The Arroyo administration was unable to create the jobs it promised to generate during the past five years, a report made by the Philippines’ socioeconomic body said.

Unemployment “remains high and meeting job creation targets continue to be a challenge,” the National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) said in its updated Medium Term Philippine Development Plan (MTPDP) for 2010.

Although the government created 3.5 million jobs from 2004 to 2008, these jobs “represent a backlog of the 3.5 million jobs, given a target of at least 1.4 million employment created per year,” the document added.
