Among his priorities are jobs and youth, Bam Aquino said, specifically the improvement of the government’s conditional cash transfer or Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino program.

He called on government agencies to work together to make it easier for entrepreneurs to do business in the country.

His platform also goes beyond merely improving the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino program, but is really focused on generating jobs, matching the curriculum with the needs of industries, and making it easier to do business in the Philippines in order to support our micro-enterprises and generate even more jobs and livelihood for the economy.




  1. If you want to create job employment, I strongly suggest to take my advice to conduct a massive research in every family to determine what Filipino skills they have, for example, if you find in particular communities having a skill of Magsasapatos just provide necessary shoe machine to start his or her own backyard business or the so-called BACKYARD INDUSTRIES, another example, a sewer have no money to buy machine, just provide machine to help start his or her own sewing machine. another example skill, fisherman, meager income due to he is renting a small banca, just provide a partnership agreement to fishermen’s to provide them a fishing vessel which is seaworthy instead of their own banca prone to capsize, another example, you find in Luzon areas that have skills in lathe machine works, but have no capital to start, just provide them machines to operate thru means of your excellent proposal of partnership of businesses and the Filipino people. backyard industry is an answer to your propose matching jobs in the industry. specifically, revise the 4 or 5 year college curriculum wherein their 1 year should be spend in actual industry training so that, after completing their curriculum their knowledge and skills JOB MATCH TO THE COMPANY OR INDUSTRY. it will result to a fitted and suited to the job, also, make more studies to reduce the company or industry requirement, so that employment is easy.
