We have achieved so much, and I tell you today: We are not done. We know that our country’s potential reaches far higher than where it is now; and we will do everything in our power to build on our momentum. As we do this, we continue to recognize the value of exports, because your sector is one way we can truly capitalize on our greatest competitive advantage, namely, our people.

Ang lahat naman po ng ating mga inisyatiba, nakasandig pa rin sa iisang diwa: ang mabigyang-lakas kayong mga kawal at lingkod-bayan na sa tuwing susuotin ninyo ang inyong uniporme, buong-loob at buong-lakas ninyong pagsisilbihan ang bayan, dahil mulat kayo na kabilang kayo sa isang lipunang handa ring pangalagaan ang inyong kapakanan. Na sa tuwing may lalapit sa inyo at magtatanong sa inyong papel sa lipunan, taas-noo ninyong sasagutin: Bumbero ako; naglilingkod ako sa kapwa Pilipino. Continue reading →

Gaya nga po ng nakasanayan, marami-rami tayong pasalubong mula sa biyaheng ito.

Speech of President Aquino during the meeting with the Filipino Community in Australia, October 26, 2012

Published on Friday, 26 October, 2012 - 07:44

Makakaasa po kayong hindi ako titigil hangga’t hindi ko po nagagawa ang lahat ng aking makakaya para sa kabutihan ng ating kapwa Pilipino. Simpleng-simple lang po ang hangad ko: Sa June 30, 2016, bago po noon, bababa ako sa puwesto, at hindi ako mahihiyang humarap sa milyun-milyong Pilipinong nanalig sa akin dahil nagawa nating baliktarin ang kalagayang dinatnan natin. Ngayon pa lang po, tumitibay na ang mas maunlad at mas matiwasay na Pilipinas na maaari ninyong uwian anumang oras. Naninindigan ako sa patuloy ninyong pakikiisa, dahil hindi pa ho tapos ang ating laban. Samahan po ninyo ako: Isang bansa nating tahakin ang tuwid na landas, at isang bansa nating abutin ang katuparan ng atin pong mga pangarap. Ulitin ko po, sa inyo nagmula ang susi ng pagbabago. Ipagpatuloy po natin itong pagbabagong ito. Continue reading →

Remarks of President Aquino at the unveiling ceremony of the statue of Jose Rizal in Campbelltown, Australia, October 26, 2012

Published on Friday, 26 October, 2012 - 06:13

Rizal’s life and his eventual martyrdom soared as the light—the ultimate symbol that pulled the people together and inspired us to right an oppressive system toward eventual freedom from colonial rule. His sacrifice embodied the power of one—a power that illuminated an entire race. It strengthened our forefathers’ belief that so long as every Filipino was unwavering in his or her sense of self-worth, hope of better times ahead would not only endure but more importantly it would come to be realized. This monument, in this park, pays homage to his ideals and will be an enduring pledge that those ideals will continue to guide us: and that Australians will be there, as true friends in our collective quest for even better lives for our peoples.

Our country now stands for everything that is best about the Filipino spirit: determined, fair, and principled.

Truly, opportunities abound in the Philippines. As President, I encourage all of you to ride the wave of optimism—to get on the next flight to our country, and to discover for yourselves what the Filipino can offer.
