TO GENERATE JOBS AND SUPPORT LOCAL INDUSTRIES IN RELATION TO will respond to this?

POVERTY REDUCTION Commented [NJC2R1]: I think the private sector will


also have to standardize their products as the ‘’BPP’’ raises a
standard quality which would result a healthy competition
between the government owned factories and the private
sector.
EXPLANATORY NOTE
Commented [M3]: Please refer to our template regarding
the title construction
Commented [NJC4R3]: Had changed the title to
The said government-owned factories aim to help millions of Filipinos concerning poverty ‘’justified’’
reduction through generating jobs. Benefits may include promotion of the municipality’s
economic status and the birth of industries that will take part of the factories’ production of
products. Also, the factories are self-sustaining and continuous growing businesses that are up to
date and maintained quality.
Millions of Filipinos still experience hunger and are trapped in poverty. Their daily
efforts to strive for their families are not well paid and just enough to survive the day. The
problem now is that Filipinos are skilled workers and are passionate about their jobs, however,
more aid is needed from the government. Many of the industries in the Philippines are starting to

and sometimes has same or better quality. Commented [M5]: Please proofread your work.

With these factories, we can have standardization amongst our products and provide the
whole nation with quality products that are designed for Filipinos. Through this, the government
did not only supported the industries and capabilities of the Filipinos but also made a systematize
program to organize their products so they don’t have to worry about selling it because it will
Commented [M6]: Is there even a national brand? How
carry the national brand and so as it is the duty of government to market them. would you know what a province can specialize?

The passage of this bill is urgently sought. Commented [NJC7R6]: As the factories are under the
government authority it is an assumption to consider the
products of the factory as a national brand. Please refer to
the sec. 3. Definition of Terms (e) for a more detailed
concept about the national brand. To know what a province
NIEL JOSEPH T. CAUYAO can specialize please refer to the sec. 10. Ideas and
