1. MANNY VILLAR (via Phil. Star)


Who are your advisers in economics/business/finance?

I have no one person advising me.

I’ve been a lawmaker since 1992 and I can say that I have a pretty good understanding of our law.

Economic advisers-I have quite a lot. Romy Bernardo, Felix Medalla. I respect Pepe Diokno I read a lot of articles, Fortune, Economist.

How will you increase FDI and local investments?
Provide infrastructure, upgrade communications, secure power.

How to lower power costs, improve energy security.
It has to be a good mix. There is a lot of money being spent on renewable energy, biofuels, and jathropa. That is misguided. There is no jathropa industry in the world.

Infrastructure priorities and how to fund them.
We want to have an inventory of our transport infrastructure
