This 2015, visitors from APEC economies will witness for themselves the vibrancy of an inclusive and growing nation. In Manila and beyond, they will have the opportunity to experience locations around our country that largely contribute to the dynamism and the rich culture of the Philippines. They will encounter our greatest resource: Our people, who are kind, compassionate, and talented beyond measure. And they will see for themselves an archipelago connected through a web of inclusiveness.
The venue was filled with thousands of people, including 28 mayors, 849 brgy. chairpersons, all parish pastoral councils in the province, and even pastors from the IEMELIF Church, The United Methodist Church and Baptist Churches, who genuinely expressed their solidarity in the event.
As his activities this week show, the President continues to deepen our ties with Filipinos overseas and the international community, with the aim of fostering a stronger regional network and a more harmonious world.
