MANILA, Philippines- Batid na ng Philippine government ang “main drivers” ng inflation kasunod ng pagsirit sa 8.0% nitong Nobyembre.

Binigyang-diin ni Pangulong Ferdinand Marcos Jr. na ang inflation ay “running rampant and out of control.”

“We just received the poor news from the Philippine Statistics that November we hit 8%. And we are now trying to identify the areas of the economy that are – that are the main drivers of that inflation. The main drivers of that inflation, unfortunately, are still imported – is still imported inflation,” ayon kay Pangulong Marcos sa kanyang naging talumpati sa 11th Arangkada Philippines Forum 2022.

“So again, import substitution is still a good idea not only for foreign exchange reserve but also so that we can keep our inflation rate down,” dagdag na wika ng Pangulo.

Sa kabilang dako, sinabi ng Philippine Statistics Authority, tumaas ang inflation ng 8.0% nitong buwan ng Nobyembre, itinuturing na “fastest” simula November 2009’s 9.1% at nalampasan ang 14-year high na 7.7% na naitala noong Oktubre.

Magkagayon man, sinabi ni Pangulong Marcos na ang bansa ay “is on track to maintain its strong economic performance and achieve the government’s growth target of 6.5% to 7.5% for 2022.”

“Unfortunately, although our growth rate looks healthy, our foreign exchange has become – our peso has become a little stronger relative to the other currencies, our unemployment rate is quite reasonable considering the situation,” lahad nito.

Aniya, layunin ng kanyang administrasyon na i- transform ang Philippine economy upang samantalahin ang “new realities” na present sa new normal.

“So to achieve this goal, we require investments that will increase our adoption of electric vehicles [and] build supporting infrastructure; to encourage the growth of sustainable manufacturing and construction; [and] promote green businesses and enterprises in tourism and other sectors,” ayon sa Pangulo.
