Fan boy! BBM praises Speaker Arroyo’s prowess in economics

Aug 15, 2018 @ 3:31

Former Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. had a shower of praises for former president and now Speaker Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo.

The Ilocano politiko spoke about Arroyo’s economic policies when she was still president in his video blog “Wonking the Economy” posted on August 11.

Marcos believes the structures and institutions Arroyo set up during her presidency allowed the Philippines to “take full advantage of Asia’s place as the emerging market” after the collapse of financial markets in Europe and the United States.

“And if not for that, the Aquino presidency would not be so lucky to have been blessed with all of the advantages of a burgeoning Asian economy because without those institutions and without those structures and without those organs of government, we would have been left behind and that is what we can look forward to with the guidance of our professor and now Speaker, GMA,” said Marcos.

Arroyo loved what he had to say, she even shared Marcos’ video on her Facebook page!
