Salceda wants Trump blacklisted in PH
The congressman who earlier filed a resolution seeking to bar Donald Trump from entering the country warned that the newly elected US president’s protectionist policy could hurt the Philippines’ interests, particularly on the business process outsourcing (BPO) industry.
Albay Rep. Joey Salceda issued a statement on Wednesday to give his views on Trump’s US election victory.
“No need to waste emotions, anyway probably, Duterte was right in separating from the US after all. I just pray now for the best for the US and the world economy,” Salceda said.
Salceda said Republican interests might hurt the country, especially with Trump’s hard stance on focusing jobs to the United States that could possibly endanger the business of American BPO companies in the Philippines.
“Republicans are bad for Philippine interests. In the case of Trump: First, his protectionism promises to bring jobs back to America. Well, American companies still need to optimize our BPO potential; American firms need Filipino talent. We are competitive,” Salceda said./Inquirer.net
