was confident agriculture would recover -- barring more storms -- and would hit a 3.1 to 3.5 percent growth target for the year.
Gross national product, bloated every year by billions of dollars in remittances pouring in from Filipinos working overseas, rose 3.4 percent year-on-year in the third quarter versus a revised second-quarter figure of 5.0 percent.
But net factor income from abroad, which includes remittances, shrank 2.7 percent in July to September after 8.4 percent growth in the second quarter. Canlas
said the decline was due to higher interest payments by the government and private sector on foreign debt.
