Sinuportahan ni Sen. Francis “Chiz” Escudero ang pagtalaga ni Pangulong Rodrigo Duterte kay Nestor Espenilla bilang bagong gobernador ng Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) kapalit ng nagretirong si Amando Tetangco Jr.
“I highly commend President Rodrigo Duterte’s choice for Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas Governor. From the start, I have been batting for an insider to replace Mr. Amando Tetangco, Jr. in order to ensure the continuity of policies and stability, thus far, of our monetary policies. This is essential in order to provide the needed fiscal and monetary backbone which, in turn, will ensure the continued and sustained robust growth of our economy,” ani Escudero.
Binanggit pa nito na bilang chairman ng Senate Committee on Banks, Financial Institutions and Currencies, kailangan niyang makipag-ugnayan sa BSP sa pagbalangkas ng mga panukalang batas para maisa-ayos ang Bank Secrecy Law, amiyenda sa Anti-Money Laundering Act at amiyenda sa BSP Charter.
“I wish Mr. Nestor Espenilla the best and I congratulate him on his appointment and designation. I look forward to continuously working with him again in many important pieces of legislation,” pagdidiin ng senador.
