MANILA, Philippines – Walang nakikitang mali si Albay 2nd district Representative Joey Salceda sa naging pahayag ni Ilocos Norte 1st district Representative Sandro Marcos na ang Philippine peso ay hindi naman umano mahina kontra dolyar.

“The fact that there is even controversy about Rep. Sandro’s remarks reflects what some quarters would do just to make an issue,” ani Salceda

“And in these remarks, I don’t see any major issue, anyway,” dagdag pa niya.

Matatandaan na sinabi kamakailan ni Rep. Marcos ang mga katagang: “The peso is not weak because the peso is weak. The peso is weak because the dollar is strong.”

Agad naman itong umani ng sari-saring reaksyon.

“The peso is actually stronger now against major global currencies like the Euro, the Yen, or the Pound than it used to be last year,” paliwanag ni Salceda.

“And, as consensus economics suggests, peripheral economies like the Philippines can’t do much to change the effects of actions by core economies like the United States. We can adapt, but that’s pretty much it,” dagdag pa niya. RNT/JGC
