The Vision for the Philippines:


A country with
1. A re-awakened sense of right and wrong, through the
living examples of our highest leaders;
2. An organized and widely-shared rapid expansion of our
economy through a government dedicated to honing and
mobilizing our peoples skills and energies as well as the
responsible harnessing of our natural resources;
3. A collective belief that doing the right thing does not only
make sense morally, but translates into economic value as
well;
4. Public institutions rebuilt on the strong solidarity of our
society and its communities.

Our Mission:
We will start to make these changes first in
ourselvesby doing the right things, by giving
value to excellence and integrity and rejecting
mediocrity and dishonesty, and by giving priority
to others over ourselves.
We will make these changes across many aspects
of our national life.

A Commitment to Transformational Leadership:


1. From a President who tolerates corruption to a President
who is the nations first and most determined fighter of
corruption.
2. From a government that merely conjures economic growth
statistics that our people know to be unreal to a government
that prioritizes jobs that empower the people and provide
them with opportunities to rise above poverty.
3. From relegating education to just one of many concerns to
making education the central strategy for investing in our
people, reducing poverty and building national
competitiveness.

AQUINO PROMISES TRACKER


The AQUINO PROMISES TRACKER aims to monitor
the promises made by President Benigno Aquino III to
the Filipino nation.
abs-cbnNEWS.com collected dozens of promises, in
topics ranging from taxes to textbooks. The majority
of these promises came from Aquino's 10-point
agenda, which he outlined during his campaign. Other
promises are from his statements during the
campaign and during his first days in office. If a new
promise is made, it will be included in this site.

AQUINO PROMISES TRACKER


The Aquino administration's action on each
promise is rated by abs-cbnNEWS.com in two
levels: first, if the promise is being acted upon,
and then, once finished, if the promise is kept,
broken, or a compromise is reached. The status of
the promises will be updated regularly.
