Aquino cites labor gains, opens luxury bag factory



President Benigno S. Aquino III gestures during the inauguration of D' LUXE Bags Philippines, Inc. in Barangay. Sta. Rosa, Concepcion, Tarlac. EDWIN BACASMAS

CONCEPCION, Tarlac—President Benigno Aquino III spent Monday, the start of the impeachment trial of Chief Justice Renato Corona, inaugurating a 10-month-old luxury bag factory and giving his perspective about the economy for which he received a failing grade from a predecessor and former teacher.

While “doing what is right is the fundamental thing to do,” such as exacting accountability from public officials, the President said his administration was able to generate 2.1 million jobs in 2011 despite the global economic slowdown.

Mr. Aquino also highlighted the growing number of tourists coming to the Philippines. He said tourist arrivals, which increased from 3 million to 4 million last year, would jump to 10 million in 2016 when his term ended.

In a paper she released last week, detained former President and now Pampanga Representative Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo chastised Mr. Aquino, her former student in economics, for the supposedly lackluster performance of the economy.

Taking off from the number of tourist arrivals and jobs created, Mr. Aquino assured D’Luxe Bags Philippines and the Luen Thai Group that they made the right decision by bringing their investments to the country.

The President arrived here with his economic team composed of Labor Secretary Rosalinda Baldoz, Finance Secretary Cesar Purisima, Trade Secretary Gregory Domingo and Transportation and Communications Secretary Manuel Roxas II.

“Their presence here empowers them to open up opportunities for our people that had been lacking for such a long time,” Mr. Aquino said.

Shifting to Kapampangan, he told Tarlac residents: “I can open  doors for you and when I do, it is all up to you if you will keep it open.”

D’Luxe Bag Philippines is one of three investments promised to Mr. Aquino by the Luen Thai Group during his official visit to the United States last year. Employing 1,200 workers, the Tarlac factory produces Coach, a luxury brand.

The first investment of the Luen Thai Group was an Adidas factory, which was inaugurated in Mactan, Cebu province, in August 2011. The third investment is being set up at the Clark Freeport.

William Tan, Luen Thai chief executive officer, said the Tarlac factory’s expansion plan would increase the workforce by 500 this March. By 2014, the factory is expected to employ 5,000 workers.

In its first nine months of operation, the Tarlac factory was able to produce 220,000 bags, which Martyn James, vice president of Coach International, described as unprecedented.

    Whattan IRONY!  SO, PNoy wants the Pinoys to mimic Kris to buy luxurious bags?  Luxurious bags in the midst of poverty?  PNoy if you want to exact public accountability from public officials start off with yourself!  Why are you still giving PORK BARRELS to tongressmen?  You know PNoy? it is obvious that you are only using CORRUPTION as an issue to cover up your MISDEEDS!  you are a crazy immature despot trying to crack down those people who are opposing you!

      In reply to “Bakit2011″,
      The bags are never intended for local market. What we are talking here is “it generate jobs” to help alleviate poverty in our country.  Your comment describe you, crazy and immature. 

  • rickysgreyes

    PNoy you might want to revive the Philippine shoe industry. As a backgrounder, there were two promising industries in the 70s and early 80s, these were the furniture and shoe industries. The furniture industry has developed into a world class industry but the shoe industry collapsed. Why? The furniture industry moved into design – -the shoe industry did not and just relied on labor alone as a value added factor for its exports. as a consequence, with the rise of China as a manufacturing hub, buyers shifted their orders to China thereby collapsing the industry.BUT the good news is this: 1) we have the best designers of shoes in Marikina; and 2) the RP population has since increased since then to have a stable domestic market. Therefore, PNoy, you may want to get your bright boys at DTI (DesignCenter, BOI, CITEM and BETP), Marikina LGU, TESDA, BSP (for financing) and revice this once promising industry. It starts in Marikina.

  • J_Tartan

    Wake up people !!!!! Pres. Aquino just used P2.1- billion in pork Barrel Funds to BRIBE THE SENATORS to ensure the conviction of Mr. Corona. Many Filipinos believe this is a criminal act and constitute PLUNDER. Looks like GMA will have a cell mate pretty soon huh… The President cannot squander for BRIBES the resources of the country just to have an ENDGAME where his family will solely benefit from it.
    We, the FILIPINO people need to stand up to this INSANITY !!!! This is INSANE… If Corona will be convicted, it is because of the rule of law of the Republic. Not because our President bribed them. Are we not ashamed anymore?

    JUST A REMINDER to the Philippine PRESS. You are to stand neutral in your case reporting. Accepting bribes could result you being convicted in the court of law and thrown to jail. The P2.1- Billion in the news is too much and too tempting to ignore, right? It made the P200-million GMA fertilizer scam appear like a little girl’s scam.

  • bong

    So many idiotic comments here.   The Coach bags being manufactured in Tarlac are for export, not for local market. 

    The investments created jobs for the people,  contributed to our GDP (export value) and enhanced PH competitiveness since the country was chosen over others with cheaper labor. 
    It shows that our manufacturing industry is alive.

    • Night

      bobo the point is a luxury bag factory will not solve the 10 million unemployed morons who voted for Penoy like you….

      With a 3.2% economic growth, with 2% population growth……….. we are only uplifting by 1.2% our economic capacity…. naintindihan mo na???

      pinaka IDIOT ka kasi! “Shifting to Kapampangan, he told Tarlac residents: “I can open  doors for you and when I do, it is all up to you if you will keep it open.”” ito pa isang comment na galing sa idiot… parang ang dating may utang na loob pa ang taga-Tarlac sa kanya.. Hoy! ABNOY mandated yan sa posisyon mo.. opposition or not you should always keep your doors open if you want good governance..

      • susan

        ret, obviously you didn’t understand what this statement meant. Means that Noynoy as a president will search for opportunities or investors (as what happened) in a locality, then the people in that area should do their part in working so that the opportunities or investments made for businesses in their area can be maximized and turned into income-generating activities.

      • ret

        susan, i respect your interpretation but for me ang yabang ng dating nya. maraming interpretation ang phrase nya. wag kalang mag salita o mag yabang regarding kitid utak or no breed sa comment ng iba.. dahil kahit ang may BREED na tao hindi perfecto. tingnan mo nalang ang may mga breed sa gobyerno natin… kaya kung ako sayo wag mong kitidin ang utak sa pagunawa at baka mapahiya ang “BREED” mo!

  • Freemind_03

    I can’t seem to match up PNoy’s claim of  2.1M jobs created and more tourists visited us in 2011.  Based on the stats in this article alone, one factory employed around 1,200 employees.  Which make make me think more jobs means more businesses opened in our country and should  translate to growth.  More tourists should have provided stability to the tourism industry as such contributing to the country’s funds.  But how come we grew only by 3% last year?  If other asian countries experience the same effects of the financial crisis in Europe and US, how come Indonesia, Vietnam and Singapore grew twice as much as we did?  I’m not an economist but something tells me there’s flaw in PNoy’s stats.

  • Panot

    What do you expect from P’Abnoy? It was in September last year when local companies are experiencing an anemic sales an indication of an economic slowdown but what P’Abnoy did is just to hold on to government funds instead of using it to pump-prime the economy. Upon realizing this mistake ( thanks to Senator Juan Ponce Enrile and Ed Angara for lecturing Sec. Purisima during a budget hearing)… the Aquino Administration fast-tracked the release of billion peso funds for infrastructure projects, which has a multiplier effects on the economy, and the benefit from this move will only be felt in the third quarter of 2012… too late… the labor sector has been hit by this idiotic, indecisiveness of P’Abnoy…. yes P’Abnoy is popular but popularity alone cannot be translated to a strong economy you need also brain which P’Abnoy lacks….Hay naku naman!!!

  • GKid

    A luxury bag factory is good for the Philippines, its better than nothing. I just wonder if the President’s Family benefited from the luxury bag factory. If the factory was built on the Hacienda Luisita, then that might be a serious conflict of interest for the President.

  • Buddha Follower

    Tarlac factory? How much are they “giving” the thieving Cojuangco family for giving them a place in Tarlac? 

    It’s funny that Penoy was saying statistics on economic gains won’t matter if ordinary filipinos are not feeling it. 

    He forgot to say that right now Filipinos aren’t feeling any gains whatsoever while the economy is dying right in their very eyes. Yes, Penoy is busy. Busy with bribing the tongressmen and busy hatcheting plans on how to take over the Supreme Court with the eventual grabbing of Hacienda Luisita as the icing.

    It is also funny that Penoy is using statistics to fool the Filipino masses. 2.1M jobs? Did he mention what jobs are those? When did those companies start putting up businesses? He won’t because obviously majority of them came from the previous government, albeit corrupt like the current one.

    Low poverty rate while intentionally fiddling and manipulating the poverty index measurements to make it appear his government uplifted the lives of poor filipinos?

    This president is turning out to be one of the stupidest presidents in the history of the Philippines.

  • alx2k

    Pnoy is really showing he doesn’t have the grasp of the economy; citing a 1,200 new jobs created is too supercilious considering there are tens of millions of filipinos looking for jobs.
