It is true that the Philippines is enjoying a healthy economic growth under the leadership of our present president. It did well also under President Ramos. Those news about our economic growth will not come out without basis. Before the government can claim it, they must have supporting documents to prove it. The economiists and businessmen understand this language immediately because, it is the lifeblood of their businesses' growth.
