PNoy praises NEDA as it celebrates 40th anniversary
President Benigno Aquino praised the National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) during the agency's 40th anniversary celebration on Tuesday.
In his speech, Aquino cited NEDA's role in crafting the Philippine Development Plan 2011-2016, which "set in stone our administration's goals of achieving inclusive growth, creating employment for people and reducing poverty."
"Much of your agency's output is done behind the scenes. But this doesn't mean that the work you do goes unnoticed. More than chronicling the successes of the Philippines through data analysis, NEDA is the leader in economic planning and development for the entire country," Aquino said.
