      Land, sea and air transport system - enabler of growth
      --------------------------------------------------
      BusinessWorld, 30 July 2004 - Transportation is not simply a major component of the economy, but fundamen-tally a basic enabler of economic activities that allows movement of people, goods and services. In the Philippines, it is often acknowledged that the transportation sector and the level of economy are essentially on the same side of the coin, that is, both are third-world.

      Carmakers feel pinch of pollution
      --------------------------------------------------
      The International Herald Tribune, 27 July 2004 - One does not often hear financial analysts talk about climate change, but this month John Casesa, an analyst at Merrill Lynch, organized a teleconference to address a troubling question for Detroit's automakers: As regulators around the world move to curb emissions of heat-trapping gases from cars and improve fuel efficiency, what will happen if Wall Street adds up the costs?

      --------------------------------------------------
