Under the revised CTRP drafted by the Department of Finance, income tax brackets for individuals earning purely compensation income and individuals engaged in business and practice of profession will be simplified, with the aim of lessening the overall tax burden of the poor and the middle class.

“We are redesigning our tax system to be simpler, fairer, and more efficient for all, while also raising the resources needed to invest in our infrastructure and our people. Our goal is to correct our tax system’s inequity”

“Tax administration, which includes improvements in both the BIR and BOC is equally important and is in fact the priority for 2017 before the tax policy reforms are fully implemented in 2018”

Micro-financing for MSMEs: Add

The SSF program has provided over P1 billion worth of machinery and equipment. There are now over 2,100 SSFs which have assisted in providing tools and equipment for the common use of MSMEs belonging to business organizations and cooperatives

Priority beneficiaries include microenterprises and entrepreneurs that do not have easy access to credit, or are accessing credit at very high cost, such as, micro-entrepreneurs, market vendors, agri-businessmen and members of cooperatives, industry associations and co-operators.
