FOURTH TWG MEETING ON "NO SHORTCHANGE ACT OF 2016" In the morning of 28 Nov. 2016, the Technical Working Group for the new “No Shortchange Act” met for the fourth time (and the first time after consultative public hearings were held in Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao).  The TWG was honored by the presence of new DTI Usec. Ted Pascua as he chaired over the meeting to straighten out issues brought to fore from the regional public hearings.  PAGASA’s STC and PCCTA’s Carling Cabochan were the only two representatives from the private sector to attend this Meeting (the rest were all from DTI’s different divisions except for BSP’s Roy R. Hernandez). There appeared difficulty in the enforcement of this law as nearing the completion of the crafting of its Internal Rules and Regulations (IRR), gray areas (contradicting laws) make implementation both cumbersome and troublesome.

Written by Wave Technologies, Inc.   
Wednesday, 16 November 2016
The City Government of Quezon City introduced at a hearing just some four days earlier a bill for an Ordinance increasing real estate tax on certain areas in the city of up to 500%!  Of course, attendees to this hearing were alarmed and decided to organize a Consultative Hearing with a wider audience for businesses which will be affected by this “preposterous” bill.  Held on the evening of 11/16/16 at the newly-opened Panay Kain, Tulog, ATBP.’s Mandarin Wok Restaurant and hosted by the Q.C. Association of Fil-Chinese Businessmen, Inc. (supported heavily by the Phil. Chamber of Commerce & Industry-QC Chapter), PAGASA was represented by William Villanueva, Fred Gravador, STC and Desmond Chua (who is also a VP for QCAFCBI).  Other Business Organizations were also represented that evening. Vice Mayor Joy Belmonte got hold of this meeting and sent her City Assessor and relevant Councilors/Sponsors of said Bill to the Meeting to defend their proposal for increase in Real Estate Taxes in QC.  Meeting ended with the different Organizations asked to submit Position Papers within 10 days regarding said issue.

PAGASA PRESENTS ITS POSITION ON PLASTIC BAGS PAGASA PRESENTS ITS POSITION ON PLASTIC BAGS For the fourth Congress in a row since the 14th Congress, PAGASA presented its position with regards to the use of plastic bags in supermarkets and its impact on the country’s economy as well as the it’s ecology.  Of course, after various improvements on its position as a result of developments in sustainability worldwide, PAGASA was able to present and submit a more coherent Position Paper to a more receptive Committee on Ecology in Congress headed by its sharp and efficient Chair of the Committee, Congresswoman Estrellita Bito-Onon Suansing of Nueva Ecija.  Among one of the sponsors of this Bill is former pres. & now Pampanga Congresswoman Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo (seated beside Ms. Suansing). The decision Of the Committee at this Hearing set on 16 Nov. 2016 seems to lean more towards regulation rather than ban of plastic bags as a solution to the problem of improper disposal of said bags leading eventually towards gradual  phase-out of disposable bags in lieu of reusable ones.
