2023-2028 PDP, hindi pa kumpleto

HINDI pa kumpleto ang dokumento ng  2023-2028 Philippine Development Plan (PDP) kaya’t naunsiyami ang pag-apruba sana ni Pangulong  Ferdinand  Marcos Jr., araw ng Biyernes.
Habang inilarawan ng National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) ang  blueprint bilang  “ready for implementation,” sinasabing ang  “final version” ay ide-deliver  “by the end of this year.”
Dahil dito, itinakda sa Enero 2023 ang opisyal na  public launch ng 2023-2028 PDP.
Mananatili namang kakatiting ang detalye ng  2023-2028 PDP  maliban sa kakaunting macroeconomic targets na nakadetalye sa  NEDA primer gaya ng “Gross domestic product growth of 6.5 to 8.0 percent through 2028; Unemployment hitting 4.0 to 5.0 percent in 2028 from around 8.0 percent as of 2021; Poverty declining to 9 percent of the population by 2028; and Wage and salaried workers accounting for 53 to 55 percent of total employment from 48 percent in 2021.”
Sa kabilang dako, sinabi ni Socioeconomic Planning Secretary Arsenio Balisacan na kasama sa PDP ang  “A 2023 GDP growth target of 6.0 to 7.0 percent;  Inflation and food inflation hitting 2.5 to 4.5 percent in 2023 and 2.0 to 4.0 percent from 2024 to 2028; The national government debt-to-GDP ratio narrowing to 48 to 53 percent by 2028 from 63.7 percent this year; and  A 2028 poverty target of 8.8 to 9.0 percent from 18.1 percent last year.
“The expiring 2017-2022 PDP’s core indicators included targets for gross national income (GNI), subsistence, underemployment and human development index and global innovation index rankings. The final update to the 2017-2022 plan even included a list of legislative priorities,” ayon kay Balisacan.
Araw ng Sabado, sinabi ni  Balisacan na kumpiyansa siya na ang GNI ay magi- improve sa 2025 para payagan ang Pilipinas na  ma-classify bilang upper-/middle-income economy.
Samantala, ang overall goal ng 2023-2026 PDP, ayon sa NEDA primer, ay ” reinvigoration of job creation and poverty reduction” sa pamamagitan ng  pagbabalik ng ekonomiya  sa high-growth path kasunod ng  Covid-19 pandemic.
“It remains committed to achieving the long-term AmBisyon Natin 2040 vision but with a focus on the Marcos government’s eight-point agenda of: Protecting purchasing power;  Reducing vulnerability and mitigating the scarring from the pandemic; Ensuring sound macroeconomic fundamentals; Creating more jobs, Creating quality jobs; Creating green jobs; Ensuring a level playing field; and Upholding public order and safety and peace and security,”ayon sa NEDA primer.
“In particular, the primer highlighted that arresting inflation would be a priority, to be accomplished via “holistically” addressing food, energy and transportation/logistics constraints “to ensure that there is enough supply of basic goods and services that is affordable and accessible to all,” ayon pa rin sa ulat.
Binigyang diin din ang pangako na bawasan ang epekto ng pandemiya, sa pamamagitan ng patuloy na implementasyon sa “risk-managed interventions to fully reopen the economy” at tiyakin na hindi mababalam  at masisiguro ang delivery ng social services gaya ng kalusugan, edukasyon at social protection.
“The jobs agendas were the final items to be stressed in the primer, which stated that “productivity-enhancing investments will be promoted while exercising prudence in fiscal management, “ayon pa rin sa NEDA.
Idagdag pa ang ” A more holistic Build, Build, Build program will be implemented, public-private partnerships will be strategically utilized, local governments supported in terms of spending wisely on infrastructure and the country’s internet will also be upgraded.”
Ang Employability ay itataas sa pamamagitan ng  “avenues for retooling/reskilling and effective job facilitation processes and “special attention” will be given to developing sustainable technologies to create green jobs and livable communities.”
Binigyang diin sa NEDA primer na  “jobs strategy will be supported by enhanced implementation of the National Competition Policy and the accelerated operationalization of amended laws governing foreign investments.” (Daris Jose)
