MBC Statement on the Passing or President Noynoy Aquino
We pray for President Aquino, thank him for his services to the people and democracy and send our condolences to the family. We join the nation — including many in the business community, who knew him, served with him, or called him friend — in their sorrow and prayers. We honor his legacy by rededicating ourselves to helping our countrymen.
History will judge President Aquino well because he bettered our lives by improving the economy and combining pro-people social policies — modernizing education, expanding cash transfers. He formed a relatively clean government that meant taxes went to public services and infra, while foreign and local businesses were excited to make job-creating investments. (END)
