    Trade deficit = imports - exports = -9.4 - (-12.3) = +2.9

    That means we import more than we export, so its a trade deficit and not a surplus. How can that be good?

    For you to claim that december imports lessened you have to compare it to november number

    Sir, those are percentage growth rates and not absolute figures.

    i did not say the trade balance went from deficit to surplus

    humina lang ang imports pero deficit parin

    less imports = less demand for $$$ which is good for PHP

    Philippine Peso Surprises to Become Asia’s Best Currency

    The Philippine peso has defied a yawning current-account deficit to emerge as Asia’s best-performing currency in February. And it may continue to surpass its peers.

    Peso bulls say record remittances, rising investment and a buoyant domestic economy will propel further gains in the currency. Easing inflation could also lend a hand, as higher real yields burnish the appeal of Philippine bonds.

    basta huwag mag rate cut ang BSP

    Feb inflation report March 6

    if lower than January, BSP may be tempted to ease monetary policy going forward

    the scandalous and callous sec ben diokno is the new bsp governor according to preliminary news reports.

    and w/ that whimsical choice, the bsp has now been politicized by a president who's consolidating his hold on a gov't w/c is steadily getting an endless stream of brickbats .
