The Aquino government is actively taking steps to improve the Filipino lives by creating more economic opportunities for Filipinos through earmarking more than P1.4 trillion for social and economic services in this year's national budget, Presidential Communications Operations Office Secretary Herminio “Sonny” B. Coloma Jr. said.

Coloma said in a regular press briefing in Malacanang on Tuesday that the government started taking steps to address the concerns raised in the latest survey of Pulse Asia Research.

The 2014 national budget allocated funds for social and economic services in a bid to improve the overall quality of life of the Filipino, the Communications Secretary said.

"The amount represents 63.4 percent of the total P2.265 trillion budget, which includes the P62.6 billion for the Conditional Cash Transfer program, the P35.3 billion for the National Health Insurance Program and the P10.7 billion for technical support services for farmers," he said.
Coloma said this year's budget also includes a P100 billion allocation for the Rehabilitation and Reconstruction of communities affected by the Bohol earthquake and typhoon Yolanda in the Visayas region, which registered the biggest change in the perception of the Filipinos interviewed by Pulse Asia on the quality of life during the last quarter of Year 2013.
