Commentary: PGMA's Australian APEC trip, an opportunity to highlight RP's economic achievement

Tacloban City (September 6) -- Just like her previous trips, President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo is expected to present the best of the Philippines and reap good developments for the country, as she attends the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Leader's Summit in Australia.

President Arroyo's trip to Australia in order to attend the APEC is seen a a very good opportunity to highlight the long term economic achievements of the Philippines.

The APEC is a good venue for the Philippines to send a strong message about the government's economic gains in the last several years.

It is the right forum to inform the regional bloc's members that the country's fiscal and economic reforms have taken roots and concrete results are now being manifested as shown by the country's 2007 second quarter economic growth which is the fastest in two decades.

The President will also push for environmental protection and discuss programs on how to mitigate the effects of climate change, which is a problem that is affecting the whole world.

She will continue to move for the revival of the Doha Development Round of world trade talks and stress the continuing need to increase the region's capabilities to combat terrorism and respond to threats to public health.

While in Australia, the President is also scheduled to have bilateral talks with several world leaders and meet with Australian business groups in order to update them on the current investment opportunities in the Philippines.

Knowing her unceasing dedication for the betterment of the country and its people, the President will not only ably represent the country but will do her best to bring home good news that will make the people proud to be Filipinos. (PIA 8) [top]
