The Department of Budget and Management (DBM) is seeking the approval of an additional P23.34 billion as supplemental budget for 2015, which the agency said would be spent mainly on post-“Yolanda” rehabilitation as well as preparations for the 2015 hosting of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Summit.
When it comes to helping communities devastated last year by Super Typhoon “Yolanda,” there is no room for competition.
