On the assumption that you heard/read the SONA of the President last month (July 2009), identify at least 3 areas related to Human Resource Mangement and explain how these areas can improve our quality of life


“Today, we are creating wealth by developing the BPO and tourism sectors as additional engines of growth. Electronics and other manufactured exports rise and fall in accordance with the state of the world economy. But BPO remains resilient. With earnings of $6 billion and employment of 600,000, the BPO phenomenon speaks eloquently of our competitiveness and productivity. Let us have a Department of ICT. ” said by the president of the Philippines.


- This statement shows one area on Human Resource. As said on the above statement the president of the Philippines speaks about the development on our tourism sector which provides additional productivity to our country. As we all know, Philippines is facing financial crisis specially those people who are unemployed and still looking for a job for a living. According to the statement of the president there is a 600,000 employment for those who needs job. This is such a big help regarding on employment crisis. It helps to improve the quality of life we have. We all know that employment crisis also exist on different countries but of course these is such a big improvement on our country as we all know we belong to a third world country.

“Sa Rent Control Law ng 2005 hanggang 2008, di pwedeng lumampas ng 10% ang pagtaas ng upa taun-taon. Ayon sa kakapirma nating batas may isang taong moratorium, tapos hanggang 7% lamang ang maaaring pagtaas. Salamat, Kongreso.” By the president.

- One of the main problems in our country is housing crisis. We all know that today there are a lot of low cost housing which are built for the people who can’t afford on paying expensive houses. This law can really help the people and can improve there quality of living. By this law it helps them to minimize there budget on paying high rated rent payment. That’s why there are a lot of squatters here in the Philippines because of their lack of capacity to pay there own houses. A lot of people living under a bridge, near rivers, canals and many to mention.



• “Our educational system should make the Filipino fit not just for whatever jobs happen to be on offer today, but also for whatever economic challenge life will throw in their way….”

- This help to strengthen the existing institutions in the development of higher level scientists and engineers. Continuing tasks include training high-level scientists and engineers in cutting edge technologies by HEIs, supporting the priority thrusts in science and technology as enunciated in the National Science Technology Plan: 2002-2020, enhancing human capital for science, technology and innovation (STI) for absorption into the world of work, strengthening ICT-based Education by providing sound policy and funding mechanisms, infusing more investments in S&T and engineering research in the identified Centers of Excellence and Centers of Development, and providing support to the operationalization of the National Science Complex and Technology Incubation Park in UP Diliman. Goals for Improving Technical Vocational Education. The employability of those who undergo tech-voc training programs needs to be increased by developing their skills and competencies to meet the requirements of industry and retrain workers to respond to new technology or changes in industry processes. Workers must be enabled also to compete for overseas employment opportunities through the accreditation of technical vocational courses. There is likewise a need to continue with the harmonization of Tech-voc and Higher Education through the Ladderized Education Program (LEP), improvement of trainers’ qualification, and accreditation of tech-voc courses. Financing Education. While increasingly significant budgets to the education agencies have been allocated, there is still a need for a more innovative approach in financing the education sector, especially in the higher education segment. Improving Education in ARMM. Policies and guidelines that would harmonize and synchronize the ARMM Educational System with the National Education System at all levels are currently being reviewed. Some of these may require amendment of legislation from Congress. Strengthening Academe-Industry Linkages. The need to improve the job-skills matching program and strengthen the initiatives for the Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) industry has been seriously noted. Current efforts of government agencies at coordinating with the Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry, and the Business Processing Association of the Philippines (BPAP) on this endeavor need to be sustained. Internationalizing of Education (Education Plus Program). With the goal of positioning the country as an Education Center in the Asia Pacific, a technical working group has been formed composed of representatives from the government and private sectors. CHED is currently undertaking a survey on international linkages/partnerships/twinning programs of universities and colleges, the results of which should be followed through. Developing a National Educational Research, Evaluation and Testing System (NERETS). With the aim of establishing an independent/autonomous, highly credible, and respectable national assessment and research agency for education, a technical working group has already been created, which has conducted a series of discussions and consultation with testing providers, specialists and other stakeholders. Findings and perspectives generated from these activities should establish the steps required to develop and implement the System.



“Mula noong 2001, Nanawagan tayo ng mas murang gamot. Nagbebenta na tayo ng mga gamot na kalahating presyo sa libu-libong Botika ng Bayan at Botika ng Barangay sa maraming dako ng bansa. Our efforts prodded the pharmaceutical companies to come up with low-cost generics and brands like RiteMed. I supported the tough version of the House of the Cheaper Medicine Law. I supported it over the weak version of my critics. The result: the drug companies volunteered to bring down drug prices, slashing by half the prices of 16 drugs.”


- This also improves our quality of life by protecting and promoting the health of the populace, particularly the poor when they require medical/hospital services, the President promoted the National Health Insurance Program. Depending on the program, financing for the members’ benefits come from the national government in partnership with other stakeholders like the local government units, employers and even the members themselves. Around 79.56 million Filipinos or 86% of the 92 million population were enrolled as of May 2009, of which 18.32 million are indigents. PhilHealth’s other members consist of those in the employed sector (37.24 million beneficiaries); individually-paying members (14.86 million); non-paying members or the pensioners and retirees (700,000); and, the Overseas Workers (8.44 million Filipinos). Premium collections from the members have increased steadily over the years, from PhP8.6B in 2000 to PhP25.6B in 2008. In the first quarter of 2009, premium collections reached almost PhP6 billion, 10% more than the collection in the same period from the previous year.Benefit claims of the patients also increased substantially from PhP6.8 billion in 2000 to more than PhP18.2 billion in 2008, with the claims for drugs and medicines comprising the largest chunk of said claims. For the 1st Quarter of 2009, PhP4.5 billion has been released for the claims of the beneficiaries.

On July 27, 2009, our President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo gave her annual State of the Nation address or better known as SONA 2009.

Information about SONA

The State of the Nation Address Filipino: Talumpati sa Kalagayan ng Bansa, abbreviated SONA) is an annual event here in the Republic of the Philippines, in which the President of the Philippinesreports on the status of the nation, normally to the resumption of a joint session of the Congress (the House of Representatives and the Senate). This is a duty of the President as stated in Article VII, Section 23 of the 1987 Constitution: “ The President shall address the Congress at the opening of its regular session. He may also appear before it at any other time.”

These are the areas related to Human Resource Management was stated by our President Arroyo during her SONA:

1. Education for all
Education in its broadest sense is any act or experience that has a formative effect on the mind, character, or physical ability of an individual. In its technical sense education is the process by which society deliberately transmits its accumulated knowledge, skills and values from one generation to another through institutions.

Education is central to development and a key to attaining the Millennium Development Goals. It is one of the most powerful instruments for reducing poverty and inequality and lays a foundation for sustained economic growth.
• Expand and improve comprehensive early childhood care and education, especially for the most vulnerable and disadvantaged children.

• Ensure that by 2015 all children, particularly girls, those in difficult circumstances and those belonging to ethnic minorities, have access to and complete, free and compulsory primary education of good quality.

• Ensure that the learning needs of all young people and adults are met through equitable access to appropriate learning and life-skills programs.

• Achieve a 50 per cent improvement in levels of adult literacy by 2015, especially for women, and equitable access to basic and continuing education for all adults.

• Eliminate gender disparities in primary and secondary education by 2005, and achieve gender equality in education by 2015, with a focus on ensuring girls' full and equal access to and achievement in basic education of good quality.

• Improve all aspects of the quality of education and ensure excellence of all so that recognized and measurable learning outcomes are achieved by all, especially in literacy, numeracy and essential life skills.

2. Health Insurance
Health insurance is insurance that pays for medical expenses. It is sometimes used more broadly to include insurance covering disability or long-term nursing or custodial care needs. It may be provided through a government-sponsored social insurance program, or from private insurance companies. It may be purchased on a group basis (e.g., by a firm to cover its employees) or purchased by individual consumers. In each case, the covered groups or individuals pay premiums or taxes to help protect themselves from high or unexpected healthcare expenses. Similar benefits paying for medical expenses may also be provided through social welfare programs funded by the government.

The Administration is focused on providing increased health services by (1) expanding the health insurance coverage under PhilHealth; (2) making available affordable, appropriate and quality medicines through the establishment of Botika ng Barangays/Botika ng Bayan (BnBs); and, (3) providing access to health services.

To protect and promote the health of the populace, particularly the poor when they require medical/hospital services, the President promoted the National Health Insurance Program. Depending on the program, financing for the members’ benefits come from the national government in partnership with other stakeholders like the local government units, employers and even the members themselves.

3. Transportation
To ensure that the future Internet infrastructure develops in a way that maximizes the democratic potential of the Net and encourages a decentralized, open architecture.

The basic facilities, services, and installations needed for the functioning of a community or society, such as transportation and communications systems, water and power lines, and public institutions including schools, post offices, and prisons.

On the assumption that you heard/read the SONA of the President last month (July 2009), identify at least 3 areas related to Human Resource Mangement and explain how these areas can improve our quality of life. (2000words)


Here are the sample areas related to the Human Resource Management...


On Reforms....


-->Our reforms gave us the resources to protect our people, our financial system and our economy from the worst of shocks that the best in the west failed to anticipate.
They gave us the resources to extend welfare support and enhance spending power.

As a nation, country's people was the one of its responsible resourcesto uplift the goals and develpment of a country.
So by those reforms proclaimed, it is really a big help and hope for those people who wants change and improvement of the country in the near future.

On microfinance loans.....


"Nakinabang ang pitong milyong entrepreneurs sa P165 billion na microfinance loans."

"Nakinabang ang sandaan libo sa emergency employment ng ating economic resiliency plan. Kasama natin ngayon ang isa sa kanila, si Gigi Gabiola. Dating household service worker sa Dubai, ngayon siya ay nagtatrabaho sa DOLE."

Nakinabang ang isang milyong pamilya sa programang pabahay at palupa, mula Pag-Ibig, NHA, community mortgage program, certificates of lot award, at saka iyong loan condonation."

Considering that a family was the foundation unit of a country's deveploment. Without a family, economic stability will not step up and debelop as expected to be. Hoping that this microfinance will be a benefit for the family and for all the people.

On Proper policies lowered interest rates...


Proper policies lowered interest rates, which lowered costs to business and consumers.
"—anticipating an unexpected global food crisis. Nakagawa tayo ng libu-libong kilometro ng farm-to-market roads at, kasama ng pribadong sector, natubigan ang dalawang milyong ektarya. Mga Badjao gaya ni Tarnati Dannawi ay tinuruan ng modernong mariculture. Umabot na sa P 180,000 ang kinita niya mula noong nakaraang taon. Congratulations, Tarnati. We will help more fisherfolk shift to fish farming with a budget of P1 billion."

On the market grows economies. A free market, not a free-for-all...

To that end, we improved our banking system to complement its inherent conservatism. The Bangko Sentral has been prudent. Thank you, Governor Tetangco, for being so effective. The BSP will be even more effective if Congress will amend its Charter.

We worked on the Special Purpose Vehicle Act, reducing non-performing loans from 18% to 4% and improving loan-deposit ratios.

Our new Securitization Law did not encourage the recklessness that brought down giant banks and insurance companies elsewhere and laid their economies to waste. In fact, it monitors and regulates the new-fangled financial schemes. Thank you, Congress.

We will work to increase tax effort through improved collections and new sin taxes to further our capacity to reduce poverty and pursue growth. Revenue enhancement must come from the Department of Finance plugging leaks and catching tax and customs cheats. I call on tax paying citizens and tax paying businesses, help the BIR and stop those tax cheats.

With this new policies and interest rates implemented by the government, people willl enjoy their rights and duties, crimes and other restricted doings will lessen and of course many people can start a new business and living through the help of loans by the provision of the authorized and trusted banks and associations.

EDUCATION


" Kaya namuhunan tayo ng malaki sa edukasyon at skills training.

Ang magandang edukasyon ay susi sa mas magandang buhay, the great equalizer that allows every young Filipino a chance to realize their dreams.

Nagtayo tayo ng 95,000 na silid-aralan, nagdagdag ng 60,000 na guro, naglaan ng P1.5 billion para sa teacher training, especially for 100,000 English teachers."


Education is the key to success. The quality of human resource of a nation is easily judged by the number of literate population living in it. This is to say that education is a must if a nation aspires to achieve growth and development and more importantly sustain it. This may well explain the fact that rich and developed nations of the world have very high literacy rate and productive human resource. In fact these nations have started imparting selective training and education programs so as to meet the new technical and business demands of the 21st century.

In fact, certain professionals like doctors and dentists, are obliged to follow mandatory lifelong learning. This is done so that they keep pace with all the research and development done in the medical field. These professionals not only needs to update themselves about these developments, but also learn new techniques of practice and perfect old ones. Learning about patient management and the delivery of care is rather a continuing process. Since these professionals, especially doctors have huge moral responsibility towards the patients and society in general, continuing education is a must for them.

The importance of education cannot be neglected by any nation. And in today’s world, the role of education has become even more vital. It is an absolute necessity for economic and social development of any nation.


HOUSING



"Sa Rent Control Law ng 2005 hanggang 2008, di pwedeng lumampas ng 10% ang pagtaas ng upa taun-taon. Ayon sa kakapirma nating batas may isang taong moratorium, tapos hanggang 7% lamang ang maaaring pagtaas. Salamat, Kongreso."


Housing contributes significantly to economic growth given its importance in generating employment and promoting entrepreneurial activities. It also promotes social and political stability by expanding the class of property owners who have a stake and interest in preserving our society.



The impact of a vigorous housing program on the national economy is highly significant with its multiplier effects on other industries, especially on manufacturing and construction. It stimulates employment by enlarging the various activities of other service-related groups.


HEALTH


"Mula pa noong 2001, nanawagan na tayo ng mas murang gamot. Nagbebenta tayo ng gamot na kalahating presyo sa libu-libong Botika ng Bayan at Botika ng Barangay sa maraming dako ng bansa. Our efforts prodded the pharmaceutical companies to come up with low-cost generics and brands like RiteMed. I supported the tough version of the House of the Cheaper Medicine law. I supported it over the weak version of my critics. The result: the drug companies volunteered to bring down drug prices, slashing by half the prices of 16 drugs. Thank you, Congressmen Cua, Alvarez, Biron, Locsin.

Pursuant to law, we are placing other drugs under a maximum retail price. To those who want to be President, this advice: If you really want something done, just do it. Do it hard, do it well. Don’t pussyfoot. Don't pander. And don’t say bad words in public.

Sa health insurance, sakop na ang 86% ang ating populasyon. "


“Health is Wealth”. This maxim is so familiar that often times is taken for granted by everyone. Only in time of crisis that health seems suddenly the only wealth we can claim
Healthy body begets healthy mind. In line with the school’s dream of shaping its learners into the best possible form we can be.

On the assumption that you heard/read the SONA
of the President last month (July 2009), identify at least 3 areas
related to Human Resource Mangement and explain how these areas can
improve our quality of life. (2000words)


Education

“Ang magandang edukasyon ay susi sa mas
magandang buhay, the great equalizer that allows every young Filipino a
chance to realize their dreams”, president Arroyo.


The best thing that a human can do and a human he/she will be proud to
shoutout loud is the Education, yes it is true just like what Pres.
Arroyo said that Education is the great equalizer that allows ever youg
Filipino a chance to realize their dreams... only Education can make
people equal.. only edcuation cannot be buy by a money.. Education is
soo very important, it's improve the social quality of life and it's
way that can a human being achieve their dreams and set of goals by the
power of education. Education can treasure for a long long time, a
treasure that could not be bought by any one else even the riches human
being in the world.. this is the only thing that can we show that we
pilipino are the top of the world.

in its broadest sense is any act or experience that has a formative effect on the mind, character or physical ability of an individual. In its technical sense education
is the process by which society deliberately transmits its accumulated
knowledge, skills and values from one generation to another.

Microfinance

“Nakinabang ang pitong milyong entrepreneurs sa P165 billion in microfinance loans.

Nakinabang
ang sandaan libo sa emergency employment ng ating economic resiliency
plan. Kasama natin ngayon ang isa sa kanila, si Gigi Gabiola.
(applause) Dating household service worker sa Dubai, ngayon siya ay
nagtatrabaho sa DOLE. Good luck, Gigi”


refers to the provision of financial services to low-income clients, including consumers and the self-employed.

More broadly, it refers to a movementthat envisions “a world in which as many poor and near-poor households
as possible have permanent access to an appropriate range of high
quality
financial services, including not just credit but also savings,
insurance, and fund transfers. Those who promote microfinance generally
believe that such access will help poor people out of poverty.


  1. Poor people need not just loans but also savings, insurance and money transfer services.

  2. Microfinance must be useful to poor households: helping them raise
    income, build up assets and/or cushion themselves against external
    shocks.

  3. “Microfinance can pay for itself.”
    Subsidies from donors and government are scarce and uncertain, and so
    to reach large numbers of poor people, microfinance must pay for itself.

  4. Microfinance means building permanent local institutions.

  5. Microfinance also means integrating the financial needs of poor people into a country’s mainstream financial system.

  6. “The job of government is to enable financial services, not to provide them.”

  7. “Donor funds should complement private capital, not compete with it.”

  8. “The key bottleneck is the shortage of strong institutions and managers.”Donors should focus on capacity building.

  9. Interest rate ceilings hurt poor people by preventing microfinance
    institutions from covering their costs, which chokes off the supply of
    credit.

  10. Microfinance institutions should measure and disclose their performance – both financially and socially.



Cheaper Medicine

“Mula pa noong 2001, nanawagan na tayo ng mas
murang gamot. Nagbebenta tayo ng gamot na kalahating presyo sa
libu-libong Botika ng Bayan at Botika ng Barangay sa maraming dako ng
bansa. Our efforts prodded the pharmaceutical companies to come up with
low-cost generics and brands like RiteMed. I supported the tough
version of the House of the Cheaper Medicine law (applause) over the
weak version of my critics. (applause) The result: the drug companies
volunteered to bring down drug prices, slashing by half the prices of
16 drugs. Thank you, Congressmen Cua, Alvarez, Biron and Locsin.“


Cut the Cost of the all medicines drug.. in this emplementation a lot
of people benefits in this improvement mostly people benefits are in a
middle and low level in community. it makes athe medicine affordable
for the poor people in a society. well it helps a lot in our and
improves a lot in our quality in life, it's gives more opportunity to
other seek family who are striving for their lives..

ensure the availability of affordable medicines
by requiring drug outlets to carry a variety of brands for each drug,
including those sourced from "parallel importation," to give the
consumer more choices.

* Microfinance

“Nakinabang ang pitong milyong entrepreneurs sa P165 billion in microfinance loans.Nakinabang ang sandaan libo sa emergency employment ng ating economic resiliency plan. Kasama natin ngayon ang isa sa kanila, si Gigi Gabiola. (applause) Dating household service worker sa Dubai, ngayon siya ay nagtatrabaho sa DOLE. Good luck, Gigi”

NAPC MICROFINANCE UNIT


Pursuant to the mandates stipulated in Title II of Republic Act 8425, the National Anti-Poverty Commission, through the Microfinance Unit (MFU), works toward the development of an enabling policy environment for the microfinance industry and ensure that microfinance services reach their target clientele -- the poor. The MFU was created as a separate unit of the NAPC Secretariat in June 2004 by virtue of Special Order No. 2004-22. Since then the Unit has made remarkable gains in the monitoring, policy review, gender mainstreaming, replication of best practices and educating the poor in microfinance.

NAPC’s Thrusts and Functions in Microfinance:

RA 8425 confers the following thrusts and functions of NAPC towards the development of the microfinance sector:

* Development of a policy environment, especially in the area of savings generation
* Rationalization of existing government programs for credit/guarantee
* Utilization of existing government financial entities for provision of MF products/ and services for the poor
* Promotion of mechanisms necessary for implementation of MF services, including indigenous MF practices

The law also mandates NAPC to monitor the utilization of the People’s Development Trust Fund (PDTF) and perform the following activities:

* Source funds for the establishment of/and augmentation of PDTF
* Recommend the accreditation of organizations/institutions acting as resource partners for institutional development
* Ensure that validation/monitoring activities are conducted for PDTF-funded projects
* Promote research and development work on livelihood & MF technology, publications/communications programs for poor beneficiaries


*Education

“Our educational system should make the Filipino fit not just for whatever jobs happen to be on offer today, but also for whatever economic challenge life will throw in their way….”
“Ang magandang edukasyon ay susi sa mas mabuting buhay, the great equalizer that allows every young Filipino a chance to realize their dreams…
"

Nagtayo tayo ng 95,000 na silid-aralan, nagdagdag ng 60,000 na guro, naglaan ng P1.5 billion para sa teacher training, especially for 100,000 English teachers. Isa sa pinakamahirap na Millennium Development Goals ay iyong Edukasyon para sa Lahat pagdating ng 2015, na nangunguhulugang lahat ng nasa edad ay nasa grade school. Halos walang bansang nakakatupad nito. Ngunit nagsisikap tayo. Binaba natin ang gastos ng pagpasok. Nagtayo tayo ng mga eskwela sa higit isang libong barangay na dati walang eskwelahan, upang makatipid ng gastos ng pasahe ang mga bata. Tinanggal natin ang miscellaneous fees para sa primary school.
It seeks to mainstream early childhood development in basic education. Our children are our most cherished possession. In their early years we must make sure they get a healthy start in life. They must receive the right food for a healthy body, the right education for a bright and inquiring mind—and the equal opportunity for a meaningful job.For college admission, the Task Force recommends mandatory Scholastic Aptitude Tests. It also recommends that private higher education institutions and state universities and colleges should be harmonized. It also recommends that CHED will oversee of local universities and colleges. For professions seeking international recognition—engineering, architecture, accountancy, pharmacy and physical therapy—it recommends radical reform: 10 years of basic education, two years of pre-university, three years of university…

Hindi na kailangan ang uniporme sa mga estudyante sa public schools.

We assist financially half of all students in private high schools.We have provided 600,000 college and post-graduate scholarships. One of them Mylene Amerol-Macumbal, finished Accounting at MSU-IIT, went to law school, and placed second in the last bar exams–the first Muslim woman bar topnotcher. Congratulations…In technical education and skills training, we have invested three times that of three previous administrations combined. Narito si Jennifer Silbor, isa sa sampung milyong trainee. Natuto siya ng medical transcription. Now, as an independent contractor and lecturer for transcriptions in Davao, kumikita siya ng P18,000 bawat buwan. Good job.The Presidential Task Force on Education headed by Jesuit educator Father Bienvenido Nebres has come out with the Main Education Highway towards a Knowledge-Based Economy. It envisions seamless education from basic to vocational school or college



Our educational system should make the Filipino fit not just for whatever jobs happen to be on offer today, but also for whatever economic challenge life will throw in their way….”



*Health


“Mula noong 2001, Nanawagan tayo ng mas murang gamot. Nagbebenta na tayo ng mga gamot na kalahating presyo sa libu-libong Botika ng Bayan at Botika ng Barangay sa maraming dako ng bansa. Our efforts prodded the pharmaceutical companies to come up with low-cost generics and brands like RiteMed. I supported the tough version of the House of the Cheaper Medicine Law. I supported it over the weak version of my critics. The result: the drug companies volunteered to bring down drug prices, slashing by half the prices of 16 drugs.”


The focus is on people friendly projects that have benefited people across the country whatever their political orientation. One prime example of this has been PHILHEALTH, over 79 million Filipino’s are enrolled in many provinces the program has been modified local support added and has been giving people a good chance a health care subsidized by Government.

The clearest examples of its application of universal basic health services provided can be found in two places in particular one a bailiwick of support for the President the other the home of the political opposition.

Over in Bukidnon, where the President just was is a clear example of how local government tapping government resources has been able to achieve near universal participation in the government health care for those earning less than 10,000 pesos a month.

The local government lead by Governor Jose Zubiri, has implemented a program of enrolling nearly everyone in the province in PHILHEALTH. It has given the province a world class health program that is generally free for medical services for those living just above and below the poverty line.
Bukidnon is a prime example.

I had a chance to visit and see the hospital programs myself two months ago when another Jose, this one Alvarez from Palawan brought over 300 barangay leaders though his JCA foundation to Bukidnon from Palawan the barangay captains were amazed to see a province that has less income than their own have medical care that exceeds their wildest dreams.


*Benefits for OFWs

" Sa hirap at ginhawa, pinapatatag ang ating bansa ng ating Overseas Filipinos. Iyong padala nilang $16 billion noong isang taon ay record. Itong taon, mas mataas pa.

I know that this is not a sacrifice joyfully borne. This is work where it can be found -- in faraway places, among strangers with different cultures. It is lonely work, it is hard work.

Kaya nagsisikap tayong lumikha dito sa atin ng mga trabahong maganda ang sahod, so that overseas work will just be a career choice, not the only option for a hard-working Filipino.

Meanwhile, we should make their sacrifices worthwhile. Dapat gumawa tayo ng mas epektibong proteksyon at pagpapalawak ng halaga ng kanilang pinagsikapang sweldo. That means stronger consumer protection for OFWs investing in property and products back home. Para sa kanila, pinapakilos natin ang Investors Protection Task Force."


Under the Arroyo administration, the country has been experiencing its worst jobs crisis, which has been further aggravated by the wave of massive displacements due to the impact of the global financial and economic crisis. Unemployment rate since 2001 has remained at more than 11% per year with about 4 million workers jobless every year. Annual unemployment rate under the Aquino to Estrada administrations was between 9 to 10% while the number of unemployed was between 2 to 3 million a year.

Consequently, Mrs. Arroyo has also been the most aggressive in exporting Filipino workers since the domestic job creation under her pro-globalization policies have been greatly undermined. Every year, OFW deployment under the Aquino to Estrada administrations was between 361,000 to 693,000 but under Arroyo, the figure ballooned to more than 1 million a year.

In fact, Mrs. Arroyo is the only Philippine president to categorically declare labor export as an official job creation policy of government. Administrations since Marcos have considered (at least on paper) labor export as “temporary” or “secondary” option for Filipino workers.

I.) Trade and Investment
In the trade and investments sector, we envisioned to raise investments
to 25-28% of GDP by 2010 from 19.5% in 2003. Financial support to
public infrastructure shall be pursued through greater private sector
participation. We shall likewise continue to aim for a minimum 10%
annual growth in the export sector, even though the Government has
met the target to increase exports for food and services in 2006.
Towards this end, we have accomplished the following:
Promoted entrepreneurship
From 2001 to April 2008, microfinance loans to the low and middle
income men and women who want to start their own businesses have
reached P102 billion or 29 times more than the P3.49 billion we started
with in 2001.

• The Government’s initiative to enhance the SME Unified Lending
Opportunities for National Growth (SULONG) more than quadrupled
the P26.76 billion released in 2003 to P130.24 billion as of April 2008.
New jobs generated therein almost tripled from 200,783 in 2003 to
590,462 as of April 2008.
• Despite the setbacks in the global economy that affected our small
exporters, the One Town, One Product (OTOP) Program performed
respectably. Beefed up by DTI’s strong marketing program, earnings
by small exporters went up by 14%, from US$92.23 million in 2006 to
US$105 million in 2007. Local economic activity likewise markedly
improved, with OTOP domestic sales surging by 53%. Investments
inflow also improved by 23% supporting 70,733 jobs.
Since its inception in late 2004, OTOP had generated a total of P5.60
billion in investments, supported 212,960 jobs, earned US$283
million in exports and P5.88 billion in domestic sales, and assisted
17,149 small and medium enterprises.
Table 5. OTOP PERFORMANCE: 2004-2007
Performance Indicators
2004 2005 2006 2007 Total
Investments (P Million)
565.04 814.09 1,891.34 2,330.53 5,601
Employment
1,431 70,439 70,357 70,733 212,960
Exports
(US$ Million)
0.17 85.19 92.23 105.40 283.0
Domestic Sales (P Million)
1,302.40 1,808.25 2,773.79 5,884.44
SMEs Assisted 4,396 5,968 6,785 17,149

II.Completed the P10.6 million La Trinidad Fruit and Vegetable
Minimal Processing and Packaging Plant on 30 December 2008,
which shall start operating in July 2008. Dole Philippines
Incorporated, the project’s operator, is in the process of recruiting
and training personnel for the plant. The project shall contribute
into increasing the shelf-life and marketability of the upland
vegetables, lessen post harvest losses, and the Government’s food
security program.

III. Completed the P96.83 million Dingalan Port Development
Project in Aplaya, Aurora on 30 January 2008, which includes
port development and construction of a passenger terminal
building. It is expected to boost productivity of the agriculture,
aquatic, and mining industries in the Dingalan area and nearby
municipalities.


Talking about the Trade and Investment it will gives a big impact to the human resources because it will give a lot of opportunities to the workers so that the jobs opportunities will grow.

Assignment 8
Fighting can’t help us, it can’t even solve a problem, and it could just worsen it. So why fight, right? But I, myself, can understand whatever that conflict happening between the NPA and the government. I also is not that preferred to the government though I’m not also as harsh like the NPA people. But whatever they are doing with their victims, it would be God who could only punish them.

“Sa hirap at ginhawa, ang ating overseas Filipinos ay pinapatatag ang ating bansa. Iyong padala nilang $16 billion noong isang taon ay record. Itong taon, mas mataas pa….

I know that this is not a sacrifice joyfully borne. This is work where it can be found—in faraway places, among strangers with different cultures. It is lonely work, it is very hard work….

Kaya nagsisikap tayong lumikha ng mga trabahong maganda ang bayad dito sa atin so that overseas work will just be a career choice, not the only option for a hardworking Filipino in search of a better life…

Meanwhile, we should make their sacrifices worthwhile. Dapat gumawa tayo ng mga mas malakas na paraan upang proteksyonan at palawak ang halaga ng kanilang pinagsikapang sweldo. That means stronger consumer protection for OFWs investing in property and products back home. Para sa kanila, pinapakilos natin ang Investors Protection Task Force….”

EDUCATION

• MDG performance indicators measure access to primary education – whether children who should be
in school are actually in school (i.e. elementary participation rate, cohort survival rate, primary
completion rate and literacy rate of individuals 15-24 years old).
• MDG performance indicators for primary education showed a declining trend from 2000 to 2006.
• While updated statistics for 2007-2009 show slight improvement in the MDG performance indicators
from 2006 data, the general assessment remains: there is a “low probability” for the Philippines to
fully attain universal primary education by 2015.
Participation rate
o Target: 93.0% participation rate in SY 2010-2011; all primary school-age children should be enrolled in primary school by 2015
o Status:
_ 85.12% participation rate as of SY 2008-2009 (85 out 100 primary school-age children were actually in primary school)
_ this is worse than the participation rate in SY 2000-2001 (96.77%)
_ target is not likely to be attained by 2015 Cohort survival rate
o Target: 78.0% cohort survival rate at the elementary level in SY 2010-2011; all Grade 1 pupils in the same batch will make it to the Grade 6 level by 2015
o Status:
_ 75.39% cohort survival rate as of SY 2008-2009 (75 pupils out of a cohort of 100 Grade 1
pupils reached the Grade 6 level)
_ an improvement from the cohort survival rate in SY 2000-2001 (69.46%)
o target for SY 2010-2011 is likely to be attained, but it remains to be seen whether it can meet its 2015 target


Primary completion rate
o Target: all Grade 1 pupils in the same batch will finish schooling up to the Grade 6 level by
2015
o Status:
_ 73.28% primary completion rate as of SY 2008-2009 (73 pupils out of a cohort of 100
Grade 1 pupils finished Grade 6)
_ this is a slight improvement from the completion rate in SY 2000-2001 (68.68%), but
it is still off-target
Literacy rate of 15-24 years old
o Target: 100% literacy rate among 15- to 24-year olds by 2015 (simple literacy = ability to read
and write; functional literacy = ability to read, write and compute)
o Status:
_ latest available literacy rate data for comparison are for years 1994 and 2003
_ the simple literacy rate for this age group was worse in 2003 compared to the 1994 rate
_ the functional literacy rate for this age group was better in 2003 compared to than
1994 rate, but it is still off-target
Efforts to keep kids in school
The Arroyo administration implemented conditional programs in an effort to keep kids in school.
o Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program: cash grants to poorest of the poor households; P3,000
for one school year or P300/month per child for educational expenses, maximum of 3
children per household, but with certain conditions like children must enroll in school and
attend classes at least 85% of the time
o Food for school program: started in 2004; daily ration of 1kg rice for poor pre-school and
Grade 1 pupils for 120 school days
An assessment of other MTPDP indicators shows both gains and setbacks in
President Arroyo’s education promises.
• Aside from the MDG performance indicators, MTPDP also measures progress in basic education in
terms of classrooms, teachers, textbooks and computers.
• Gains include surpassing the target number of classrooms to be built per school year; classroompupil
ratio in the elementary level; teacher-pupil/student ratio; textbook-pupil/student ratio in some
subjects; and the provision of computers in high schools.
• Misses include classroom-student ratio in the high school level, and textbook-pupil/student ratio in
some subjects in both the elementary and high school level.

Classrooms
o Target: build 6,000 classrooms every school year and maintain classroom-pupil/student ratio
at an average of 1:50
o Status:
_ target number of classrooms built was surpassed every year from 2004-2008
_ DepEd has achieved the target classroom-pupil ratio (elementary level) since 2004-
2005; classroom-pupil ratio improved in 2008 from 1:50 to 1:45 at double-shifting
_ DepEd remains off-target in terms of classroom-student ratio (secondary level)
_ classroom shortage still exists in some areas; many schools implement multi-shifting,
meaning two or more sets of pupils/students use a classroom
_ DepEd acknowledges that classroom shortage is a perennial problem due to the
continuing increase in student population and destruction brought about by natural
and man-made calamities
Teachers
o Target: maintain a 1:50 teacher-pupil/student ratio
o Status:
_ target maintained for both elementary and secondary levels since SY 2004-2005
_ ratio may be higher in some remote areas due to high population density and
teachers’ preference to be stationed in urban centers and safer places
Textbooks
o Target: maintain a 1:1 textbook-pupil/student ratio in public elementary and secondary
schools
o Status: (as of SY 2009-2010)
_ 1:1 ratio for both elementary and secondary levels in English and Makabayan
textbooks
_ Science – 1:2 for elementary, 1:1 for secondary
_ Mathematics – 1:3 for both levels
_ Filipino – 1:2 for elementary, 1:3 for secondary
Computers
o Target: All public high schools shall have computers by 2010
o Status: In its 2009 Report Card, DepEd claims that all public high schools have been
provided with a computer package. Only about a third have internet access

Education budget and expenditures
• Education expenditures' share to GDP during the Arroyo administration is only at 2-3%; this is
below the international standard set by UNESCO, which is 6% of GDP.
• DepEd got P158.2 billion in new appropriations as per GAA 2009. Eighty percent of this amount
(P126.6 billion) is set aside for salaries.
• Education expenditures account for half of the government's expenditures on social services.
• Although education spending has seen an increase in nominal value over the years, its share to
total expenditures for social services has shown a declining trend in recent years as the Arroyo
administration increased spending in social security, welfare and employment.
• The government spends more on debt servicing than it does on education.
o The DepEd budget is the second biggest item in the national budget, next to debt service
(P252.55 billion in 2009)– this, despite a Constitutional provision stating that education
must be given the highest budgetary priority.
o Education expenditures account for 13-16% of total government expenditures; debt
servicing accounts for 21-31%.

Proper policies lowered interest rates (in terms of basic needs)

Because of our reforms, we have been able to sell NFA rice is P18.25 per kilo to increase prices even out from P17.50 to P30 due to lack of supply in the world. While, for the first time, we made above the purchase of rice from farmers, from P17 to P11.

Because of our reforms, we have been able to invest in food-anticipating an unexpected global food crisis. We made thousands of kilometers of farm-to-market roads and, with the private sector, watered two million hectares. The Badjao like Tarnati Dannawi were taught modern mariculture. P reached the 180,000 he earned from last year. Congratulations, Tarnati. We will help more Fisherfolk shift to fish farming with a budget of P1 billion.

Because of increasing family naman daw hungry, we a new investor in our hunger mitigation program in the past have proven effective. Help me here, Congress.

Since 2001, we called that a less expensive drug. We sell medicine to half price on thousands of Botika ng Bayan and the Barangay Botika in many parts of the country. Our efforts prodded the pharmaceutical companies to come up with low-cost generics and brands like RiteMed. I supported the tough version of the House of the Cheaper Medicine law. I supported it over the weak version of my critics. The result: the drug companies volunteered to bring down drug prices, slashing by half the prices of 16 drugs. Thank you, Congressmen Cua, Alvarez, Biron, Locsin.

Pursuant to law, we are Placing other drugs under a maximum retail price. To those who want to be President, this advice: If you really want something done, just do it. Do it hard, do it well. Do not pussyfoot. Do not pander. And do not say bad words in public.

PostSubject: Assignment 8: SONA HR related   Mon Oct 12, 2009 5:11 am

On the assumption that you heard/read the SONA of the President last month (July 2009), identify at least 3 areas related to Human Resource Mangement and explain how these areas can improve our quality of life.

“Towards that vision, we made key reforms. Our economic plan centers on putting people first. Higit sa lahat, ang layunin ng ating patakaran ay tulungan ang masisipag na karaniwang Pilipino. New tax revenues were put in place to help pay for better healthcare, more roads, and a strong education system. Housing policies were designed to lift up our poorer citizens so they can live and raise a family with dignity. Ang ating mga puhunan sa agrikultura ay naglalayong kilalanin ang ating mga magsasaka bilang backbone ng ating bansa, at bigyan sila ng mga modernong kagamitan to feed our nation and feed their own family.”
“In the last four years tourism almost doubled. It is now a $5 billion industry.”
“Our reforms gave us the resources to protect our people, our financial system and our economy from the worst of shocks that the best in the west failed to anticipate.”
“Nakinabang ang sandaan libo sa emergency employment ng ating economic resiliency plan. Kasama natin ngayon ang isa sa kanila, si Gigi Gabiola. Dating household service worker sa Dubai, ngayon siya ay nagtatrabaho sa DOLE.”
“Dahil sa ating mga reporma, nakaya nating ibenta ang bigas NFA sa P18.25 per kilo kahit tumaas ang presyo sa labas mula P17.50 hanggang P30 dahil sa kakulangan ng supply sa mundo. Habang, sa unang pagkakataon, nagawa nating itaas ang pamimili ng palay sa mga magsasaka, P17 mula sa P11.”..
“The market grows economies. A free market, not a free-for-all.”
“Nagtayo tayo ng 95,000 na silid-aralan, nagdagdag ng 60,000 na guro, naglaan ng P1.5 billion para sa teacher training, especially for 100,000 English teachers.”.
Sa hirap at ginhawa, pinapatatag ang ating bansa ng ating overseas Filipinos. Iyong padala nilang $16 billion noong isang taon ay record. Itong taon, mas mataas pa.
“Kaya nagsisikap tayong lumikha dito sa atin ng mga trabahong maganda ang sahod, so that overseas work will just be a career choice, not the only option for a hard-working Filipino.
Meanwhile, we should make their sacrifices worthwhile. Dapat gumawa tayo ng mas epektibong proteksyon at pagpapalawak ng halaga ng kanilang pinagsikapang suweldo. That means stronger consumer protection for Overseas Filipino Workers investing in property and products back home. Para sa kanila, pinapakilos natin ang Investors Protection Task Force.
Hindi ako nag-aatubiling bisitahin ang ating taong bayan at kanilang mga host sa buong mundo – mula Hapon…hanggang Brazil, mula Europa at Middle East hanggang sa American Midwest, nakikinig sa kanilang mga problema at pangangailangan, inaalam kung paano sila matutulungan ng ating pamahalaan—-by working out better policies on migrant labor, or by saving lives and restoring liberty.
Pagpunta ko sa Saudi, pinatawad ni Haring Abdullah ang pitong daang OFW na nasa preso. Pinuno nila ang isang buong eroplano at umuwi kasama ko.
Mula sa ating State Visit sa Espanya, it has become our biggest European donor. At si Haring Juan Carlos ay nakikipag-usap sa ibang mga bansa para sa ating mga namomoblemang OFW. Ganoon din si Sheikh Khalifa, ang Prime Minister ng Bahrain.
Pagpunta ko sa Kuwait, Emir Al-Sabah commuted death sentences. We thank all our leaders, our world leaders, for showing compassion to our overseas foreign workers. Salamat.
Our vigorous international engagement has helped bring in foreign investment. Net foreign direct investments multiplied 15 times during our administration. Kasama ng ating mga Together with our OFWs, they more than doubled our foreign exchange reserves. Pinalakas ang ating piso at naiwasan ang lubhang pagtaas ng presyo. They upgraded our credit because while the reserves of our peers have shrunk this past year, ours reserves grew by $3 billion.
Our international engagement has also corrected historical injustice. The day we visited Washington, Senator Daniel Inouye successfully sponsored benefits for our veterans as part of America’s stimulus package.
I have accepted the invitation of President Obama to be the first Southeast Asian leader to meet him at the White House, later this week.
That he sought us out testifies to our strong and deep ties.
High on our agenda will be peace and security issues. Terrorism: how to meet it, how to end it, how to address its roots in injustice or prejudice—and first and always how to protect lives.
We will discuss nuclear non-proliferation. The Philippines will chair the review of the nuclear weapons non-proliferation Treaty in New York in May 2010. The success of the talks will be a major diplomatic achievement for us.
There is a range of other issues we will discuss, including the global challenge of climate change, especially the threat to countries with long coastlines. And there is the global recession, its worse impact on poor people, and the options that can spare them from the worst.
In 2008 up to the first quarter of 2009 we stood among only a few economies in Asia-Pacific that did not shrink. Compare this to 2001, when some of my current critics were driven out by people power. Asia was surging but our country was on the brink of bankruptcy.
Since then, our economy posted uninterrupted growth for 33 quarters; more than doubled its size from $76 billion to $186 billion. The average GDP growth from 2001 to the first quarter of 2009 is the highest in 43 years.
Bumaba ang bilang ng mga nagsasabing mahirap sila sa 47% mula 59%. Maski lumaki ang ating populasyon, nabawasan ng dalawang milyon ang bilang ng mahihirap. GNP per capita rose from a Third World $967 to $2,000. Lumikha tayo ng walong milyong trabaho, an average of a million a year, much, much more than at any other time.
In sum: 1. We have a strong economy and a strong fiscal position to withstand global shocks.
2. We built new modern infrastructure and completed unfinished ones.
3. The economy is more fair to the poor than ever before.
4. We are building a sound base for the next generation.
5. International authorities have taken notice that we are safer from environmental degradation and man-made disasters.
As a country in the path of typhoons and in the Pacific Rim of Fire, we must be prepared as the latest technology permits to anticipate natural calamities when that is possible; to extend immediate and effective relief when it is not. The mapping of flood- and landslide-prone areas is almost complete. Early warning, forecasting and monitoring systems have been improved, with weather tracking facilities in Subic, Tagaytay, Mactan, Mindanao, Pampanga.
We have worked on flood control infrastructure like those for Pinatubo, Agno, Laoag, and Abucay, which will pump the run off waters from Quezon City and Tondo flooding Sampaloc. This will help relieve hundreds of hectares in this old city of its age old woe.
Patuloy naman iyong sa Camanava, dagdag sa Pinatubo, Iloilo, Pasig-Marikina, Bicol River Basin, at mga river basin ng Mindanao.
The victims of typhoon Frank in Panay should receive their long-overdue assistance package. I ask Congress to pass the SNITS Law.
Namana natin ang pinakamatagal na rebelyon ng Komunista sa buong mundo.
Si Leah de la Cruz isa sa labindalawang libong rebel returnee. Sixteen pa lang siya nang sumali sa NPA. Naging kasapi sa regional White Area Committee, napromote sa Leyte Party Committee Secretary. Nahuli noong 2006. She is now involved in an LGU-supported handicraft livelihood training of former rebels. We love you, Leah!
There is now a good prospect for peace talks with both the Communist Party of the Philippines and the MILF, with whom we are now on ceasefire.
We inherited an age-old conflict in Mindanao, exacerbated by a politically popular but near-sighted policy of massive retaliation. This only provoked the other side to continue the war.
In these two internal conflicts, ang tanong ay hindi, “Sino ang mananalo?” kundi, bakit pa ba kailangang mag-laban ang kapwa Pilipino tungkol sa mga isyu na alam naman nating lahat na di malulutas sa dahas, at mareresolba lang sa paraang demokratiko?
There is nothing more that I would wish for than peace in Mindanao. It will be a blessing for all its people, Muslim, Christian and lumads. It will show other religiously divided communities that there can be common ground on which to live together in peace, harmony and cooperation that respects each other’s religious beliefs.
At sa lahat ng dako ng bansa, kailangan nating protektahan ang ating mga mamamayan kontra sa krimen’ — in their homes, in their neighborhoods, in their communities. How shall crime be fought? With the five pillars of justice, including crime fighters. We call on Congress to fund more policemen on the streets.
Real government is about looking beyond the vested to the national interest, setting up the necessary conditions to enable the next, more enabled and more empowered generation to achieve a country as prosperous, a people as content, as ours deserve to be.
The noisiest critics of constitutional reform tirelessly and shamelessly attempted Cha-Cha when they thought they could take advantage of a shift in the form of government. Now that they feel they cannot benefit from it, they oppose it.
As the seeds of fundamental political reform are planted, let us address the highest exercise of democracy, voting!
In 2001, I said we would finance fully automated elections. We got it, thanks to Congress.
At the end of this speech I shall step down from this stage, but not from the Presidency. My term does not end until next year. Until then, I will fight for the ordinary Filipino. The nation comes first. There is much to do as head of state—to the very last day.
A year is a long time. Patuloy ang pamumuhunan sa tinatawag na three E’s ng ekonomiya, environment at edukasyon. There are many perils that we must still guard against.
A man-made calamity is already upon us, global in scale. As I said earlier, so far we have been spared its worst effects but we cannot be complacent. We only know that we have generated more resources on which to draw, and thereby created options we could take. Thank God we did not let our critics stop us.
As the campaign unfolds and the candidates take to the airwaves, I ask them to talk more about how they will build up the nation rather than tear down their opponents. Give the electorate real choices and not just sweet talk.
Meanwhile, I will keep a steady hand on the tiller, keeping the ship of state away from the shallows some prefer, and steering it straight on the course we set in 2001.
Ang ating taong bayan ay masipag at maka-Diyos. These qualities are epitomized in someone like Manny Pacquiao….Manny trained tirelessly, by the book, with iron discipline, with the certain knowledge that he had to fight himself, his weaknesses first, before he could beat his opponent. That was the way to clinch his victories and his ultimate title: ang pinakadakilang boksingero sa kasaysayan. Mabuhay ka, Manny!
However much a President wishes it, a national problem cannot be knocked out with a single punch. She must work with the problem as much as against it, turn it into a solution if she can.
There isn’t a day I do not work at my job or a waking moment when I do not think through a work-related problem. Even my critics cannot begrudge the long hours I put in. Our people deserve-a-government that works just as hard as they do.
A President must be on the job 24/7, ready for any contingency, any crisis, anywhere, anytime.
Everything right can be undone by even a single wrong. Every step forward must be taken in the teeth of political pressures and economic constraints that could push you two steps back-if-you flinch and falter. I have not flinched, I have not faltered. Hindi ako umaatras sa hamon.
And I have never done any of the things that have scared my worst critics so much. They are frightened by their own shadows.
In the face of attempted coups, I issued emergency proclamations just in case. But I was able to resolve these military crises with the ordinary powers of my office. My critics call it dictatorship. I call it determination. We know it as strong government.
But I never declared martial law, though they are running scared as if I did. In truth, what they are really afraid of is their weakness in the face of this self-imagined threat.
I say to them: do not tell us what we all know, that democracy can be threatened. Tell us what you will do when it is attacked.
I know what to do:
As I have shown, I will defend democracy with arms when it is threatened by violence; with firmness when it is weakened by division; with law and order when it is subverted by anarchy; and always, I will try to sustain it by wise policies of economic progress, so that a democracy means not just an empty liberty but a full life for all.
I never expressed the desire to extend myself beyond my term. Many of those who accuse me of it tried to cling like nails to their posts.
I am accused of misgovernance. Many of those who accuse me of it left me the problem of their misgovernance to solve. And we did it.
I am falsely accused, without proof, of using my position for personal profit. Many who accuse me have lifestyles and spending habits that make them walking proofs of that crime.
We can read their frustrations. They had the chance to serve this good country and they blew it by serving themselves.
Those who live in glass houses should cast no stones. Those who should be in jail should not threaten it, especially if they have been there.
Our administration, with the highest average rate of growth, recording multiple increases in investments, with the largest job creation in history, and which gets a credit upgrade at the height of a world recession, must be doing something right, even if some of those cocooned in corporate privilege refuse to recognize it.
Governance, however, is not about looking back and getting even. It is about looking forward and giving more—to the people who gave us the greatest, hardest gift of all: the care of a country.
From Bonifacio at Balintawak to Cory Aquino at EDSA and up to today, we have struggled to bring power to the people, and this country to the eminence it deserves.”

Those some of the thing discussed or said by the president that is related to the Human Resource Management. Being a president, you are managing a very huge group of people and a very good example of Human Resource Management. Therefore some of things above said by the president can be relate to HR. those things can improve our quality of life by helping first ourselves before other people.

PostSubject: SONA 2009: HRM   Wed Oct 14, 2009 11:01 am

The following are the areas were Pres. Arroyo tackled the issue about the Human Resource Management.
SONA 2009




1. Science and Technology Human Resource Development Programs

Arrow PhP3.194 Billion was allotted in 2001-2009 to support 25,392 scholars under the Specialized Secondary Program of the Philippine Science High School. Of these scholars, 5,817 (22.9%) students have already graduated in SY 2000-2001 to SY 2008-2009.

Arrow Provided scholarship grants to 87,562 college and post-graduate students leaning towards the Natural Sciences and Mathematics with a total budget of PhP3.097 Billion from 2001-2009.

2. Entrepreneurship/MSME Development.
As of 2007, micro-, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) comprised 99.66% of the total establishments in the country. Given the significant role of MSMEs in the country’s development, the Arroyo Administration committed to provide credit, technology and marketing support for three million MSMEs and empower existing SMEs to generate additional employment through increased lending and promotion. With the launching of the SME Development Plan under President Arroyo in 2004, the government implemented various SME development programs such as financing, marketing and promotion, human resource development, product development, and advocacy, integrated into one enterprise development cycle.

Arrow Small Unified Lending Opportunities for National Growth (SULONG)
The SME Unified Lending Opportunities for National Growth (SULONG), established in 2003, simplified the lending procedures and guidelines for SME financing. The program features lowered and standardized interest rates and transaction fees, relaxed financial hurdles, uniform loan documentation, and relaxed collateral requirements.

The SULONG released PhP167.96 billion to 146,451 SME accounts from 2004 to May 2009, six (6) times more than the PhP26.76 billion released in 2003. These supported 2.5 million jobs, 30% of which or 750,337 were new jobs. Of this number, PhP73.24 billion worth of loans were released to 95,597 new/unique SME accounts/borrowers from 2004 to April 2009.

Arrow Microfinance
Government Finance Institutions (GFIs)/Government Owned and Controlled Corporations (GOCCs). From 2001 to first quarter of 2009, around PhP165 billion in microfinance loans have been released to more than 6.9 million microfinance clients for their livelihood activities. This amount is about 46 times more than the PhP3.49 billion that was provided in 2001.

From 2004-2009, some 2.6 million new jobs have been created, surpassing already by about 30% the 2 million new jobs targeted through microfinance until 2010.
The Microfinance Lending Program for Government Employees. A total of PhP2.55 billion in loans was released to 183 government associations and cooperatives from 2007 to 2008.

Arrow One Town, One Product (OTOP)
To support local enterprises, promote entrepreneurship and create jobs, the One Town, One Product (OTOP) Program was launched in 2004 as a priority program of the government consistent with the 2004-2010 Medium Term Philippine Development Plan. The Program offers a comprehensive assistance package which includes business counseling, training, product design and development, and marketing, among others.

From 16 regional model OTOPs in 2004, a total of 1,353 municipalities and 129 cities are now active participants in the program. OTOP has assisted 29,639 MSMEs from 2004 to March 2009. For the same period, OTOP has generated 312,118 in employment, US$417 million in export sales, and PhP9.99 billion in domestic sales.

Arrow Small Enterprise Technology Upgrading Program (SETUP)
For more focused programs of assistance to MSMEs, the Small Enterprise Technology Upgrading Program (SETUP) of the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) was launched in 2002 to enhance the competitiveness of MSMEs through technological interventions. (see details in Science and Technology section)

Arrow Other MSME Accomplishments
Exclamation Human Resource Development through SME Centers. From 2001 to 2008, business development services were provided in 84 provincial SME Centers. Eighty-eight (88) DTI-Business Counselors and 35 participants from partner LGUs and other agencies were trained to enhance their capability in providing business development services.
Exclamation Community-based Enterprises. A focused program targeting community-based enterprises (CBEs) was initiated to establish and strengthen clusters, such as communities and cooperatives, linked to anchor firms to become a reliable supply base for export of indigenous material-based products. The program infuses interventions in the areas of skill and business/management trainings, consultancy services and product design, among others.
Exclamation MSME Advocacy. To promote entrepreneurship, the advocacy campaigns were aggressively carried out by utilizing the media particularly radio, print, internet and various infomercials. Partnership with the private sector on advocacy campaign for MSME development has been intensified and synchronized under the banner of Go Negosyo.

To demonstrate MSMEs’ social payback role as well as its position in hunger and poverty alleviation, the President provided an assistance of PhP10 million to the Benguet State University (BSU) for the establishment of the Benguet Vegetable Processing Center and the commercialization of veggie noodles. She also directed MSME agencies to provide credit assistance to the project.
To date, the first floor of the facility has been completed and is fully operational. It has developed squash and other veggie-based noodle variants (e.g., malunggay, carrots). The project is also transferring the veggie noodle technology to other small-scale noodle processors and the private sector.
Through the production of affordable and nutritious food alternatives, the project hopes to contribute to the fight against hunger and malnutrition.

Exclamation Barangay Micro Business Enterprises (BMBEs). Signed into law on 13 November 2002, Republic Act (RA) 9178 or the Barangay Micro Business Enterprise (BMBE) Act encourages the formation and growth of BMBEs through rationalization of bureaucratic restrictions and granting of incentives, among others. The law exempts all BMBEs from income taxes and fees arising from the operations of the enterprise and exemption from the coverage of the minimum wage law. DOF released its Department Order 17-04 giving further guidelines on this matter. To date, 960 cities/municipalities have participated in the program.

Exclamation Magna Carta for MSMEs. On 23 May 2008, the President signed into law RA 9501 or the Magna Carta for MSMEs which aims to promote entrepreneurship and support the development of MSMEs through more coordinated government services and other benefits for MSMEs. RA 9501 makes credit more accessible to entrepreneurs by increasing from 8% to 10% the mandatory allocation of a lending institution’s loan portfolio for MSMEs, and imposing more penalties for non-compliance with this mandatory credit allocation. The law’s implementing rules and regulations were issued as DTI Department Administrative Order No. 09, series of 2008.

Exclamation Credit Information System Act. RA 9510 or the Credit Information System Act was signed by the President on 31 October 2008. The said law provides for a comprehensive credit information system for the collection and dissemination of accurate information on credit and credit-related activities of all entities participating in the financial system. This will address the need for reliable information on the credit standing and track record of borrowers to facilitate the decisions of lenders, thereby improving access to credit of borrowers.

3. Industries.
Under the Business Development Program (BDP) of the Arroyo Administration, opportunities were channeled for businesses and growth by developing further the priority industries identified in the Medium Term Development Plan. These priority products/sectors include: 1) processed food and beverages; 2) marine products; 3) organic, herbal and natural products; 4) mineral products; 5) home-style and living; 6) fashion; 7) construction materials; Cool motor vehicle (parts, accessories and assembly); 9) electronics; 10) ICT services; 11) logistics services and 12) health and wellness.

The Science and Technology Human Resource Development Programs of Pres. Arroyo is really help me because, as of now I am the beneficiary of the scholarship that the administrative had given. In this area, there are many Filipinos can go to school and have their college education by the help of the scholarship. When the Filipino people is educated, it makes us improved the quality of life.

The Entrepreneurship/MSME Development was Pres Arroyo was tackled. This program that the President was accomplished also helps us because of many jobs that the company was offering to the people. But when we see the reality, I saw many jobless people here in the Philippines. The other Filipinos were sacrificing their families and went to other country just to find a good job or even not good job at least a job. When we asked them why they need to do so, the answers are there are not enough jobs here in the Philippines. So, is really this program accomplished? Maybe some of this program was really helpful in the country all so to the Filipino as well.

The Industries was discus during SONA of President Arroyo was stated that under the Business Development Program (BDP) of the Arroyo Administration, opportunities were channeled for businesses and growth by developing further the priority industries identified in the Medium Term Development Plan.

Assignment 8
On the assumption that you heard/read the SONA of the President last month (July 2009), identify at least 3 areas related to Human Resource Management and explain how these areas can improve our quality of life. (2000words)
Due: September 7, 2009, 13:00hrs


“Towards that vision, we made key reforms. Our economic plan centers on putting people first. Higit sa lahat ang layunin ng ating mga patakaran ay tulungan ang masipag na karaniwang Pilipino. New tax revenues were put in place to help pay for better healthcare, more roads, and a strong education system. Housing policies were designed to lift up our poorest citizens so they can live and raise a family with dignity. Ang ating mga puhunan sa agrikultura ay naglalayong kilalanin ang ating mga magsasaka bilang backbone ng ating bansa, at bigyan sila ng mga modernong kagamitan to feed our nation and feed their own family....”
As what did mention above that our economic plan centers on putting people first. With this statement those people who are poor they have given a chance to improve anything with the help of the economic plan. Of course with that, those people who don’t have a permanent house would be given a chance to have their own house so that they can live and raise a family with dignity. To those farmers they were also given a chance to use the new equipment for farming so that they can feed their own family and also our nation.


Noong isang taon, nabiyayaan ng tig-P500 ang mahigit pitong milyong tahanan bilang Katas ng Pantawid Koryente para sa mga small electricity users....
Iyong power rates, ang EPIRA natin ang pangmatagalang sagot. EPIRA dismantled monopoly. But minana natin iyong power purchase agreements under preceding administrations, so hindi pa natin makuha iyong buong intended effect. Pero happy na rin tayo, dahil isang taon na lamang iyan. The next generation will benefit from low prices from our EPIRA.  Thank you...

The government helps people to decrease the electricity bill rather than to increase because if the electricity bill will increase there will be a protest and it can cause strike. The government talked to the company so that their pal to decrease the payment for the electricity will be approved by the company. Even though we can’t get yet the intended effect we should be thankful and be happy because our government helps us.


Ang magandang edukasyon ay susi sa mas mabuting buhay, the great equalizer that allows every young Filipino a chance to realize their dreams...
Nagtayo tayo ng 95,000 na silid-aralan, nagdagdag ng 60,000 na guro, naglaan ng P1.5 billion para sa teacher training, especially for 100,000 English teachers. Isa sa pinakamahirap na Millennium Development Goals ay iyong Edukasyon para sa Lahat pagdating ng 2015, na nangunguhulugang lahat ng nasa edad ay nasa grade school. Halos walang bansang nakakatupad nito. Ngunit nagsisikap tayo. Binaba natin ang gastos ng pagpasok. Nagtayo tayo ng mga eskwela sa higit isang libong barangay na dati walang eskwelahan, upang makatipid ng gastos ng pasahe ang mga bata. Tinanggal natin ang miscellaneous fees para sa primary school.

Education is one of the main needs of all human, so the government also gives that person who wants to achieve their dreams. There are schools that under construction because we all know that the school we have is not enough for all the Filipino who wants to study. Based with the president that some of other countries can’t give this kind of help to build some schools for those people who wants to study.

On the assumption that you heard/read the SONA of the President last month (July 2009), identify at least 3 areas related to Human Resource Management and explain how these areas can improve our quality of life.
Last July 27,2009 Gloria Macapagal- Arroyo’s SONA for 2009 was delivered at the joint session of the Congress of the Philippines. And the president cited areas that are related to Human Resource Management (HRM).

NAPC MICROFINANCE UNIT

Pursuant to the mandates stipulated in Title II of Republic Act 8425, the National Anti-Poverty Commission, through the Microfinance Unit (MFU), works toward the development of an enabling policy environment for the microfinance industry and ensure that microfinance services reach their target clientele -- the poor. The MFU was created as a separate unit of the NAPC Secretariat in June 2004 by virtue of Special Order No. 2004-22. Since then the Unit has made remarkable gains in the monitoring, policy review, gender mainstreaming, replication of best practices and educating the poor in microfinance.


NAPC’s Thrusts and Functions in Microfinance:

RA 842 the following thrusts and functions of NAPC towards the development of the microfinance sector:

* Development of a policy environment, especially in the area of savings generation
* Rationalization of existing government programs for credit/guarantee
* Utilization of existing government financial entities for provision of MF products/ and services for the poor
* Promotion of mechanisms necessary for implementation of MF services, including indigenous MF practices

The law also mandates NAPC to monitor the utilization of the People’s Development Trust Fund (PDTF) and perform the following activities:

* Source funds for the establishment of/and augmentation of PDTF
* Recommend the accreditation of organizations/institutions acting as resource partners for institutional development
* Ensure that validation/monitoring activities are conducted for PDTF-funded projects
* Promote research and development work on livelihood & MF technology, publications/communications programs for poor beneficiaries

OFW
In good times and bad, overseas Filipinos keep our nation resilient. Their remittances of $16 billion last year were a record. I know that this is not a sacrifice joyfully borne. This is work where it can be
found—in faraway places, among strangers with different cultures. It is lonely work, it is hard work. That is why we are working to create good paying jobs here at home, so that
overseas work will just be a career choice, not the only option for a hardworking Filipino.

Meanwhile, we should make their sacrifices worthwhile. We should take stronger measures to preserve and enhance the value of their hard earned wages. That means stronger consumer protection for overseas Filipinos investing in property and products back home. For them, I am activating an
Investors Protection Task Force.


Labor Protection programs that will generate jobs and employment, protect the Filipino workers here and abroad as well as promote their welfare by ensuring that the terms and conditions of their work, such as wages, working hours and safety measures are humane and just.

Tax Revenues


“We will work to increase tax effort through improved collections and new sin taxes to further our capacity to reduce poverty and pursue growth. Revenue enhancement must come from the Department of Finance plugging leaks and catching tax and customs cheats. I call on tax paying citizens and tax paying businesses, help the BIR and stop those tax cheats”.

This will help the improvement because the returns can be a benefit to all. The infrastructures, the roads, and any other government projects help the people. Though many claims that they cannot feel the benefit from the taxes they’re paying, still, it cant be denied that, sometimes, we were just trying to ignore the existence of the projects that the government give back to our community.



Education

“Ang magandang edukasyon ay susi sa mas magandang buhay, the great equalizer that allows every young Filipino a chance to realize their dreams”, president Arroyo.

"It seeks to mainstream early childhood development in basic education. Our children are our most cherished possession. In their early years we must make sure they get a healthy start in life. They must receive the right food for a healthy body, the right education for a bright and inquiring mind—and the equal opportunity for a meaningful job".

-We built 95,000 classrooms, created 60,000 teaching jobs, and allocated P1.5 billion for teacher training, especially for 100,000f English teachers. One of the most difficult Millennium Development Goal is Education for All by 2015, meaning, universal primary education. Almost no country will achieve it. But we are still trying. We built schools in over a million villages where there were none so that the children can save on transportation going to school. We eliminated miscellaneous fees for primary school. School uniforms are no longer required for public school.
In private high schools, we finance half of the students.


Expand and improve comprehensive early childhood care and education, especially for the most vulnerable and disadvantaged children.
Ensure that the learning needs of all young people and adults are met through equitable access to appropriate learning and life-skills programs.
Improve all aspects of the quality of education and ensure excellence of all so that recognized and measurable learning outcomes are achieved by all, especially in literacy, numeracy and essential life skills.

''Nakinabang ang pitong milyong entrepreneurs sa P165 billion in microfinance loans. Nakinabang ang sandaan libo sa emergency employment ng ating economic resiliency plan. Kasama natin ngayon ang isa sa kanila, si Gigi Gabiola. Dating household service worker sa Dubai, ngayon siya ay nagtatrabaho sa DOLE. Good luck, Gigi.''


"Microfinance is the supply of loans, savings, and other basic financial services to the poor."
Currently, there is a global depression worldwide. With this, the government can help the people through implementing rules which can alleviate their economic status. One way of helping the constituents is by allocating budget to finance the small and medium entrepreneurs. One of this is the microfinance loans which enables the poor households with financial and non-financial services.
P165 billion worth of microfinance has given benefits in almost 7 million entrepreneurs.
The Philippine Microfinance Industry:

• Made remarkable progress the past ten years
• Reached a large number of the poor
• Market has grown
• Large unmet demand for microfinance services among the poor
• At end 2002, 25% of 4.3 million poor households reached
• Mostly married women
• MF clients clustered around the poverty threshold, including the vulnerable non-poor
• Estimated leakage to non-poor clients was 20%



More to the point, through The P300-billion Economic Resiliency Plan of the country aimed to boost the country's economy in 2009. Particularly, the Plan aims to create jobs, protect the poorest of the poor, returning OFWs and workers in export industries, ensure low and stable prices to support consumer spending, and enhance competitiveness in preparation for the global rebound. Also, the resiliency plan expects to guarantee sustainable growth and attain the higher end of the growth targets for the year.




"Sa hirap at ginhawa, pinapatatag ang ating bansa ng ating overseas Filipinos. Iyong padala nilang 16 billion dollars noong isang taon ay record. Itong taon, mas mataas pa. I know that this is not a sacrifice joyfully borne. This is work where it can be found in faraway places, among strangers with different cultures. It is lonely work, it is hard work. Kaya nagsisikap tayong lumikha dito sa atin ng mga trabahong maganda ang sahod, so that overseas work will just be a career choice, not the only option for a hardworking Filipino.”


In this area, it focuses on Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs). In the case OFWs, the government is trying to produce jobs which generate greater earnings so that it will just be a career choice and not the only option for a painstaking Filipino in search of a better life, which PGMA stressed out during her SONA.

We cannot deny the fact that OFWs have a big help in the advantage of the nation’s economy. It records $ 16 B last year and is expected to grow this year.

With this the government imposed different programs for the protection and advantage of our compatriots. It is significant since it concentrate on the needs and problems of our Filipino workers in other countries which are a big help in the development of the country’s economy. It implies that the government values the OFWs and envisions for a better quality of life of our fellow OFW's.

''Pardon my partiality for the teaching profession. I was a teacher. Kaya namuhunan tayo ng malaki sa education at skills training. Ang magandang edukasyon ay susi sa mas magandang buhay, the great equalizer that allows every young Filipino a chance to realize their dreams. Nagtayo tayo ng 95,000 na silid-aralan, nagdagdag ng 60,000 na guro, naglaan ng P1.5 billion para sa teacher training, especially for 100,000 English teachers.
"

Education is fundamental to progress and development of our society.

“Education is the key to success”
As we can notice many Filipino’s are intellectuals in many aspects. Filipino’s excelled in many fields like science and technology, agriculture, sports, music and many others. Through education the government can develop different skills of a student. And effective learning has many factors to be considered like conducive learning environment, effective educators and a lot more.
In connection with this, the government imposed different programs which can improve the education of the country. Basically, the government has constructed classrooms which serve as their second home for learning and training up teachers to be more competitive and proficient in their field of specialization.

With this, we can expect that the quality of education of the country is world-class.
