Kinumpirma ni Budget Sec. Benjamin Diokno na dala-dala na ni Pangulong Rodrigo Duterte ang P3.767 trillion 2018 proposed national budget sa mismong araw ng State of the Nation Address (SONA) sa July 24.
Sinabi ni Sec. Diokno, ito ang kauna-unahan sa kasaysayan ng Pilipinas kung saan isusumite ng presidente ang budget proposal sa araw mismo ng SONA.
Ayon kay Diokno, layunin nitong mapaaga ang pagbusisi at pagkakapasa ng panukalang budget na krusyal sa “Build, Build, Build” program ng Duterte administration.
Pinakamalaki aniya sa alokasyon ay mapupunta sa edukasyon at infrastructure development.
“So that — why are we doing this early? This is the first time that we’re — the President plans to submit the budget on the day of the SONA itself okay, so that’s a first time in Philippine history.
And so, why are we doing this? So we can have an early start for 2018. So the 2018 proposed national budget, which we proposed and the President approved, has a total of P3.767 trillion, with the biggest allocation going to education and infrastructure development. Now this budget is consistent with President Duterte’s Build, Build, Build program to usher in the Golden Age of Infrastructure in the Philippines and his desire to develop the Filipino youth into an agile, competent workforce for the future. And as I said earlier, there will be a handout on this,” ani Diokno.
