Davao City, Philippines - Presidential aspirant, Mayor Rodrigo Duterte once again boldly shares his vision on how he will address the economic problems of the country if he gets elected.
Speaking in a video interview with Radio DZRJ, Duterte stated his answers by saying that to create jobs, we must create factories, we must build industries. To achieve industrialization, Duterte wants the country have our own and strengthen the steel industry. An example he cited wherein the country exports the ore and then buying the finished product which is steel thus compounding the cost. He further added, that everything we see around are made of steel . From here,we can build up our military, produce our own cars etc and create what we need in the country instead of importing at an added cost.
He cited the examples of our more successful neighbors like South Korea and Taiwan simply because they have their own steel industry to rely on.
Furthermore, the tough-talking Mayor also said that he welcomes investors and promise to fix our laws and come up with an economic codes to simplify doing business in the country.
He hopes to attract more foreign investors by offering more than what other countries offered to the capitalists. And he admits that the main problem of the country is that our laws are very complicated and convoluted and Duterte promise to do something about it by making our laws simple, believable and protects the investments of the foreign investors.
Mayor Rodrigo said that in Davao City, he implemented a 72-hour rule to expedite the processing of business permits or clearances. If the individual tasked to handle such matter failed to finish the job on time, it is automatically forwarded to his table and the assigned individual would have a lot of explaining to do why he or she sits on the job.
In the event that there is a problem with bureaucratic red tapes on the concerned agency, Mayor Duterte revealed he does not hesitate to implement a total overhaul of the concerned agency for the sake of having a well-oiled bureaucracy.
He cited the example of the local police. Mayor Duterte explained that if he got wind of a policeman involved in illegal trade, his policy is, the fault of one is the fault of all.
Mayor Duterte hopes to replicate the formula of Hong Kong and Singapore, wherein foreign investors could build their factories or business on the island that would cater their needs without compromising Philippine laws
The investors will be given a free hand in configuring the island that would match their needs to become profitable, he added.
Mayor Duterte hopes the jobs created would be enough reason for the Filipinos stay within our borders and not go somewhere far from their families.
He also explained how to lower food cost, helping the poor to borrow money from banks and promote values on education.
On top of these Duterte underlines that in order for us to achieve the change, we must work together and follow the law.
“Let me tell our countrymen that I cannot do it alone. We have to do this together,” Duterte said. “We have enough laws but we do not implement or follow the law.”
“Right now, following the law is only an option for Filipinos. It should be a must,” he stressed.

Kung bibigyan lang ng chance we will be a Great Nation again. Siya na talaga ang Divine Leader ng Pilipinas.Romans 13:1-313 Let every person be loyally subject to the governing (civil) authorities. For there is no authority except from God [by His permission, His sanction], and those that exist do so by God’s appointment.2 Therefore he who resists and sets himself up against the authorities resists what God has appointed and arranged [in divine order]. And those who resist will bring down judgment upon themselves [receiving the penalty due them].3 For civil authorities are not a terror to [people of] good conduct, but to [those of] bad behavior. Would you have no dread of him who is in authority? Then do what is right and you will receive his approval and commendation.Bakit ba ito denelete?
