Optimism’s rise lifts SBG’s spirit
The numbers translate to light at the end of the tunnel. That made us hopeful that we are on the road to a strong recovery from the pandemic
Senator Christopher ‘Bong’ Go
Senator Christopher “Bong” Go expressed delight over the recent Social Weather Stations survey results which showed 48 percent of Filipinos are optimistic about the economy which he said offers “a good sign” for the nation.
“The numbers translate to light at the end of the tunnel. That made us hopeful that we are on the road to a strong recovery from the pandemic,” Go said.
The survey, which involved 1,200 Filipino respondents, was conducted last 10 to 14 December 2022.
The survey also revealed that 33 percent of Filipinos believe that the economy will stay the same, while only 9 percent said that it will worsen.
This data totaled a net economic optimism score (percentage of economic optimists minus the percentage of economic pessimists) of +40, a rate considered “excellent” by the SWS.
More health centers rise
Go, meanwhile, attended the groundbreaking of a Super Health Center in Lupon, Davao Oriental that is expected to provide aid to struggling residents.
The new government clinic highlights the state’s commitment to provide accessible healthcare services for all especially those residing in far-flung communities.
During the visit, Go emphasized the significance of bringing basic medical services closer to Filipinos in the countryside, particularly in poor and often neglected areas to ensure more inclusive development and productivity of the whole citizenry.
With the Super Health Center, residents of Lupon and its neighboring areas will no longer have to travel to hospitals often found in town centers and cities to receive medical attention if the same can be provided by the Super Health Center.
