MANILA Cheap Tyler Seguin Shirt , Aug. 7 (Xinhua) -- The World Bank on Thursday downgraded its economic growth forecast for the Philippines this year to 6.4 percent due to the slow start of the country's economy in the first quarter and the lingering effects of typhoon Haiyan.

In its latest report titled "Philippine Economic Update," the World Bank also trimmed the country's growth forecast for 2015 to 6.7 percent.

The World Bank had earlier projected the country's gross domestic product (GDP) to grow by 6.6 percent and 6.9 percent in 2014 and 2015, respectively.

"The revision reflects the slow start of the economy in the first quarter of 2014 given the effects of typhoon Haiyan, lower government spending in the second quarter, and monetary policy tightening in the first seven months of the year Cheap Jamie Benn Shirt ," the report read.

Despite this, World Bank Country Director Motoo Konishi said the projected growth of the Philippines remains one of the fastest in East Asia, second only to China among the major economies.

The Philippine government is targeting to hike GDP by 6.5 to 7. 5 percent this year and by 7 to 8 percent in 2015.

While the country's GDP growth in recent years has translated into lower poverty figures, the World Bank said poverty would be reduced faster if the government would spend an additional 5 percent of GDP on health and education.

To raise more funds, the World Bank said the government should consider implementing tax reforms to make collection more efficient and reducing the tax burden and cost of compliance for small businesses.

WASHINGTON — The FBI is investigating whether Donald Trump's associates coordinated with Russian officials in an effort to sway the 2016 presidential election Cheap Jason Spezza Jersey , Director James Comey said Monday in an extraordinary public confirmation of a probe the president has refused to acknowledge, dismissed as fake news and blamed on Democrats.

In a bruising five-hour session, the FBI director also knocked down Trump's claim that his predecessor had wiretapped his New York skyscraper, an assertion that has distracted White House officials and frustrated fellow Republicans who acknowledge they've seen no evidence to support it.

The revelation of the investigation of possible collusion with Russians, and the first public confirmation of the wider probe that began last summer Cheap Alexander Radulov Jersey , came in a remarkable hearing by one branch of government examining serious allegations against another branch and the new president's election campaign.

Tight-lipped for the most part, Comey refused to offer details on the scope, targets or timeline for the FBI investigation, which could shadow the White House for months, if not years. The director would not say whether the probe has turned up evidence that Trump associates may have schemed with Russians during a campaign marked by email hacking that investigators believe was aimed at helping the Republican defeat Democrat Hillary Clinton.

"I can promise you Cheap Ben Bishop Jersey ," the FBI director vowed, "we will follow the facts wherever they lead."

Comey for the first time put himself publicly at odds with the president by contradicting a series of recent tweets from Trump that asserted his phones had been ordered tapped by President Barack Obama during the campaign.

"With respect to the president's tweets about alleged wiretapping directed at him by the prior administration, I have no information that supports those tweets, and we have looked carefully inside the FBI," Comey said. The same was true Cheap Stephen Johns Jersey , he added, of the Justice Department.

His confirmation of the Russia-links investigation was striking given the FBI's historic reluctance to discuss its work. But Comey said the intense public interest in the matter — and permission from the Justice Department — made it appropriate to do so.

Comey said the collusion inquiry began last July as part of a broader probe into Russian meddling in American politics, meaning Trump was elected president as associates remained under investigation for possible connections to Russia.

Clinton allies on Monday contrasted Comey's silence during the campaign with public comments he made last year when closing out an investigation into Clinton's email practices and then, shortly before Election Day, announcing that the probe would be revived following the discovery of additional emails. Many Democrats blame Comey's public updates with stoking worries about Clinton's trustworthiness and turning voters against her.

Comey acknowledged that "some folks may want to make comparisons to past instances" where he and other officials were more open Cheap Brett Ritchie Jersey , but he said those were about concluded investigations.

In the current case, it's not clear how long it will take for the FBI to decide if a crime was committed, but counterintelligence investigations are known for being complicated and time-intensive — and for frequently concluding without charges. Comey would not commit to a timetable.

Regardless of the outcome, the investigation is unquestionably an unwelcome distraction for an administration that has struggled to move past questions about ties to Russia. The White House tried anew Monday to distance itself from two former senior members of Trump's team, Paul Manafort and Michael Flynn Cheap Esa Lindell Jersey , who have been under scrutiny for foreign contacts.

Rep. Devin Nunes, the California Republican, told Comey that revelations about the investigation had placed a "big gray cloud" over people trying to lead the country.

"The faster you can get to the bottom of this, it's going to be better for all Americans," he said.

The hearing quickly divided along partisan lines Cheap Tyler Pitlick Jersey , Democrats pressing for details on the status of the FBI's investigation while Republicans focused on news coverage and possible improper disclosures of classified information developed through surveillance.

Comey is the latest government official to reject Trump's claims, made without an.
