Home / Services / GOOD NEWS: Duterte to Eliminate Poverty by Signing an Executive Order


President Rodrigo Duterte has recently signed an Executive Order (EO) No. 5, which embraces “Ambisyon Natin 2040”, the 25-year long haul vision of the National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) to eradicate hunger in the nation.

The EO reads:



“The Philippine government hereby aims to triple real per capita incomes and eradicate hunger and poverty by 2040, if not sooner.”

The EO also seeks to identify a set of milestones that will guide the successive medium-term development plans of the Philippines.

Under the EO, four Philippine Development Plans (PDPs) will be crafted and implemented until 2040.

These PDPs are tied down on Ambisyon Natin 2040, which recommends that “By 2040, the Philippines might be a prosperous, overwhelmingly white collar class society where nobody is poor. Our people groups will appreciate long and solid lives, are keen and inventive, and will live in a high-trust society.”

As per NEDA, this guarantees maintainability and consistency of techniques, approaches, projects and undertakings crosswise over political organizations.
