PH growth recovery seen to start in Q3

first_imgImprovement in government expenditures is expected to boost domestic growth to the six percent level starting in the third quarter of 2019 after the slowdown in the first half, says economist Michael Ricafort. WIKIMEDIA Economic managersbelieve that this catch-up spending program would allow the domestic economy topost better results in the second half of this year and meet the full-yeargrowth target. MANILA– Improvement in government expenditures is expected to boost domestic growthto the six percent level starting in the third quarter of 2019 after theslowdown in the first half, according to an economist of a local bank. With governmentspending growth posting an upsurge last September, Ricafort forecasts somepickup in growth in both the third and fourth quarters “possibly above +6percent.” In a reply toe-mailed questions, Michael Ricafort of Rizal Commercial Banking Corporation(RCBC) said the hike in government expenditures “could already reflectgovernment’s catch up spending, especially on major infrastructure projectsfinally taking effect.” The governmentthus implemented a catch-up spending program, which tasked both the Departmentof Public Works and Highways and the Department of Transportation particularlyto hasten the implementation of their respective infrastructure projects. Growth furtherslowed to 5.5 percent in the second quarter, bringing the first half output to5.5 percent, lower than the government’s six-seven percent target band. Following the delayin the approval of this year’s national budget, which was only signed into lawmid-April, domestic growth, as measured by gross domestic product (GPD),decelerated to 5.6 percent in the first quarter of the year from 6.3 percent inthe last quarter of 2018. “Thus, the GDPgrowth target of at least six percent for 2019 remains achievable, providedthat the rapid increase in government spending, especially the catch upspending on major infrastructure projects, is sustained for the rest of the year,”he said.  (PNA)last_img
