Senator Roxas urges gov't to provide more info on JPEPA

Monday, November 12, 2007 | posted in , , , , | 0 comments

Senator Mar Roxas called on the Executive Branch to get its act together in providing the Senate with sufficient information on the clear benefits and potential drawbacks that the country would face in relation to the Japan-Philippines Economic Partnership Agreement (JPEPA).

"The Senate is not in the business of data-extraction. That is the job of the executive branch and it makes us wonder how come baseline data regarding tariff lines and well-defined programs for safety nets are not being properly presented in all of five hearings," Roxas said.
