Slow PH growth doesn’t worry Palace: Pag bumaba wala nang ibang puntahan kung di umakyat
By Prince Golez
Malacañang is unperturbed by the country’s slow 5.9 percent full-year GDP growth rate for 2019.
“Sabi naman nila ganun daw talaga yun eh, pag bumaba wala nang ibang puntahan kung di umakyat, why worry?” Presidential Spokesperson Salvador Panelo said in a media interview Thursday.
Panelo praised the country’s “competent” economic managers for doing good work.
“I think we have competent economic managers, they’re doing their job very well,” he said.
Asked if the government is confident that growth will accelerate, Panelo said: “Since the economic managers say we should not be worried, we believe them.
“Because they are very competent, remember di ba yung inflation rate natin eh na control nila yun, ang dami nilang ginawang measures eh, magagaling nga sila eh.”
