Impact of the TRAIN
PERCIVAL B. ALIPIT, Baguio City

The implementation of the Tax Reform for Acceleration and Inclusion Law starting this year is intended by the government to generate revenues from taxes.

It will have an impact on the cost of living and the economy. With the increase in the prices of petroleum products, there would be a concomitant hike in transport costs and fares, electricity costs, prices of commodities we use, and services we avail of.

It is estimated that six million Filipinos will benefit from the TRAIN, but 16 million belonging to poor families will not be able to endure the effects of price escalation.

To enable the public to cope with price surges, concerned agencies should prescribe price ceilings to regulate prices. Adjustment in wages vis-à-vis rise in prices would also be a relief.
