WATCH: Interview with Astro del Castillo: assessment on Dutertenomics


Financial analyst Astro Del Castillo gives his analysis of the so-called “Dutertenomics” in this interview during the Eagle News Service program “Balitalakayan” on July 26, 2021 aired on NET25.

He gives a positive review of the economic policies of President Rodrigo Duterte, saying that there were many reform measures beneficial to the health and socio-economic reform of the country that were passed under his government.  The massive infrastructure campaign under the “Build, Build, Build” program also boosted the economy and would have a lasting impact.

But the COVID-19 pandemic dampened the country’s economic growth, as with the rest of the global economy, he said.
