“I am pleased to note that the National Government’s budget balance in November 2014 was at a surplus of P6.8 billion, wider than the year-ago surplus of P1.0 billion. Year-to-date, the budget balance was at a deficit of P26.8 billion, well-within the program,” Finance Secretary Cesar Purisima said.
“I am pleased to report that the National Government has posted a budget surplus of P29.9 billion in August, wider than the year-ago surplus, once again resulting from fast-paced expansion of revenue collections for the month. This brought the year-to-date budget balance to a deficit of P25.9 billion, well-within the program and narrower than comparable figures a year ago,” Finance Secretary Cesar Purisima said.Read More
