Government Final Consumption Expenditure (GFCE) speeds up
 
Government Final Consumption Expenditure accelerated to 8.3 percent in the third quarter of 2017, which is faster than the 3.1 percent in the same period last year.  The increase resulted from the disbursements for social protection programs, the filling up of government positions, and the implementation of the second tranche of the salary adjustment based on Executive Order No. 201, series of 2016, which increases the base pay of civilian, military, and uniformed personnel.
