    VP Leni says cooperatives, an honest government will help “mga naiiwan sa laylayan”

    VP Leni says cooperatives, an honest government will help “mga naiiwan sa laylayan”

    Vice President Leni Robredo said cooperatives play an important role in communities, bringing in those on the fringes of society.

    'Yung cooperatives, malaki 'yung aming paniniwala na ito talaga 'yung magiging catalyst for inclusivity, 'yung paniniwala namin na ito 'yung kulang sa atin na nag-iimprove man ang ating ekonomiya, hindi equitable 'yung pag-asenso natin,” the presidential aspirant said during an online town hall meeting with cooperative leaders on Wednesday, March 2, hosted by the Cooperative (Coop) National Confederation of Cooperatives (NATCCO) Party List.

    “Hindi equitable kasi 'yung mga mayayaman lalong yumayaman pero may mga naiiwan sa laylayan,” she said.

    Robredo said the government should provide more assistance to cooperatives so they can help more people.

    “Isa sa pinakamagandang vehicle para masalo yung mga naiiwan at… bigyan siya ng mas maraming tulong para mas natutulungan nya din 'yung kanya,” she said.

    Robredo said having an honest government is a visible solution to the majority of the problems faced by cooperatives, from the simple acquisition of Taxpayer Identification Numbers (TIN) for members of cooperatives to broader bureaucratic reform.

    “'Yung gobyerno may kapangyarihang gumawa ng batas para magkaroon ng budget ang mga programang bubuhay sa ating mga ekonomiya at magbibigay muli ng pag-asa sa ating mga kababayan,” Robredo said.

    If elected President in the upcoming elections, Robredo said her top priority will be to build digital infrastructure to facilitate and expedite government processes, as well as to reduce corruption by decreasing human intervention. She said her administration will involve stakeholders in the development of plans and policies for their industry.

    Robredo said no one will be left behind in the country's progress, and those on the fringes who have previously been denied the opportunity to participate in governance will be given a voice to be heard.

    “Ako 'yung isang public servant na hindi ako naniniwala sa trickle down approach of governance,” Robredo said. “Parati kong pinapaniwalaan mas (ma)buti 'yung bottom up. 'Yung mga policies kung bottom up, mas responsive siya to the particular sectors na gusto nating tulungan.” [END]
