    but clark being chosen as the central hub for our most expensive airport is really a good strategic move for all concerned, our country and the countries clamoring for open skies. why bec. it's in central luzon. it's in the center of everything. in 3-5 years from now, it will be in the center of then the entire northern luzon expressway network going as far as Ilocos to the north and Manila to the south and Subic/Bataan/Zambales to the west and I dont know about the eastern luzon part yet

    hehehe. Sierra Madre na po yata yun. Madaming provinces tinatamaan but very narrow and mountainous.

    Actually, mga 80 kilometers lang yung planong pacific gateway from Manila. Isa sana yan sa mga uunahing projects ni Sen. Angara kung naging Presidente sya.

    Now that the global wealthy have been burned with paper money I think, infrastructures as investment might be something they will be checking more intently.

    If only the Philippine constitution could be changed so that foreigners can own land, much more funds might come in.

    There's a strong chance they will since land ownership provides better protection for their investments and therefore greater incentive to do so.

    As to borrowing local money to fund their investment there should be rules to minimize this like those against thin capitalization, proof of inward remittance etc.

    Of course, kung tingin naman nila di sila kikita dito wala rin.

    losing momentum

    By The Associated Press | 26 Nov 2008 | 11:30 PM ET
    MANILA, Philippines - The Philippine economy grew a sluggish 4.6 percent in the third quarter, slumping from 7.1 percent last year, after being "damaged but not quite ravaged" by the global financial crisis, the government said Thursday.

    Industry grew at a faster rate of 7.1 percent from 6.6 percent a year earlier, but the services sector the linchpin of the economy with a 49.2 percent share of gross domestic product contracted 3.7 percent.

    "The Philippine economy has been damaged but not quite ravaged by the global financial turmoil and high oil prices," the National Statistical Coordination Board said in a statement.

    Good enough given the situation. We have to be thankful in some sense our economy is backwater so we didn't really got caught big time by the complexities of the financial problem in the developed nations.

    Cebu bank declares "HOLIDAY" hahahahaha

    MANILA, Philippines -- A local bank has declared a “bank holiday,” surprising its depositors, according to a radio report.
    Radio dzMM said the Philippine Countryside Rural Bank in Cebu made the announcement after the Supreme Court ruled last week that the financial institution had an “undercapitalization.”
    The report added that the bank was also experiencing a “power struggle” but did not elaborate.
    No other details are available as of posting time.
