Palace: PHL now 'Asia's Rising Star' because of good governance

MANILA, June 24 -- A good governance that Pres. Benigno Aquino III consistently exercised throughout his six-year term as president has made the Philippines the "Asia’s Rising Star," a Palace official said.

”Mahalagang tingnan natin 'yung malaking larawan at dito makikita natin na simula nang manungkulan si Pangulong Aquino noong 2010, malayo na ang narating natin sa pagtatatag ng mabuting pamamahala o good governance [Since Pres. Aquino began his term in 2010, we have gone far because of good governance],” Presidential Communications Operations Office (PCOO) Secretary Herminio Coloma Jr. said in a media interview after the 118th Founding Anniversary of the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA).

Coloma said the achievements of the Aquino administration for the last six years had transformed the Philippines from being the “Sick Man of Asia” to the “Asia’s Rising Star”.

He reiterated that good governance translates into good economics that resulted to high position of the Philippines as an investment grade country, from Transparency International, and lowered rating in the Corruption Index.

”Kaya't dapat itatak natin sa isipan ng lahat ng Pilipino, taas-noo tayo sa buong mundo dahil nagtatag tayo ng mabuting pamamahala sa ating bansa [We should be proud because of good governance during the past six years],” Coloma said.

Coloma said Pres. Aquino is ready to step down as the country’s 15th President on June 30. He will be replaced by President-elect Rodrigo Duterte.

”What I know is that he is ready to leave on Thursday, June 30 next week,” Coloma told the media.

Aside from gracing the 118th DFA Anniversary, Pres. Aquino also attended the anniversary of the Department of Health.

”The President is also scheduled to speak in the commencement exercises at the Ateneo de Manila University,” Coloma. (PNA) - See more at:
