Former House Speaker Alan Peter Cayetano has called on potential presidential candidates in the 2022 elections to join the government in developing the country’s five-year economic plan.

“Sa five-year plan, inaalok natin ang lahat ng mga presidentiable, [at] lahat ng eksperto sa tourism, sa finance, sa transportation, [at] sa agriculture to join us in forming a five-year plan,” Cayetano said in a press conference on June 18.

(We are offering the opportunity to join us in forming a five-year plan to all presidentiables and experts, especially in the fields of tourism, finance, transportation, and agriculture.)

He said he and his allies are looking into “neutral” and non-partisan government officials and leaders to lead the creation of the post-pandemic plan.

“I’m hoping that we can get a retired Supreme Court Chief Justice or an economist na kilala na isang academician, o kaya si Secretary Karl Chua ng NEDA. ‘Yan po ay hindi pulitiko, ‘yan ay non-partisan [at] napakatalinong tao. Kasama niya ‘yung economic team ever since,” he added.

(I am hoping that we can get a retired Supreme Court Chief Justice, a known economist and academician, or National Economic and Development Authority [NEDA] Secretary Karl Chua to convene the team. Secretary Chua is not a politician; he is non-partisan and is an intelligent person. He has been with the economic team ever since.)

In the same press conference, he said he and his allies will propose the inclusion of an annual distribution of the P10,000 cash assistance for a minimum of three years in the post-pandemic plan to aid Filipino families in their recovery.

The said proposal would be similar to the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program of the government.

“Doable itong P10,000, and we will push [this] doon sa five-year plan,” he noted.

(The proposed distribution of the P10,000 cash assistance is doable, and we will push for this in the five-year plan.)###

Cayetano, hinikayat ang mga presidentiable na makiisa sa paggawa ng five-year economic plan

Hinikayat ni dating House Speaker Alan Peter Cayetano ang mga presidentable sa susunod na taon na makiisa sa paggawa ng five-year economic plan ng bansa.

“Sa five-year plan, inaalok natin ang lahat ng mga presidentiable, [at] lahat ng eksperto sa tourism, sa finance, sa transportation, [at] sa agriculture to join us in forming a five-year plan,” sabi ni Cayetano sa isang panayam sa midya noong Hunyo 18.

Ayon sa kanya, tinitingnan nila ang posibilidad na isang “neutral” at non-partisan na opisyal o lider sa gobyerno ang mamuno para sa pagbuo ng nasabing post-pandemic plan.

“I’m hoping that we can get a retired Supreme Court Chief Justice or an economist na kilala na isang academician, o kaya si Secretary Karl Chua ng NEDA. ‘Yan po ay hindi pulitiko, ‘yan ay non-partisan [at] napakatalinong tao. Kasama niya ‘yung economic team ever since,” dagdag ni Cayetano.

Sa nasabing panayam, sinabi rin ni Cayetano na magmumungkahi sila na isama ang taunang pamamahagi ng P10,000 ayuda bawat pamilya sa loob ng tatlong taon sa nasabing post-pandemic plan. Ito ay upang tulungan umahon ang pamilyang Pilipino mula sa pandemya.

Ayon sa kanya, ang panukala ay katulad ng Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program ng gobyerno.

“Doable itong P10,000, and we will push [this] doon sa five-year plan,” sabi ni Cayetano.#
