Rape in San Vicente Palawan
 
09:43
A group of media people from the national dailies in the Philippines recently visited the town of San Vicente, Palawan to witness how a mountain is being "raped" by the town's own mayor to satisfy the whims of a foreign investor. Although, the mayor, Antonio Gonzalez, and four others Coron vice mayor Joseph Armstrong Palanca, Busuanga mayor Samuel de Jesus, former Sofronio Española mayor Iber Chou and foreign investor Michael Gleissner were already ordered by the Provincial Mining Regulatory Board (PMRB) to cease and desist from their illegal activities they are still continuously raping the mountain. Gleissner is reportedly building a highend resort. He bought the fishpond of mayor Gonzalez and then illegally excavated a nearby mountain to fill up the hollow portions of the ponds to level them. Recent inspection of the area showed some heavy equipment still operating, hauling and transferring excavated quarry materials which were being dumped in the fishpond in an apparent disregard of the cease and desist order.

Former Gov. Umali, naninindigan na sumunod sa batas sa pagbibigay ng sand and gravel permit
 
06:56
Naninindigan si Former Governor Aurelio Umali na sumunod sa batas ang Pamahalaang Panlalawigan ng Nueva Ecija sa pagbibigay ng sand and gravel permit sa huling pagdinig ng Committee on Good Government and Public Accountability kaugnay ng operasyon ng quarry sa probinsya. Hindi dapat pinagsama sa Administrative Order ng DENR o Department of Environment and Natural Resources ang magkahiwalay na Section 43 at Section 46 ng Philippine Mining Act of 1995, ito ang giit ni Former Governor Aurelio “Oyie” Umali sa huling pagdinig ng Committee on Good Government and Public Accountability kaugnay ng quarry operations sa Nueva Ecija. Nanindigan ang dating Gobernador na sinunod ng Pamahalaang Panlalawigan ang batas base sa nilalaman ng Section 46 sa pagbibigay ng Sand and Gravel permit sa mga quarry operators sa probinsya. Binigyang diin ni Atty. Umali ang pagkakaiba ng dalawang batas, sa section 43 nakalista ang mga mineral at kinakailangang dumaan sa PMRB o Provincial Mining Regulatory Board bago mabigyan ng quarry permit ng Punong Panlalawigan habang sa section 46 ay tumutukoy sa Sand and Gravel permit at walang itinatakdang proseso. Bunsod ng conflict o pagkakaiba ng interpretasyon sa dalawang batas ang Provincial Government at DENR ay isang permitee sa Nueva Ecija ang nagsumite ng Declaratory Relief sa Regional Trial Court upang mabigyang linaw ang mga naturang batas. Sinegundahan naman ni Congressman Rey Umali si Atty. Umali kaugnay ng Declaratory Relief dahil tanging ang Korte lamang aniya ang makapagbibigay ng tamang interpretasyon ng batas at hindi ang judiciary o ang naturang komite. Dagdag nito, mas mainam na hintayin na lamang ang desisyon ng Korte upang malaman kung mayroon nga bang nilabag sa batas at kung sa tingin ng Komite ay mayroong pagkukulang sa batas at sa panuntunan nito ay dapat na magkaroon ng pag-amyenda dito. Tinatanong kasi ni Congressman Arnolfo Teves ang DENR kung may pananagutan ba at kakasuhan ba ang Pamahalaang Panlalawigan ng Nueva Ecija dahil walang ECC o Environmental Compliance Certificate ang mga quarry permittee sa probinsya. Paglilinaw ni DENR Regional Director 7 Gilbert Gonzales, base sa Presidential Decree 1586 walang criminal provision para sa violation sa ECC kundi administrative case lamang na may kaakibat na penalty o suspension ng ECC. Kung sakaling nagresulta ng hindi maganda ang quarry operation tulad ng polusyon sa tubig ay doon maaaring magfile ng criminal complaints gamit ang ibang batas. Ayon naman sa Section 108 ng Republic Act 7942 o Philippine Mining Act of 1995, na binasa ni Congressman Rey Umali, ang sinumang lumabag sa terms and conditions ng ECC na nakapagdulot ng pagkasira ng kalikasan ay maparurusahan ng anim na buwan hanggang anim na taong pagkakakulong o pagmumultahin ng 50, 000 hanggang 200, 000 pesos o maaari ding pareho depende sa magiging desisyon ng korte. Punto nito, kung walang ECC nangangahulugan na wala ding nilabag sa terms at conditions na nakapaloob sa Section 108, bagay na kinakailangan ng legal opinion kaya nararapat aniya na hayaan na ang korte na magpasya ukol dito. Komento naman ni Congressman Johnny Pimentel, hindi masasagot ng mga opisyal ng DENR kung dapat nga bang kasuhan ang probinsya, kaya suhestiyon nito na kumonsulta sa legal officers ng DENR upang matukoy kung karapat-dapat nga bang kasuhan ang probinsya.—Ulat ni Jovelyn Astrero

#2016PBIF - Key Quotes - Jeffrey Hardee: 'Caterpillar in the Philippines'

#2016PBIF - Key Quotes - Jeffrey Hardee: 'Caterpillar in the Philippines' 2016 Philippines Business & Investment Forum: Over the past five years, the Philippines has gone from being known as the “sick man” of Asia to the region’s stellar performer, lauded by international investors and analysts as one of the most promising countries for future growth and investment. As evidence, in 2013 the three major international credit rating agencies – Standard & Poor’s, Moody’s and Fitch - all raised the Philippines’ sovereign debt to an investment grade rating, the first time it has achieved this status. The country’s GDP grew at an average of 6.3 per cent from 2010-2014, the highest five-year average in the past 40 years. In order for the country to realize its potential over the next decade, the current consumer-driven expansion will have to change to investment-led growth. Although last year ́s $6.2 billion in foreign investment was the highest figure ever, more international investment is required in strategic areas such as infrastructure, manufacturing, energy, agriculture, education and healthcare. The Philippines Business & Investment Forum in New York will bring together influential leaders from the Filipino government and private sector, along with their U.S. and relevant international counterparts for an in-depth analysis of the Philippine economic and political situation and the opportunities it holds for investors, both in capital markets and in industry. Jeffrey J. Hardee, Executive Director Government & Corporate Affairs Asia Pacific, Caterpillar: Jeffrey Hardee has worked in Asia for over 25 years and currently serves on the Board of Governors of the American Chamber of Commerce in Singapore and the Board of the US-ASEAN Business Council. Prior to this, Hardee worked at Dell as Executive Director, Government Affairs, Asia Pacific. He led Dell’s policy work in the region and supported business units on business opportunities and strategy. He served on Dell’s Global Giving Council and was on the Board of the US Information Technology Office (USITO). Hardee also served as Vice President & Regional Director, Asia Pacific, Business Software Alliance (BSA). He directed BSA’s work on intellectual property, e-commerce and trade policy issues and managed BSA’s education and enforcement activities in the region. He spoke to the press regularly about software issues. Prior to this, Hardee worked for the Motion Picture Association (MPA) as Vice President, Asia-Pacific. He handled market access issues for theatrical, video and television distribution and led efforts on legislation to protect copyrights and promote e-commerce. Hardee began his career at the U.S. Department of Commerce (USDOC) as a Presidential Management Intern (PMI) and went on to head the Malaysia/Singapore/ Brunei desk and subsequently the Taiwan desk. His last position with USDOC was with the Foreign Commercial Service at the U.S. Embassy in Jakarta, Indonesia.

Economy of the Philippines
 
21:21
The Economy of the Philippines is the 40th largest in the world, according to 2013 International Monetary Fund statistics, and is also one of the emerging markets in the world. The Philippines is considered as a newly industrialized country, which has been transitioning from being one based on agriculture to one based more on services and manufacturing. According to the World Bank ICP 2011, the estimated 2011 GDP (purchasing power parity) was $543.7 billion. Goldman Sachs estimates that by the year 2050, the Philippines will be the 14th largest economy in the world, Goldman Sachs also included the Philippines in its list of the Next Eleven economies. According to HSBC, the Philippine economy will become the 16th largest economy in the world, 5th largest economy in Asia and the largest economy in the Southeast Asian region by 2050. Primary exports include semiconductors and electronic products, transport equipment, garments, copper products, petroleum products, coconut oil, and fruits. Major trading partners include the United States, Japan, China, Singapore, South Korea, the Netherlands, Hong Kong, Germany, Taiwan, and Thailand. The Philippines has been named as one of the Tiger Cub Economies together with Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand. It is currently one of Asia's fastest growing economies. However, major problems remain, mainly having to do with alleviating the wide income and growth disparities between the country's different regions and socioeconomic classes, reducing corruption, and investing in the infrastructure necessary to ensure future growth.
