Gov’t development plan thrust still on jobs, infra work

THE NEW Medium-Term Philippine Development Plan that will replace the one expiring this year will continue to focus on job generation and increased investment in infrastructure to provide safety nets for those who barely benefit from the country?s growth.

Socioeconomic Planning Secretary Cayetano W. Paderanga Jr. said the thrust of the development plan for 2011-2016 would be on inclusive growth.

?The plan will address the interests of those who are left behind [amid growth of the country?s economy],? said Paderanga, who is also director-general of the National Economic and Development Authority. ?We need to make sure that the vulnerable sectors are provided for? In that sense, government spending in the following years will be aimed at stimulating continued growth.?

Earlier this week, Paderanga said the Neda would push for the decentralized crafting of the new MTPDP, stressing the importance of inputs from regions outside Metro Manila.

He added that the Neda would spearhead the reorganization of the Regional Development Council (RDC) toward decentralized planning.

The country?s 80 provinces are grouped into 17 administrative regions, including the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao and the Cordillera Administrative Region.

The MTPDP for 2004-2010 focused on the creation of two million new jobs, as well as creating three million micro-enterprises.

Paderanga said representatives in the RDC will come from various sectors, such as farmers and fisherfolk, indigenous peoples, youth, women, children, workers, vulnerable groups, academe and business.

?It is vital that regional line agencies touch base with their respective central offices to provide the regional breakdown of national targets and the location of strategic priority projects in the regions,? he said.
