BATTLE CRY: CONTINUITY OF THE ECONOMIC POLICIES OF THE RAMOS ADMINISTRATION 

LEADERSHIP GOALS AND VISION  

De Venecia believes that the next President must continue the deregulation and liberalization programs that the Ramos administration has begun. Favors and pushes for the country’s entry into a "borderless global economy." To fight off  poverty, speaks of the drawing up of a master plan that will give the poor a "fighting chance to improve their productivity  and access to markets, technologies and financial resources." He believes in a three-pronged economic strategy:  

  •      to leap from routine, subsistence agriculture to full agricultural
         modernization; 
     
  •      to leap from agricultural to industrial age; and  
  •      to leap from the industrial age to the age of information. 

His program for development is the creation of a middle class society, which he believes is the backbone of a modern 
industrialized country.
