President Benigno S. Aquino III vowed to vigorously continue significant government programs and projects in the country as he enters the second half of his term.

The President mentioned several achievements and optimistic results in the sectors of agriculture, health, education, rural electrification, housing for the military and police and public infrastructure.

“Tinitingala na rin ng buong mundo ang ating pag-asenso. Sa kauna-unahang pagkakataon, nakamit natin ang investment grade status mula sa dalawang pinakamalaking credit ratings agency,” he said in his speech during the Miting de Avance of the Liberal Party at the Amoranto Sports Complex in Quezon City

President Aquino also cited infrastructure projects set to boost commerce and tourism in different parts of the country. These projects that would positively impact the lives of the Filipino people include the new Laguindingan Airport, MRT, NLEX-SLEX Link Expressway, Tarlac-Pangasinan-La Union Expressway, and the new nautical highway from Mindanao to Luzon.

A couple of days before the national elections, the President urged the people to support and vote only for candidates who will truly serve the nation.

“Hindi pa tapos ang laban. Patuloy ang hamon sa ating patibayin ang pundasyon ng mabuting pamamahala. Ngayong darating na halalan, palakasin pa natin ang laban ng tuwid na daan,” he said in his closing statement.
