According to the world Bank. Like the key factors on fighting corruption in different areas of government. But its still a lot of hard work and many changes need to be done to make sure that this would continue and that the country would finally achieve prosperity to all people. Although it took a long time but i just hope this time the development would be irreversible.

When I heard that in the news, I was not really excited. To me we could only feel the economy getting better when the number of jobless Filipinos decreased. I mean so many of our fellowmen are jobless and dirt poor, they can't even feed their children. I just wish more jobs would be created this year. The filipinos don't need to stupid surveys or new title. They need jobs.

I stopped listening to the surveys when I heard the categories they put in. They don't consider people who are not actively looking for jobs "unemployed" hehehee.. Well, that's just stupid. Isn't it? Indeed, I'd be excited if I actually felt something out of those surveys and titles. Have a great mylot experience ahead!

Well surveys only become significant if it will have an impact on the lives of the low income families . These people only want food for their families and some money for the education of their children.. But i agree that the philippine economy is far better today than years back then.

I have heard the same news back when the president was still FVR. Frankly, it is not being felt by a lot of people because those who needs to be corrected or even ousted for corruption still have some influence over the same organizations that they have power on. Also, if the strength of the economy is being evidenced by the stronger peso power, I don't think that is helping the OFWs and their families.
