MANILA, Philippines – Welcome kay Pangulong Ferdinand Marcos Jr. ang 7.6% gross domestic product growth (GDP) sa third quarter ng bansa.

Ang pigura ayon sa Pangulo ay mas mataas kumpara sa pagtatantya ng gobyerno.

“That’s a very good news for us. That’s actually a little higher than our estimates of 6.5 to 7.5 (%) for the last quarter… so that makes sense though because the last piece of news we heard was the lowering of the unemployment rate and so that means there’s more economic activity and that’s reflected now in the growth,” ayon kay Pangulong Marcos sa isang video message, Huwebes ng gabi, Nobyembre 10.

Kasalukuyan ngayong nasa Phnom Penh, Cambodia si Pangulong Marcos para magpartisipa sa 40th at 41st ASEAN Summits and Related Summits.

Sa kabilang dako, sa naging pag-uulat ng Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA), ang ekonomiya ng bansa ay bumilis sa third quarter ng taon.

“The economy as measured by gross domestic product (GDP) — the total value of goods and services produced in a specific period — grew by 7.6% during the July to September period, which is faster than the upwardly adjusted 7.5% GDP growth in the second quarter of 2022,” ayon sa ulat.

Maliban sa pinakabagong GDP growth, sinabi ni Pangulong Marcos na mayroon ding naitalang paglago sa sektor ng agrikultura.

Muling inulit nito ang ginagawa ng gobyerno na dalhin sa tamang direksyon ang ekonomiya sa gitna ng mga nasabing kaganapan.

“And even in agriculture, I’m very happy to say that there is a specific measure of the growth of the agriculture sector by 2.2% and so something… the economy is moving, what we have to deal with, again the shocks that are coming from abroad but within the Philippines, within our economy, I think we have made the right policy decisions,” lahad ni Marcos.

“The Philippine government has been practicing a mix of interventions to alleviate the problems in the economy,” ayon pa sa Pangulo.

Binigyang diin nito na hindi naman lingid sa kaalaman ng gobyerno ang inflation rate dahil sumasalamin ito sa “cost of living” ng mga tao.

“With those figures, with the lowering of the unemployment rate, very high growth rate, that we at least are headed in the right direction…” wika ni Pangulong Marcos.

“Once again, we are always very conscious of the inflation rate because this reflects the cost of living of ordinary people. That is still of great concern to us. But, we have created the jobs, we have started the growth and that will pull us out the debt situation that we are in,” aniya. Kris Jose
