Message of President Aquino to the Integrated Micro-Electronics Incorporated on the occasion of their 35th Anniversary

For the past five years, the Philippine economy has grown at an impressive rate. Posting an average 6.2% rise from 2010 to 2014, one of the fastest in the region over the past few years and the most robust period of economic growth our country has seen in the last four decades. Because of these stellar numbers, we are now hailed as “Asia’s Rising Tiger,” “Asia’s Rising Star,” and “Asia’s Bright Spot.”
