AFP saves money for govt

The leadership of the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) said yesterday that the military can effectively contribute to the austerity measures of the government with the immediate implementation of the much-delayed modernization program for the AFP.

On the austerity measures of the government, the AFP has started reducing its expenses when the AFP General Headquarters posted savings of R494,000 in telephone bills from January to July this year.

The AFP is expected to cut telephone costs by at least R5 million this year

The AFP relies now more on E-mail, radio, and on existing telephone lines for its communication requirements, Lucero added.
