Keynote speech of Finance Secretary Carlos Dominguez

In addition, some of these firms cheat the government of some 63 billion pesos by abusing transfer pricing rules or by shifting profits and costs to reduce tax liabilities. The total is a staggering 504 billion pesos in one year alone. That amount is equivalent to around 93 percent of the Department of Education budget and more than 5 times that of the Department of Health in 2017. In other words, we have to account for the 504 billion pesos that we gave up and ensure that the taxpayers’ hard-earned money was not wasted. .....»»

PBA: OK kami ni Coach Yeng -- Erram

Poy Erram extinguished rumors that he and head coach Yeng Guiao are not seeing eye to eye amid the trade talks that would ship the NLEX big man to TNT Katropa. The 6-foot-7 reigning Defensive Player of the Year on Wednesday set the record straight that there is no truth in the issue. “’Di totoo ‘yun,” said Erram after the Road Warriors’ 104-89 win over Alaska in a pocket tournament at the Upper Deck in Pasig City. “Basta di totoo yun, OK kami ni Coach Yeng.” “Nagkwentuhan pa nga kami kaninang umaga eh,” he added. “Masaya kaming dalawa. Wala kaming alitan. Never kaming magkakaroon ng ganoon.” Erram is in the midst of a three-team trade talks with TNT Katropa and Blackwater as conduit that has undergone some revisions. Rumors arose that his transfer was due to a falling-out with a very volatile Guiao, who gave Erram an earful in one game last year. “So just to set the record straight, wala kaming pinag-awayan ni Poy,” said Guiao, who said in a previous interview that he doesn’t want to see Erram shipped to another team. “You can ask him if he's happy here or if he's not.” “But we are happy with him, I think he's happy with us. That's not the reason for the trade,” added the mentor. Erram still joined NLEX in their training and tune-up match although he sat out the match against the Aces. “Wala pa rin naming lumalabas na kahit ano kaya hangga’t walang lumalabas pupunta pa rin ako ng maaga [sa practice], shooting. Ginagawa ko pa rin anng daily routine ko” said Erram. “Siyempre ayoko naman na magtanga-tangahan din, maghintay-hintay din [kasi] mawawala rin ako sa kondisyon. Kasi if ever na di matuloy, tuloy ako sa NLEX walang problema.” For Guiao, Erram, who averaged 11.7 points, 7.8 rebounds, and 2.1 blocks in his first year with NLEX after moving from Blackwater, is still a Road Warrior. “We still consider him as part of the team until may final ano na run sa trade. But we're just trying to relish our last few days together,” said Guiao. “Siya talagang nagpupunta siya sa practice, gusto niya pa makasama ‘yung mga teammates niya even though he knows there's a pending development.” “But he comes to practice really just really doesn't miss anything even itong game hindi niya alam kung maglalaro siya o hindi, dumating pa rin siya. This morning we had an 8-10 practice, andun pa rin siya,” Guiao added. Pending the final decision, Erram still knows what team he is with. “Alam ko kung saang team ako, NLEX pa rin ako eh. Yun pa rin ang team na gusyto ko. Yun pa rin ang gusto ni coach Yeng. Hanggang ngayon NLEX pa rin,” he said.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

Ravena brothers team up for Gilas in FIBA Asia Cup qualifier

Thirdy Ravena cherishes the opportunity of playing alongside brother Kiefer Ravena for the national team. The Ravena brothers will mark their first time playing for the tricolors in the 2021 FIBA Asia Cup qualifiers after the two made the cut in the Gilas Final 12 roster. Gilas will face Indonesia on February 23. “Masaya siya pero at the same time malaking responsibility yun, kasi yung kapatid ko para na rin siyang coach,” said the younger Raveba. “Para na rin siyang tatay ko eh kasi kahit on the court tinuturuan niya rin ako.” The Ravenas never got an chance to play together for the national squad.   Thirdy made his senior team debut last year in the FIBA Wolrd Cup Asian qualifiers against Qatar while Kiefer was still serving an 18-month FIBA ban.   “Nabigla ako but it’s a great honor, a great privilege to play for Gilas once again,” said Thirdy, who last played with Kiefer back in the UAAP for Ateneo de Manila University in the UAAP back in 2015. “It’s gonna be fun, ‘yung program na pinlano para sa amin, can’t wait to represent the Philippines once again.” Aside from the Ravenas, other former Blue Eagles in the lineup are Poy Erram, Matt Nieto, Isaac Go and Justin Chua while incoming Ateneo player Dwight Ramos is also in the roster.   Also suiting up for Gilas are CJ Perez, Troy Rosario, RR Pogoy, Abu Tratter and Juan Gomez de Liano. The squad is set to fly to Indonesia on Friday......»»
