Aquino III on Friday vowed to address the concerns of the business sector, especially those on power supply and port congestion, to achieve the country’s goal of inclusive growth. Speaking before hundreds of the country’s top business executives and entrepreneurs during the 40th Philippine Business Conference and Expo held at the Manila Hotel, the President thanked the business sector for coming up with resolutions that will help the government pinpoint areas that need to be improved. “Let me be the first to say that we are in agreement with your concerns; this is not the first time we have heard about these matters, and I can assure you that practically all aspects of your resolutions are already being addressed by government,” he said. On the formulation of an integrated and sustainable energy and power development roadmap, President Aquino said “the efforts to reform the power industry, as embodied in the Electric Power Industry Reform Act (EPIRA), is still a work in progress.” He noted that “just-intime” energy supplies do not attract more investment, hence the need to change the business model, which he said is also a work in progress. “The work will infinitely be faster and more efficient with the cooperation of the business sector. There are around three major entities in power today who are investing in the sector, even without long-term power purchase agreements or power supply contracts,” he said, adding that he hopes more investors would follow suit and would seek ways and means to encourage more to follow their track. On port congestion, the Chief Executive said government agencies led by Cabinet Secretary Rene Almendras have been working with the private sector to address the problem. He cited Executive Order 172, which designates the ports of Subic and Batangas as temporary extensions of the Port of Manila in times of congestion and other predicaments. continued on page 3 TRECE MARTIRES CITY, CAVITE -- With the continuous economic progress, Cavite’s population reached more than 4 million over the last couple of years with the influx of migrants seeking job opportunities. These figures solidify the recent statement made by Governor Juanito “Jonvic” Remulla that the population of the province had reached the four million mark this year. Also, these migrant workers as well as foreign investors should not be seen as a threat to local residents since they are actually contributing to the province’s economic development and in turn get the jobs they need. Mr. Jesus Barreira, head of the Provincial Planning and Development Office confirmed that the province’s population doubled from 2,063,161 that were recorded in 2000. Likewise, similar statement was made by the Provincial Population Office. Males remained outnumbered by females by a mere 1.42 percent. Females accounted 50.71 percent while the male is 49.29 percent. The province population growth rate in the last few years is 4.12 percent. For the past fourteen years, the province of Cavite has seen and experienced the increase in economy with the welcoming of new investors and the rising of industrial and manufacturing companies that had generated thousands of job opportunities and employment to residents and local migrants alike. The provincial government has no plan of controlling the flow of migrants in the province as this is a mutual benefit that the province and the jobseekers both received.
