Per initial evaluation of the request, the topics are too broad and there is a need to provide the context for us to be ble to provide the right information/data. Moreover, in the case of the second concern, burden of deficits and debts, it is suggested that it be referred to the Department of Finance for appropriate action.

Thank you.

Ms. Yolanda,


Clarifications with regards to the information I am requesting, on the first one; budget and fiscal policy, I wanted to know how these two policies works and how are they implemented. It is more of the process of creating the policy and it's implementation.

On the third matter,  I am looking for brief explanations on how government controls the economy maybe through the two policies (i.e. Budgetary and fiscal policy).

Thank you very much!

Respectfully yours,

Ednalyn Dela Cruz
