Lessons from the GMA Administration

           In the remaining months of the Administration of President B. S. Aquino III, there will be enough opportunities for him and his officials to write about the many positive legacies he will leave for future generations.  I think it is only fair that we pause for a while and look back at the previous Administration of Gloria Macapagal Arroyo to identify the contributions that it made to the long-term progress of the Philippine economy.  There can be important lessons that the next Administration that will be in place in 2016 to 2022 can learn from those ten years of the presidency of President GMA, whatever the judgements will be concerning the accusations against her filed by the present Government.

Thanks to the continuing growth of the Philippines population, Filipinos are in more than 100 countries all over the world, contributing much-needed foreign echange and purchasing power to the Philippine economy and fostering the human and spiritual development of the most diverse of peoples and cultures on this planet.
