To remedy the country's chronic budget deficit, Poe said government must carry out "drastic cost cutting measures on non-essential expenditures" and "institute bold tax reforms to improve revenue collection." He said the government must "explore the possibility of a balanced budget," but did not give details. Poe also said government must ensure "food security" by increasing funds for rural infrastructure and use foreign aid to finance low interest credit windows for farmers and fishermen. He also said the government would boost health insurance coverage to 90 percent of the population by 2007 but did not elaborate. He also said the police should be cleaned of "rogue elements". The covenant also called for "an in-depth review" into reforming the presidential system to a parliamentary one.
"We always dream of a better tomorrow, but that dream remains a dream. To make it a reality we have to work for it," Poe said, adding, "I cannot do this alone, I will lead you but I need you."
