Statements from the Cabinet Secretaries
“We will continue, but implement more vigorously, the existing programs against tax evaders and corrupt revenue officials with help from the Department of Justice,”
That means the programs are already there before their administration. I hope there are no padrinos for big time cheats. Nothing new.
DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE Secretary Proceso Alcala will review farm productivity and rice importation programs in order to determine whether announced targets could be reached.Paano naman kung may rice cartel and artificial shortage?
DEPARTMENT OF TRADE AND INDUSTRY Secretary Gregory Domingo is bent on delivering “very significant results” as it focuses on jobs creation, a better business environment, fair trade and consumer protection.May be he should start talking to businessmen who outsourced some of their companies' operations.
DEPARTMENT OF BUDGET AND MANAGEMENT (DBM) Secretary Florencio “Butch” Abad will likewise prepare for a zero-based budgeting process, and will institute measures to enforce more transparency, accountability and efficiency.
Good luck!!! One of the disadvantages of zero based budgeting is it is time consuming and exhaustive. Down below the hierarchy, the preparers do not even know how to prepare a budget. They are used to incremental budgeting where they have only to justify the increases in the budget. Anyway, they have six years to change the system. The last time I heard about its planned implementation was years ago.
DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC WORKS AND HIGHWAYS (DPWH) Secretary Rogelio Singson will make flood control projects a priority in view of climate change, according to the recommendation of his predecessor Victor Domingo.Promise ha.
