Statement of Secretary Ignacio R. Bunye: Re Pulse Asia surveys
Manila (22 November) -- The benefits of the economic turnaround will take a little while to flow down to the grassroots but we are making headway in that direction.
In the meantime, we are leaving the popularity contest to those seeking to project themselves for next year's polls.
The President is busy with her economic agenda and will not be distracted by the ups and downs of surveys. Her mission is clear: to draw in investments, create jobs and uplift the poor.
In the economic area especially in turning it around, nobody comes close to matching the record of this hardworking President.
