Education, infrastructure top 2014 budget


Reflecting its commitment to advance rapid, inclusive and sustainable socio-economic development in the country, the Aquino administration is directing the largest portions of the proposed 2014 budget toward education and infrastructure development. The Department of Budget and Management (DBM) is seeking a P336.9-billion allocation for the Department of Education and P213.5 billion for the Department of Public Works and Highways. “In keeping with the Aquino administration’s development agenda, we’re devoting even more resources toward reinforcing the country’s public education system and infrastructure base. These strategic investments in the development of our human capital and our economic services are designed not only to strike at poverty’s root, but also to ensure the continued acceleration of our growth momentum,” DBM Secretary Florencio Abad said.
