New minimum wage starts implementation this month



HE new minimum wage of P318 will start implementation this month. This, after the implementing rules and regulations of Wage Order No. RX-18 was published in

a local newspaper last August 19. It was learned that a new wage order can only be implemented once its IRR has been published. The P318 new minimum wage covers the cities

of Cagayan de Oro and Iligan and the adjacent municipalities of Tagoloan and Villanueva. Wage Category II of P313 covers the cities of El Salvador, Gingoog, Malaybalay, Ozamiz and Valencia and the municipalities of Maramag, Manolo Fortich and Que-

zon in Bukidnon. Rates in Wage Category III are P308 for non-agricultural workers and P296 for agricultural workers in the cities of Oroquieta and Tangub and the municipalities of Lugait and Opol in Misamis Oriental; and Mambajao in Camiguin.

Workers in the rest of the region will receive P303 for non-agricultural sector and P291 for the agricultural sector. An increase from Wage Order No. RX-17 that was implemented last June 2013, the new wage order was issued last May.

This, as RTWPB 10 issued an advisory stating that distressed and new businesses may apply for exemptions on or before November this year at any of the Department of Labor and Employment (D OLE) offices in the region.

Barclays eyes cut in PHL banks’ RR rates MANILA -- London-based Barclays raised the possibility of cut in Philippine banks' reserve requirements (RR) after the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) said it it monitoring domestic liquidity conditions as inflation

continue to go down. On Friday, the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) reported that rate of price increases further slowed to 0.6 percent in August 2015 from month-ago's 0.8 percent bringing the year-to-date


average to 1.7 percent. Average inflation rate to date stood at 1.7 percent, way below the government's target band of two to four percent for 2015-18. Last August's inflation level is the fourth consecutive

month of below-target rate of price increases. Year-ago level is 4.9 percent. BSP Governor Amando Tetangco Jr. said they will continue to monitor global oil prices and the El Nino phenomenon to check its impact on domestic liquidity. "We will make adjustments to policy if needed to ensure just enough liquidity in the market so the favorable inflation path is sustained,” he added. With this statement, investment bank Barclays, in a research note, said Tetangco's statement "is consistent with the central bank's stance that while activity levels remain healthy, its main concerns centre around volatility and market liquidity." "We think the BSP is comfortable with the policy stance, but we acknowledge outside risks of easing in the reserve requirement ratio for banks if liquidity conditions deteriorate due to capital outflows," it said. The last time the BSP adjusted banks' RR is in 2014 when it was hiked by a total of 50 basis points, 25 basis points each in March and May, as growth of domestic liquidity grew stronger than in the past years at a level of more than 20 percent. To date, universal and commercial banks' (U/KBs) have 20 percent RR rate, one of the highest in the world, which is the reason why some analysts consider a possible cut as domestic inflation continues its deceleration.

Bureau of Customs eyes CCTV as anti-graft tool Bukidnon • Camiguin • Lanao del Norte • Lanao del Sur • Misamis Occidental • Misamis Oriental

By GERRY LEE GORIT, Correspondent

CAGAYAN de Oro City -- Officials of the Bureau of Customs (BOC) in Region 10 yesterday said closed-circuit televisions (CCTVs) will soon be installed in the agency’s key areas to enhance security measures and for transparency. Once installed, BOC10 Intelligence Officer II Alvin Y. Enciso said the CCTVs will prevent any employee from committing any wrongdoings such as harassing importers. Enciso, after his assignment to the BOC, has long been proposing the installation of CCTVs for transparency “at para mawala ang duda sa amin.” Since the CCTV can be viewed online, he said even officials from Manila can monitor how the port of Cagayan de Oro and BOC-10 employees do their respective tasks. Deputy District Commander Sa-i Roman N. Moscoso of the BOC-10 said at last 10 CCTVs will

be installed at its main office in the port of Macabalan in Cagayan de Oro, including its sub-port, the Mindanao Container Port Terminal in Tagoloan, Misamis Oriental. Moscoso said the CCTVs will be online twenty-four seven. Enciso said it will not just serve as “risk management” for the bureau, but it will also help the agency track down the flow of containers and that the examination is done in the designated area. In his directive, OC Deputy Commissioner Ariel F. Nepomuceno said: “Being an office vested with police authority, the Enforcement and Security Service (ESS) See cctv, page A11

Pelaez invites stakeholders to tackle Steag IPPA privatization

MISAMIS Oriental -VICE GOVERNOR JOEY G. PELAEZ invites various energy stakeholders to the 32nd Regular Session of the Sangguniang Panlalawigan on September 7, 2015 to inquire on the possible effects of the privatization of Steag State Power, Inc. (Steag SPI) Independent Power Producer Administrator (IPPA). Among those invited were General Manager Julie Real of MORESCO I, Engr. Joseph Legaspi of MORESCO II, AMRECO Executive Director Clint Django Pacana, National Association of Electric Consumers for Reform

Chairman El Cisco Jun Ramos and Mike Baños. The concern on the privatization came up when the Power Sector Assets and Liabilities Management (PSALM) set to bid out Steag SPI IPPA on September 23, 2015. “This poses a serious concern to us. This is another burden on our constituents,” Vice Governor Pelaez said. “It will also affect businesses and industries which are dependent on electricity,” he added. The concern is based on the imminent increase in the price of electricity once the privatization is consummated. Vice See pelaez, page A11

QUEZON City--Leaders of cooperative federations meet here last Thursday to plan out actions on moves to abolish their privilege of tax exemption. In a meeting called by the Philippine Cooperative Center (PCC) yesterday, leaders of cooperative federations from around the country agreed to campaign against provisions in the proposed law on the Rationalization of Fiscal Investment Incentives, now pending in the House of Representatives and the Senate. The cooperatives are particularly wary on the provision of the proposed law that seeks to repeal sections 60 and 61 of the Cooperative Code of the Philippines (RA 9520). These provisions give cooperatives tax exemption privileges. Among the nontaxable income of cooperatives are those derived from business transactions with members. Also cooperatives with assets of not more than P10 million are exempt from “all national, city, municipal or barangay taxes. They are also exempt from customs duties, advance sales or compensation taxes on their

of the state “to promote the viability and growth of cooperatives as instruments of equity, social justice and economic development.” Payoyo said the tax exemption privileges is a social justice measure and can never be considered as fiscal incentive to businesses. In a position paper submitted by the CDA to the House Committee on Ways and Means chaired by Rep. Romero Quimbo (Marikina, 2nd district), which is deliberating on three House Bills on the Rationalization of Fiscal Investment Incentives, it said that repealing the tax exemption of cooperatives “will defeat the very intent of the 1987 Constitution.” It added that “cooperatives are voluntary organizations of people who want to improve their economic lives by their own initiatives and using their own resources.” Cooperatives primarily derive their capital from contribution of its members. According to Hamilcar Rutaquio, chairman of the PCC, cooperatives movement is launching a nationwide campaign against

proposed Fiscal Investment Incentives law and intensify their lobby against the proposed law in both houses of Congress. Tens of thousands of co-operators would hit the streets in Manila and key cities nationwide next month as a show of force against the proposed law, he said. What the government should do, according to Atty. Gloria Fudalan, chairperson of the Philippine Federation of Credit Cooperatives is instead to support the growth of cooperatives and strengthen further their privilege of tax exemption. This attempt to abolish the cooperative’s privilege of tax exemption “could be the most serious threat to cooperativism, which is celebrating its centennial in the country this year.” While cooperatives enjoy certain tax privileges, cooperatives are in fact tax makers, said Payoyo. Taxes being withheld from fixed income from those directly employed by cooperatives, numbering over half –million Filipinos, he said is over P4 billion a year. It could be bigger as those indirectly See ellorin, page A11

wide horizon and modern ways of high-technology reengineering. For the developing countries, such team members in the cabinet are required. Otherwise, the nation development programs will be bogged down. This is not a trivial thing. This is a great way of making the nation great. The cabinets being selected by the president in any country must be based on skills and expertise needed by the situation. The past situation is not the same as the present situation. And, the present situation must be different from that in the future. All the cabinet members must be updated with their own attitudes and mind---that is a global mindedness. When the cabinet mem-

bers are homogenouslyglobal minded but with different expertise in their responsibilities, they are the best team. They can come together with the same spirit to trigger the president’s vision and mission. Remember that coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; and working together is success (Henry Ford, 18631947). But, it does not mean that togetherness is based on political aspect. It can be built based on the same idealism. When among the team members in the cabinet are not in the same tract, the nation as a whole will be in dangerous condition. All the people get the impact that they cannot be basically stable. The nation is led to the chaos in some aspects. The most unique is the rise of any prices of the goods for the people daily needs. So, this fact is in fact has become the evidence of the above problem. It is the problem dealing with a leader with no global mindedness. Again, it is a matter of idealism. When a leader just thinks of having See djuwari, page A11

House takes up Fortun’s measure declaring Butuan as tourism zone By PAT SAMONTE, Caraga Regional Editor

QUEZON City -- Agusan del Norte First District Rep. Lawrence Lemuel Fortun presented last week before the House Committee on Tourism his proposed House Bill 4823 declaring Butuan City as a heritage tourism zone as it took up the lawmaker’s legislative measure. In August, 2014, Fortun filed the bill which was later referred to the Committee on Tourism. In his explanatory note, Fortun said “Butuan has a vibrant and rich cultural heritage. Before colonization, it was called the Kingdom of Butuan and was known for its metallurgical industry and sophisticated

naval technology.” Fortun argued that his proposed bill is anchored on Section 15 of Article XIV of the 1987 Constitution which provides, “The State shall conserve, promote and popularize the nation’s historical and cultural heritage and resources, as well as artistic creations,” and Section 16 of the same

Article which reads, “All the country’s artistic and historic wealth constitutes the cultural treasures of the nation and shall be under the protection of the State which may regulate its disposition.” It was in Butuan where the Balangay Boat, the first wooden watercraft in Southeast Asia, was excavated. The Balangay Boat is believed to have ruled the Southeast Asian waters in 320 AD. These boats were used to establish and maintain trade relations with neighboring islands and empires to prove robust commercial activiSee house, page A11

“Ang pagkakaroon ng isang mataas at matibay na edukasyon ay isang saligan upang mabago ang takbo ng isang lipunan tungo sa pagkakaroon ng isang masaganang ekonomiya,” sabi ng isang may-akda. Edukasyon ang isa sa pangunahing pundasyon ng isang lipunan. Dahil dito, natututo ang mga tao ng iba’t ibang kaalamang kailangan upang matagumpay niyang maitaguyod ang lipunang kanyang kinabibilangan. Nang dahil din sa Edukasyon, natututo ang isang tao na mangarap at maging isang indibidwal ng kanyang pinapangarap – maging matagumpay sa buhay at dakilang kapaki-pakinabang ng kanyang pamilya, kapwa at lipunan. Ganito kahalaga and Edukasyon. Kaya, nararapat lamang na ang isang tao ay magkamit ng mataas na kalidad na edukasyon, at sa pagbibigay ng de-kalidad na edukasyon, responsibilidad ng gobyerno ng isang bansa, sa pamamagitan ng Kagawaran ng Edukasyon, ang magpanukala ng de-kalidad ng sistema ng Edukasyon. Dito pumasok ang K to 12 Basic Education program. Ito ay isang bagong sistema

ng naglalayong i-angat ang kalidad ng edukasyon ng Pilipinas. Ang K to 12 ay naisakatuparan sa pangunguna ng Department of Education, Commission on Higher Education at Technical Education and Skills Development Authority, kasama na ang ibang sektor na naniniwala sa K to 12. Ang sistemang ito ay nabuo dahil sa paniniwala ng Administrasyong Benigno Aquino na ang labin-dalawang taong pag-aaral ay sapat na bilang ng taon upang matutunan ng mga mag-aaral ang mga karapat-dapat at mahahalagang uri ng kaalaman ng magagamit nila sa araw-araw na pamumuhay, lalong-lalo na sa pagkakaroon ng mas malaking oportunidad na makakatulong sa kanila upang maging kapaki-pakinabang sa lipunan. Sa K to 12 din, bahagi ng curriculum nito ay ang technicalvocational na programa. Sa ibang salita, nagbibigay ito ng pagsasanay na teknikal at bokasyonal ng higit na makakatulong upang ang isang mag-aaral ay maging handang manggagawa pagkatapos niya ng Basic Education Level. Dagdag pa nyan, naituturo rin sa ilalim ng sistemang ito ang mga mataas na uri ng kaalaman, upang

law which prevents foreignflagged vessels from directly transport goods to their final port of destination resulting in exorbitant shipping fees which is said to be the highest in the world and

greatly impacting Mindanao businesses. Policy research has led to the amendment of the cabotage law which has relaxed the restrictions. The MOA signing is

an opportune time as the country is celebrating the 13th Development Policy Research Month (DPRM) which carries the theme “Effective Regulations for sustainable growth.” (PIA)

To protect environment, XU to partner with WB By MIKE BAÑOS Editor at large

MINDANAO’S oldest university seeks to leverage its newly forged links with the World Bank’s Knowledge Development Community to pursue its key advocacies especially for the environment in Mindanao. “We hope to host a forum with an expert from Costa Rica talking about Payment for Eco-Systems Services and how that can help our own PES program here,” said Fr. Roberto C. Yap, S.J, Xavier University-Ateneo de Cagayan president during August 26 signing of the partnership agreement with the World Bank, which links the university as the 18th member to the Knowledge for Development Community (KDC) in the Philippines and the first in Northern Mindanao. “We also hope to tap an expert in Mexico who can talk about their experience with conditional cash transfers, to help us with our own efforts along this line,” he added. “Through that interaction, using the power of technology, we will have a KDC not only based in Cagayan de Oro but internationally through the five areas XU is promoting: peace, food security, environment, health and

Tuna industry players pushing for harmonization of fishing practices in ASEAN

GENERAL Santos City--Tuna industry players here are pushing for the harmonization of fishing practices and standards in Southeast Asia in the wake of the commencement later this year of the region’s economic integration. Joaquin Lu, president of the Socsksargen Federation of Fishing and Allied Industries Inc. (SFFAII), said Thursday there’s need for the 10 member-states of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) to synchronize their fishery regulations to ensure better regional cooperation. He said fisheries play a vital role in the growth of the ASEAN region as it covers some of the most productive waters in the world, contributing to food security and generating millions of income opportunities. But he said the sector has been facing significant challenges due to the depleted state of various wild fish stocks, lack of

Philippines. Specifically, the partners look forward to engagements in Transparent and Accountable Governance, Empowerment of the Poor and Vulnerable; Rapid, Inclusive and Sustainable

Economic Growth; Climate change, environment, and disaster risk management; and, Peace, Institution Building, and Social Economic Opportunity. The new partnership calls for the partners to

jointly undertake knowledge sharing activities to discuss development challenges and solutions with grassroots participation. “We are launching a relationship with XU and WB on the Knowledge Development Community,” Mr. Konishi said in an interview with “Basically it’s WB interacting with knowledge institutions to exchange ideas, I heard XU is doing a lot on community outreach so the community has a better understanding of its environment, how to protect it, how to improve governance, how to get citizens involved. That’s what this whole knowledge exchange is all about.” “This KDC is young and the Philippines is in the forefront of making what used to be a depository library where we would put our books and reports, and now into something more active,” he added. Mr. Konishi cited one of the biggest projects the WB and EDC is undertaking for the next 18 months is the WB Mindanao Jobs Report, with XU among the project partners and Fr. Yap sitting as a member of the Advisory Group with a team of XU researchers conducting the value chain analysis on Mindanao vegetables. See protect, page A11

accurate statistics on stock status and poor management of fishery resources. “Along with the establishment of ASEAN as a single market and production base, the harmonization of fishing practices and standards should be a key priority,” he said in a press conference. Lu noted that as early as 2012, SFFAII already joined the ASEAN Seafood Federation (ASF) in support of its goals to enhance its commitment towards regional cooperation. He said the establishment of the ASF, which is chaired by the fishing federation until 2016, is an essential foundation that will further enhance cooperation between ASEAN member-states as it moves forward with the regional economic integration. “Our main goal is to contribute to TUNA LIFTING TITLT.

Jose GerardPolicarpio from the Philippines has won the opportunity of a lifetime at Silverstone International Racing Curcuit after being named the first-ever Nissan PlayStation® GT Academy Asia champion. The 26-year-old fought off competition from 28 of the best Gran Turismo® gamers from across Asia, winning a place on the Nissan Driver Development Programme and a race seat in the 2016 Dubai 24 Hours. The decision came after an epic six-day Race Camp, with Policarpio chosen as the winner for his consistently impressive performances throughout the week and a well-driven final race. Policarpio earned his place at Race Camp from the hundreds of thousands of Gran Turismo gamers that

entered the competition across Asia. Having won through the Philippines National Final, he arrived at Silverstone as one of six to represent the Philippines, alongside 28 Asia competitors overall, split into five territory groups. Each group formed a close bond with their territory judge, who acted as a mentor, but then had to make the difficult decisions when it came to eliminations from the competition. Policarpio’s opportunity of a lifetime will begin right away, where he will receive

world-class racing tuition and physical training from Nissan to prepare him for his endurance race debut in Dubai next January, where he will be part of the same driver line-up as International Race Camp winner Matthew Simmons.

You are born to give a big impact to the world Special Gospel of the day(September7, 2015-Monday) John 17:1119”Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, which they may be one, as we [are]. 1 Timothy 2:5”For [there is] one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus. This is proven in our holy gospel for today that Jesus prayed for His people. This is called an “intercessory prayer” which the intents of the said

prayer is referred to other persons not for “personal reasons.” 1Timothy 2:1”I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, [and] giving of thanks, be made for all men. Are we praying for other people? Actually, praying for others is a “saintly acts” because this is done out of “generosity.” This is what Jesus did in our gospel that he asked the Father “to unite His people here on earth” in order that they will “not be scattered

and lost.” In this gospel we are reminded to unite ourselves instead of division. Divided we stand, divided we fall. In Ephesians 4:31-32”let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamor, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice: And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you. For those who hold in their different positions, “please be humble and

fulfill your plans” because “promises are made to be broken. God puts you in that assignment because he trusts you so much to be fruitful and productive all the times. You are born to give a big impact to the world. You are created with all talents and abilities to show that you are here for a good purpose. Only in attaching to God we can gain the power to fulfill our different divine assignments on this earth. Jesus desired to unite you to him constantly

because this is a child and father relationship. I believe that our heavenly father is very much interested to you because you are his beloved child. He wants you to be connected to him now and forever. Let us unite our desires and interest in God’s interest for the betterment of this earth.

from page A8 “We’re hoping to design this Jobs Report to be a practical guideline for the incoming administration in 2016 so they have a practical action program for the whole of Mindanao to create more and better jobs,” Mr. Konishi explained. “Most of our things are now in the internet so we’ve moving on from the physical space to more of dialogue and how to connect you with other schools and institutions and to more experts from the outside.” The WB plans to get the heads of the 18 EDC network partners later this year to determine the project’s thrust for next year. “We will get the university presidents together to know what is it you want to do together for 2016 and what is it you need from us,” he said. “ Fr. Bobby already has an idea about us connecting the university to some of the people in the forefront of environmental financing and environmental protection.” Fr. Yap said as a Jesuit and Catholic university XU takes the words of Pope Francis encyclical on the environment ‘Laudato Si’, very seriously, especially when he says everything is connected. “So when I think of all our thematic, all of them are connected. I think this insight of Pope Francis is very powerful, so we do not work on each thematic when we realize all these thematics are connected, so that we can give a life of real human dignity and work for sustainable development that is really holistic and integrated,” Fr. Yap stressed. “The 2nd theme of Laudato Si that I learned is Pope Francis tells us that the cries of the earth and the cries of the poor must be heard together. The plight of the poor is intrinsically connected to the fragility of the planet. So all our work and all the work that we do in our research and social outreach is so we can serve the poor much better. Our work in disaster risk reduction and management is also connected to our work for the poor who are often victims and have the most difficulty in adopting when typhoons like Sendong come.” Catholics formally marked last Sept. 1st as the “World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation,” to give individuals and communities an opportunity to implore God’s help in protecting creation and an opportunity to ask God’s forgiveness “for sins committed against the world in which we live.” The Pope said the annual World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation will be a time for individuals and communities to “reaffirm their personal vocation to be stewards of creation, to thank God for the wonderful handiwork which he has entrusted to our care, and to implore his help for the protection of creation as well as his pardon for the sins committed against the world in which we live.”

The two-day congress, which is the country’s biggest gathering of tuna industry stakeholders, is focused on the theme: “Regional Cooperation: the Way Forward.” Lu said they have invited top industry experts to shed light on the opportunities, issues and challenges facing the fishing industry in line with the ASEAN economic integration. He said their main focus is to continue to support, collaborate and participate in initiatives aimed at attaining better cooperation among regional fishing players, seafood processors and exporters. “We will exchange views with our regional partners on matters of mutual interest such as access to better technology, food safety assurance, supply sustainability, greater market opportunities, and environment and social responsibility,” he said. Meantime, Ma. Rosanna Bernadette Contreras, SFFAII executive director, said around 600 local and foreign tuna industry players are joining this year’s National Tuna Congress. The foreign delegates include top fishery experts and officials from Vietnam, Palau, Papua New, United States, Indonesia and Thailand.

He however added that the CDA had already expressed before Congress its stand on the issue in the public hearing last August 11. “Sinabi po namin na if maipasa itong version of the bill that repeals the cooperative privilege of tax exemption, mamamatay ang mga kooperatiba.
