The theme of the 2011 Philippines
development report is 'generating inclusive growth,
uplifting the poor and vulnerable'. This theme is
follows from the priorities set in President Aquino's
Social Contract and the emerging 2011-2016 Philippines
Development Plan (PDP). The PDP details the vision of
inclusive growth and poverty reduction that underlies the
social contract (chapter one). Accordingly, the PDP focuses
on three strategic objectives: (1) attaining a sustained and
high rate of economic growth that provides productive
employment opportunities, (2) equalizing access to
development opportunities for all Filipinos, and (3)
implementing effective social safety nets to protect and
enable those who do not have the capability to participate
in the economic growth process. While the country's
development agenda remains broadly the same over the last
decade, the Aquino government is focusing on stepped-up
implementation and delivery. The pressing development issues
confronting the Philippines in 2011 are not radically
different from those of previous years. The critical
difference is the new government's focus on effective
implementation and delivery of public goods and services,
starting with a firm approach to fighting corruption and
improving governance.
