Philippines 1965-1986:TheEconomic Situation By the great year of 1965, Marcos triumph in the presidential election, running as the nominee of the Nacionalista Party in a bi-party electoral system. A few months earlier, he had been president of the opposing Liberal Party. Upon acquiring the domination in the Philippine governmental seat, he employed political whereabouts and rent reassignments to an unparalleled scale to merge bureaucratic, military, and “cream of the crop” political support, and was able to wane the judicial branch by means of reappointment
I. The Economic Acceleration With the desire of the administration to accelerate economic growth and development, President Marcos executed a numerous of economic agenda and goals. These programs assisted the country to take pleasure in the interlude of economic expansion from the mid-1970s until the near the beginning of 1980s. In the fields of agriculture, the farmers were given technological and monetary support and other inducements such as "price support". With the incentives agreed to the farmers, the countrys farming sector nurtured & grew. Consequently, the country became self- reliant in rice by the year 1976 and even became one of top exporters of rice. The economy during the decade was robust, with budgetary and trade surpluses. The Gross National Product rose from P55 billion in 1972 to P193 billion in 1980.
II. The Tourism Rate The Gross National Product increased from P55 billion in 1972 to P193 billion in 1980.Tourism rose causative to the economys escalation. The number of tourists visiting the Philippine rose to one million by 1980 from less than 200,000 in preceding years. The country earned 26 billion pesos. A large fraction of the tourist group consists of Filipino balikbayans (returnees) under the Ministry of Tourisms Balikbayan Program which was launched in 1973.
III. The International Remittances ofOverseas Filipino Workers Another chief resource of economic growth of the country was the transfer of funds of abroad Filipino workers. Thousands of Filipino workers found employment in the Middle East, Singapore and Hong Kong. These overseas Filipino workers not only helped relieve the countrys joblessness crisis but also produced much-needed foreign exchange for the Philippines. A big share of the annual earning of the country was owed to the payment of twelve- monthly in gain on loans.
