PNoy vows inclusive growth
BY CARLA GOMEZ
President Benigno Aquino III, in his fourth State of the Nation Address yesterday, vowed to maximize opportunities for all, especially the poor, as he outlined the gains of his administration in the past three years and vowed to continue to go after the corrupt and underperformers in government.
“We are not content to wait for the trickle-down effect; we cannot leave their fate - their receiving the benefits of progress - to chance. What we call inclusive growth - this all-encompassing progress - is the principle that drives every initiative, every action, and every decision of your government,” he said.
Widespread opportunity is the key to comprehensive and sustained progress, he said.
