No Quick Fix, Please

Senator Imee Marcos attends the virtual hearing by the Senate Committee on Basic Education, Arts, and Culture yesterday recently. It is to discuss the opening of classes for the school year 2020-21. She hopes that the new education system would be for the long haul and not just a quick fix.



Amending RA 7977 for the Long Haul

Senator Marcos clarifies to the officials of DepEd that the Senate is ready to amend the law. This is to defer the school opening. She reminds them that August is the start of the rainy season in the Philippines. The children’s safety is also the most important thing to consider during the pandemic. Will they be safe at school in August? Marcos also expresses apprehension that most school children might not be able to cope with online education. This is due to the lack of equipment and poor access to wifi.

The Internet Infrastructure is Not Ready

It is not certain yet that by August, the Department of Health can already assure the people that it is safe to hold classes at a social distancing arrangement. Therefore, online learning must be an alternative to the classroom session. However, the country’s internet infrastructure is not yet ready. In fact, most government websites crashed. These digital platforms are definitely not designed for millions of users, unlike Facebook. She strongly suggests coming up with a new system for the new normal and that is to speed up the digitization of the country’s education system.

Working quarantine # 1

President Duterte Eyes Selling Govt. Properties

While on quarantine, Senator Imee Marcos worked on three bills for the March 23 filing at the Senate. This is to make all the President’s realignment of funds constitutional. Marcos stresses on her quarantine #1 video that the the Philippines can have almost 0% interest loans. The IMF and the World Bank loan are readily available credit facilities of the country for the welfare of humanity. In fact, the Aquino administration took advantage of it. Until now, the $500 million loan in 2015 during remains questionable.



Senator Imee Marcos Discloses World Bank as Credit Facility

The World Bank recently approves US$500 million in financing to help strengthen the Philippine government’s efforts to address disaster risks. This is essential to efficiently respond and recover from natural disasters. The financing also supports urgent needs that the COVID-19 crisis brings forth to the country. In her scrutinizing the laws while on quarantine, the Senator mentions that the Philippines also has provisions for calamity funds. Therefore, it creates an impression that aside from the economic loans at unbelievably almost nothing interest rate, the Philippine administration seems to be legible to get open loans that correspond to the statements of the late President Ferdinand Marcos. In fact, the first-year interest fee has been waived. The credit term for 29 years is also enough for the country to recover plus a 10-year and a half grace period. A credit facility that healthy can definitely aid the country to recover quickly.

$500-million Loan from the WB Credit Facility

President Rodrigo Duterte made it a point to be transparent when it comes to money matters. However, it seems hard for the media to get the exact figures on the interest rate, credit term, and the reasons why the country receives favorable arrangements from WB. It is a known fact that the Work Bank borrows money from the economy and lend them to 3rd world countries or nations in need at a higher rate. To have an almost 0% interest for the Philippines can only pinpoint to some reserves that remain a secret perhaps until COVID-19.

No Doctor’s Clearance for Senator Imee Marcos to Attend the Congress’ Special Session

Zubiri, Marcos cold to Senate adopting House-OKd budget

Senator Imee Marcos No-Show at the Congress’ Special Session

Senator Imee R. Marcos’ physician advises her not to attend the Senate special session due to cough. This is to debate on and pass the proposed Bayanihan Act of 2020 authorizing the President to use unspent government finances. The aim is to resolve the negative effects of the coronavirus crisis. Earlier, she calls on the government not to be stingy on the provisions to the people who have no work no pay status. She is also thinking ahead on drawing resources to rebuild the economy after the coronavirus aftermath.



Go All Heart, All Out

The Senator said that the government should go “all heart, all-out” in funding the fight against COVID-19. She calls an emergency budget to be taken up in a special session of Congress. This is the most crucial investment in our country’s future, She said. Marcos, who chairs the Senate committee on economic affairs, has drawn up an emergency package of almost 750 billion pesos called Pag-ASA: Alaga, Sustento at Pag-Angat. This seeks immediate and sustained protection of health workers, provision of food and cash aid for marginalized communities, and stimulus packages to badly hit industries employing millions of workers.

The Economic Pitch of the Senator

Marcos plans to pitch the Pag-ASA emergency package in a Senate bill. This is due to her fear of public panic in the coming months if the government’s proposed emergency budget of only P200 billion is approved. Possible sources of the first P300 billion of the Pag-ASA emergency package can be squeezed from funds left over from the 2019 budget.

These are from calamity funds in the 2020 budget; intelligence and social funds of the Office of the President; PhilHealth’s emergency reserve fund; and contingency funds from various departments. Namely; education, agriculture, labor and employment, social welfare and development, and public works and highways, Marcos said.
