A government decision to extend the strict enhanced community quarantine (ECQ) over Luzon island will not heavily bear on the “Build, Build, Build” schedule, Finance Secretary Carlos Dominguez III said.

He explained that funds will be produced even as the government implement measures to counter the pandemic.

“We are aiming to maintain our ‘Build, Build, Build’ initiative which will help our economy recover quickly upon the defeat of the virus,” Dominguez said.

“The President’s fiscal policies since the start of his administration, of vastly improving our revenue flows as well as being very judicious with expenditures and investments, have placed us in a good position to meet the financial challenge posed by COVID-19 (coronavirus disease 2019),” he added.
