Philippines conserve energy by switching temporary to 4-day workweek

Government offices in the Philippines are to work a four-day week for the next two months to reduce energy costs and help its flagging economy.
President Gloria Arroyo said the move was “imperative” because of soaring oil prices and a worsening fiscal position.

Inflation is running at 8.5%, jobless levels are above 11% and the budget deficit has widened to 4% of GDP.

The order will apply to all staff working in government departments as well as state-owned corporations
