Pinakikilos ni Ways and Means Committee Chair Joey Salceda ang Department of Budget and Management, Department of Finance, at Bureau of Treasury na gawing mabilis ang disbursement o paglalabas ng pondo upang maging mabilis din ang pagpapatupad ng mga programa ng pamahalaan.
Ayon sa House Tax Chief, sa kabila ng magandang revenue collection ng Bureau of Internal Revenue ay mabagal naman ang government spending.
Katunayan, bumaba aniya ang disbursement ng 1.05%.
“Unfortunately, despite growth in collections, we are actually implementing contractionary fiscal policy, with disbursements being 1.05% down, despite expectations of around 6% real GDP growth this year. Together with the Fed’s continued commitment to increase hikes further by at least 25 bps this week, and the contractionary monetary policy that these actions force our BSP to take, we cannot expect resilient growth with these economic policies,” ayon kay Salceda.
Dagdag pa nito na kung hindi magiging mabilis at agresibo ang implementasyon ng mga programa ay aasa lamang ang ating ekonomiya sa private sector at posibleng hindi pa maaabot ang target growth.
“And crucial agencies for economic and social services, such as DPWH, DOLE, and DBM, must Be more aggressive in implementing programs to expand productivity. Otherwise, growth will come solely from the private sector – and we are very likely to fall short of our targets.” diin ng mambabatas. | ulat ni Kathleen Jean Forbes
