Poverty rate falls to 16.6%
As the creation of better-paying jobs offset the impact of last year's high inflation episode, the poverty incidence rate in the country dropped to 16.6 percent in 2018, the government reported Friday. At a national poverty threshold---the minimum income required to meet basic food and non-food requirements---of P10,727 a month for every family of five, National Statistician Claire Dennis S. Mapa said the poverty rate declined from the updated 23.3 percent in 2015, based on 2012 prices. The reduction in poverty incidence translated to 17.6 million poor Filipinos as of last year, lower than 2015's 23.5 million.

No extension, upsizing of P3-B ‘premyo’ bonds offer seen
Those who wanted to buy premyo bonds better do it sooner than later as the Bureau of the Treasury is not likely to extend the ongoing three-week offer nor upsize the volume. National Treasurer Rosalia V. de Leon told the Inquirer Friday that the Treasury has "no intention for now" to sell more than P3 billion nor extend the offering beyond Dec. 13 or Friday next week. As for the offer period, De Leon earlier said the Treasury did not want to burden banks with additional work ahead of the Christmas holidays so an extension was unlikely. During the first eight days of the premyo bonds sale that started last Nov. 25, small investors already snapped up more than P2 billion worth of ...Keep on reading: No extension, upsizing of P3-B ‘premyo’ bonds offer seen

Growth may return to 7% level in ’20, Sun Life exec says
The Philippine economy may return to the 7-percent growth trajectory for the first time in six years in 2020 assuming that the government budget delay that gnawed on production this year will not happen again, an investment expert from Sun Life of Canada said. This could, in turn, boost the Philippine Stock Exchange index (PSEi) to a new record high of 9,460 next year, as the upbeat macroeconomic prospects could support an earnings growth rate of 10.4 percent, Sun Life of Canada Philippines chief investment officer Michael Enriquez said in a briefing on Friday.
