Speech of President Arroyo during an Ecumenical Service
And would it not be a great irony, indeed — but a beautiful irony — if this period which terrorists sought to turn into a time of destruction, becomes instead a time of building and raising all mankind towards progress.
And because we have had in these past few years great partnerships — Malampaya gas, number one trading partner in Europe, number one current investor — I hope that in the years to come, the U.K. and the Philippines will be closer than brothers.
I therefore look forward to boarding my flight, my commercial flight, bearing in mind the great stake that all Filipinos hold in the pursuit of aggressive, common sensical, and constructive foreign policy.
At itong araw na ito, sa araw ng ating General Assembly ng PM Triple ‘A’ muli, of the countless times I have told you, i tell you once again, mabuhay kayo mga tunay na kaakibat para sa kaunlaran!
Last year, at the opening of congress, I asked the politicians for a moratorium on politicking. To some extent, they give us that moratorium. In fact, to a large extent, they gave us cooperation as well in essential reforms. Yes, even the opposition.
And from our people, from the business community, the Chinese community, the whole community, I ask for your patience and understanding. You have done your part in putting back morality and intelligence in government. It is now the government’s turn to put faith in the future back in your hearts. Kaya kayo, mga Filipino-Chinese community, mga namumuno sa Chinese-Filipino Business Club, maraming salamat.
And so today, I am very happy. Nalipay ko nakauban ang atong mga kaigsuunan diri sa Cebu apel sa selebrasyon sa komemorasyon sa People Power. At ako ay nasisiyahan na kasama ang manggagawang Pilipino. Kasi gaya ng sinabi ko noong new year’s message ko, itong taong ito 2002, this is a year that we will dedicate to the great Filipino worker.
