Today leaders from other nations are gathered in our country for the APEC Summit. I'm sure they will discuss ways on how they can collaborate to promote progress among participating countries. I really hope this event will bring significant positive change in our country. In the past how many days, everytime I would go to work, I pray so hard for my safety. With what happened to France last week, I pray for the safety or our leaders. On a lighter side, if we are able to facilitate this event successfully, i'm sure this is a good PR for the country. I hope investors would trust us even more.

There are text messages circulating everywhere about terrorist attacks here in Manila. They're just causing people to panic. I don't think we should be scared about it. I'm more concerned about the road closures. There were people who walked more than 3 kms. to get to their destinations.

Our economy specially the stock market soared high on P-Noy's Admin. Our ratings were now BBB means we are stable and foreign investments were enticed to go in to Philippines. If we pulled this APEC on safety, for sure the trust of other big foreign companies will see Philippines as new place to invest to.

I hope we're able to sustain the progress. People are getting more educated. People are more vigilant and are brave to demand transparency from our government. We should hold these officials accountable if they steal our money. Stop Corruption and Yes to Progress.

Every one seems to be complaining about the traffic and cancelled flights because of this event. But they have no idea how much this APEC had made impact in some economic growth into the country. Unfortunately, it has not benefitted our agriculture base on the critics response to this said event.
