Achieving the Vision
For us to be able to achieve the vision of TRAIN, we need to lead the investment growth of 7 to 10 percent. Over the long-term, all these investments require additional funds of around 1 trillion pesos per year in 2016 prices, on top of the current 1.7 trillion pesos. Over the medium term, the government will need to raise some 366 billion per year between 2016 and 2022 (or 2.2 trillion pesos in total).
