Inilista ng World Bank sa 6.5 porsyento ang economic growth ng Pilipinas ngayong taon.

“The Philippines has what it takes to sustain this high level of growth for many years,” pahayag ni World Bank Country Director Motoo Konishi sa paglabas ng “Making Growth for the Poor” na Philippine Economic Update (PEU).

“The country is benefiting from low and stable inflation, its finances are healthy, and debt levels are declining. It has a dynamic private sector that is seizing global opportunities. Now is the time to move the economy decisively onto a path that reduces poverty and creates more and better jobs,” dagdag ni Konishi.

Umaasa si Konishi na lalong aangat ang ekonomiya ng Pilipinas lalo kapag nagamit nang wasto ang pondo nito sa imprastraktura tungo sa pagkakaroon ng trabaho ng mga Pinoy.

“If growth is sustained at 6 percent per year and the current rate at which growth reduces poverty is maintained, poverty could be eradicated within a single generation,” pahayag ni World Bank Lead Economist Rogier van den Brink.
