    Phl to face calamities in 2014

    THE Philippine government has put in place funds and plans to face possible calamities in 2014, Malacañang assured the public on Saturday.
    Speaking for the government, deputy presidential spokesperson Abigail Valte said various agencies, including the Department of Budget and Management (DBM), have planned calamity and contingency funds for next year.
    "Our agencies, including the DBM, have planned calamity and contingency funds for next year. So we have made preparations for 2014)," she told the state-run dzRB Radyo ng Bayan (People’s Radio) in Manila.
    Valte said President Benigno Aquino III and his Cabinet had been busy in the past few weeks planning the rehabilitation of areas affected by super typhoon "Yolanda" (Haiyan) that killed thousands of people in Central Philippines and ravaged billions of pesos.
