Roxas reacts on NNC hunger report

Wednesday, October 10, 2007 | posted in , , , | 0 comments

Senator Manuel “Mar” Roxas II on Monday challenged the government to fix the “disconnect” between the positive macro-economic indicators and the negative hunger level among the Filipinos.
There is a disconnect between the headline statistics: high peso rates, high GDP (gross domestic product), low interest rates; and people’s everyday experience of hunger and ‘sachet’ consumer pattern. There’s a disconnect between the economics on Ayala Avenue and the real economy,” he said.
Roxas was reacting to the report of the National Nutrition Council (NNC) that there was a 50-percent increase in those who experienced hunger from the second quarter of the year (14.7 percent) to the third quarter (21.5 percent).
