Guv: Let growth
reach poor, too
BY CARLA GOMEZ
Negros Occidental Gov. Alfredo Marañon Jr. yesterday said that, under the Aquino administration, the economy has greatly improved with renewed investor confidence in the country.
But he hopes the President, in his State of the Nation Address today, will outline ways in which the country’s phenomenal economic growth can be felt by the poorest of the poor, too.
At the same time, Marañon stressed that the work cannot be done by the President alone, he needs the people’s cooperation.
