Statement of President Aquino upon his arrival from South Korea, October 18, 2013
Tumulak po tayo tungong Korea na may baong lungkot dala ng pinsalang dulot ng lindol sa Kabisayaan. Patuloy po tayong nakatutok sa balita rito, sa gitna ng ating State Visit sa Korea. Umuwi naman po tayong dala ang mas maigting na determinasyon upang ituloy ang transpormasyong dinaranas ng ating bansa ngayon. Nakita po natin ang isang bansang dumaan din sa napakatinding pinsala, at ngayo'y talagang tumatamasa na ng kahanga-hangang kaunlaran.

Departure statement of President Aquino before his state visit to the Republic of Korea, October 17, 2013
Alam po natin na talagang matindi nga ang naging ugnayan na sa ilang dekada sa bansang South Korea, at lagi rin po nga natin na talagang tangkilikin ang kanilang pag-aasikaso sa atin dito sa pag-iimbita, at kauna-unahang State Visit sa panahon ng Presidente Park.
Statement of President Aquino upon his arrival from Brunei Darussalam
Hindi natin hahayaang politika ang magdikta sa direksyong tatahakin ng mga Pilipino. Tanging ang interes ng nakararami, ang pagbuwag sa kultura ng katiwalian, at ang pagsusulong ng malawakang kaunlaran ang tumitimon sa bawat hakbang natin dito sa tuwid na daan. Tiyak kong hanggat nariyan ang mga Boss ko—ang sambayanang Pilipino—alam kong anumang pagsubok na ating kakaharapin ay higit lamang magpapalakas sa paninindigan nating magpamana ng isang Pilipinas na pakikinabangan at maipagmamalaki ng susunod na salinlahi.
Statement of President Aquino for the 23rd ASEAN Summit
Clearly: Our development as a region cannot be realized in an international environment where the rule of law does not exist. Thus, the recognition of the rule of law ensures that every member state's interest is upheld and respected. In the context of intertwining interests in the sea known by many names—which is west of the Philippines, east of Vietnam, north of Malaysia, south of China—the challenge that confronts one is a challenge that confronts all.
Statement of President Aquino at the APEC CEO Summit: “Why inclusive growth matters”
In sum, the question of inclusiveness is one that strikes at the very essence of growth. Do we define growth as the mere amassing of wealth, the mere swelling of the gross national product, regardless of who benefits? Or do we decide and abide by the principle that the strength of nations lies in the people—that the fair and just way forward, indeed the only way forward, is for government to ensure that the system allows for equitability, where every citizen, regardless of status of birth or personal network, or circumstances, is allowed the opportunity to shape his destiny through his own ability and hard work?
Departure statement of President Aquino before the APEC Economic Leaders’ Meeting and the ASEAN Summit, October 6, 2013
Nagbubukal ang malawak at pangmatagalang kaunlaran sa matibay na samahan ng mga bansa. Naipupunla ang kasaganahang kapaki-pakinabang sa bawat bansa sa maayos na ugnayan, sa patas na kalakalan, at paglalatag ng pagkakataon para sa ating mamamayan.
