Abstract

In the fourth Ho Rih Hwa Leadership in Asia Public Lecture, President Aquino addressed the political change seen by many countries, especially in the light of events that are unfolding in the Middle East and North Africa, which were a fresh demonstration of "people power", making known their economic and political aspirations. He also drew parallels between the Philippines and Singapore governments, citing how, given the traditions, histories and political institutions, the two governments have in common systems and institutions with a "commitment to remain responsive to the people's needs". Mr Aquino also shared about his plans to live up to the high expectations of his government and effect systemic change and deliver outcomes to the people of the Philippines.
